A visit to the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway is a must. From two and a half miles up, you can see everything you have planned for the week ahead, and it feels cooler!


Take an amazing midcentury modern tour of Palm Springs with resident expert Robert Imber on one of his Palm Springs Modern Tours. See Richard Neutra’s iconic Kaufmann House and all sorts of lesser known hidden midcentury modern architectural wonders.



Cool down with a scoop! Head on up to the newly revitalized north end of Palm Springs and the ARRIVE Palm Springs to get some of the best ice cream around at the ultra hip Ice Cream & Shop(pe).



Planning a night on the town? Then you need to grab some vintage attire at Palm Springs’ coolest vintage clothing store, The Frippery. From Tiki wear to vintage couture, their selection is amazing.



Go back in time to the glamorous Palm Springs nightlife at Melvyn’s at the Ingleside Inn. This old school restaurant with table side classic dining is like a time machine. And don’t forget to hang out in the bar, as you might even see Trini Lopez!



Trina Turk’s women’s clothing, Mr. Turk for men and, of course, Trina Turk’s home collection are the stores to hit when you want to buy something beautiful that will always remind you of how much fun you had in Palm Springs.



ModernWay is Palm Springs’ oldest and most honored midcentury modern furnishings store with rare and unusual finds from the ‘50s through the swingin’ ‘70s! Step back in time listening to your favorite LP on one of the vintage stereos!
