"350 days of sunshine" Top 5 Page for this destination Palm Springs by JLBG

Palm Springs Travel Guide: 359 reviews and 782 photos

Palm Springs is proud of its 350 days of sunshine. When it began to develop as a resort city, asthmatic and hay fever addicted citizens from all over the US settled in this almost pollen free area. As much the city grew, as much the people planted as much as they can around their houses. The result is that now, Palm Springs has as much pollen as any other city in California. However, it is an attractive city where the sky is never grey, the temperature never cold. It has many hot springs, hence the name.

Palm Springs is located in the valley of the upper Colorado Desert with high mountains around. In early April they are still covered with snow. For example, Mount San Jacinto stands 10804 feet above the sea level.

    I am checking out the Palm Springs pages as am planning on returning there next March. I will have to check out the museums this time.

    Personally found this a let down..maybe it's just that Canadian Museums rock..but we have better California desert exhibits here!! It was still an OK way to spend a few hours.
