When it’s safe and recommended by government and health officials to do so, this is how I’m spending my time post-quarantine in Greater Palm Springs. 1 | Desert Getaway Post Quarantine Palm Springs Photography Provided By: Miramonte Vacation or staycation—whatever it may be—I’m living it up in Greater Palm Springs after quarantine. Noteworthy resorts include Miramonte Indian Wells Resort & Spa, Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa or Riviera Palm Springs for ultimate relaxation. Soak in the warm desert sun as your worries melt away. 2 | Juice, Hike, Repeat Post Quarantine Palm Springs Photography By: George Duchannes Photography By: George Duchannes A raw, organic and fresh juice sets my tone for the day. My go-to drink is The Original at Fresh Juice Bar. I’m feeling energized and ready to conquer a hike after slurping down this refreshing juice. I can’t wait to get back on those hiking trails with a group of my outdoorsy-friends! 3 | Lunch at Heirloom Craft Kitchen Photo By: John Pacheco Dining with friends, surrounded by strangers, thinking every meal that the waiter walks by with is yours—yeah, I miss those times. Heirloom Craft Kitchen in Indio has delicious tater tots and lemon avocado toast that make for the ideal lunch. See you there! 4 | Shopping Is My Cardio Post Quarantine Palm Springs Photography By: Jane Chouteau Photography By: Jane Chouteau Ah, to get dressed and go shopping for even more clothes! I’m grabbing my credit card and hitting Blonde Boutique, Zense, Elizabeth & Prince, Rancho Relaxo and splurging at Leeds & Sons. Shop ‘till ya drop, am I right? 5 | A Stop at Libra Post Quarantine Palm Springs Photography By: Rick Rodríguez Libra has curated, trustworthy and premium cannabis products. Libra isn’t intimidating to explore–the staff guides you with knowledgeable recommendations. I’m going to browse around and pick up a few products I love. 6 | Coffee Shop Grind Photography By: Bianca Simonian A workspace other than my dining room table is desperately needed. Coffee shops are my go-to work environment, providing inspiration and the necessary amount of caffeine to complete an assignment. While I typically like exploring a new coffee shop each time, my go-tos are IW Coffee and Chai Bar, Old Town Coffee Company and Ernest Coffee. 7 | Dinner Photography By: Rachel Hoops Photography Provided By: Ristorante Mamma Gina Photography By: Nathan Cox There’s nothing like indulging in your favorite meal at dinner. I’m booking a reservation as soon as I can at Catalan, Ristorante Mamma Gina, Trio, Casuelas Café, Cork Tree and Lulu California Bistro. It’s been a while since dining out, so I’m going all in with appetizers, drinks, main dishes and dessert. Cheers! 8 | Whole Lotta Hugs This one is pretty straight-forward, but hugging family and friends is definitely on the list for post-quarantine. 9 | Plan an International Trip Saving destination pins on Pinterest, searching for flights and looking at past photos of trips has been a weekly routine of mine, and the day will soon come when a trip can be booked! (I’m not packing my bags already…) 10 | Appreciate the Small Things Like chatting with a stranger, being surrounded by loved ones, showing gratitude towards frontline workers and appreciating good health.
