Tired of the weather up North? Well, you are not alone, as every year 100s of thousands of folks come to Palm Springs CA and the surrounding areas to get out of the cold weather, snow, blizzards, ice storms and thundering rain. Why do they call it Palm Springs? And why have people chosen this desert paradise for over 50-years now?
Let's see, it would take me thousands of words and 100s of pages to explain it all, but it might be better if you go and pick yourself up a picture tourist book from Palm Springs, CA and the neighboring desert cities such as Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Indian Wells and La Quinta. Let me recommend the perfect book for you, which also makes a wonderful coffee table piece for your living room:
"Palm Springs Life – 2007-2008 Edition" printed in conjunction with California Prestige Magazine and Hilton Resort Palm Springs. Edited by Milton W. Jones – copyright 2007.
This 380 page volume has gorgeous pictorials on nearly every page, with suggesting to the finest restaurants, spas, golf courses and attractions. You will be amazed that there are so many things to do and see. Whether you are looking for a vacation home, snow-bird rental or just a couple of weeks in a desert paradise, this is one book that will bring it all to life.
All the museums, art galleries and world renowned shopping districts are listed with maps, advice and specialties explained. One thing occurred to me, when I picked up my last copy, this years edition; "What if every tourist destination had a book like this?" Well, with all the traveling that I do, my shelves would be full and I would be a happy man.
