A must do in Palm Springs. The tramway is outside of the city and a drive uphill to base station which looked ok until I saw the signs that warned of the need to avoid overheating of car by turning off air con.

Do not worry about the view form the car as the rotating carriage allows you a full 360 view that revolves a number of times on the ascent.

We used this to get away from the heat of the day in P Springs and it worked. The top is still warm and you will need hats and sun cream in August.

At the top there is a cafe and restaurant, both of which charge high prices so be prepared for that.
