Visiting Palm Springs in the winter has been a favorite tradition for our family. Each year we make the long drive from the Pacific Northwest with our pup to get some much-needed sunshine and warmth. The only way for our family to enjoy an extended stay is to rent a home large enough to accommodate all of us. We would simply vacation elsewhere if asked to spend our time in Palm Springs at a hotel. Other than sitting next to the pool and soaking in the sun, we always enjoy taking our dog for walks around Palm Springs neighborhoods to look at the architecture. We also take hikes at local trails and go shopping. Every week we look forward to VillageFest and spend hours walking around to see all the vendors. Our favorite neighborhood is Sunmor and our go-to place to eat is Bill's Pizza. We certainly look forward to visiting Palm Springs in the future.
