The Palm Springs Air Museum is a perfect way to beat the heat and spend the day viewing vintage aircraft, trying out your skills on the flight simulators and exploring endless exhibits containing artefacts from the various wars over the last century.
One of the best things about the museum, and there are many, is that it is almost entirely interactive. There are very few ropes anywhere in the exhibit halls and there are endless opportunities to hop into an aircraft and explore up close and personal.
The Living Desert is a unique zoo and botanical garden that specializes in the deserts of the world. Giraffes, mountain lions, zebras, and cheetahs are just a few of the incredible animals that take you from Africa to North America.
The opportunity to feed the giraffes is probably the most popular exhibit and in our boy’s minds one of their favourite parts of their day there. It cost an additional $7 per person to feed the giraffes and it was well organized with a wait of roughly 10 minutes for us that day.

Windmill Market is located in a nondescript, industrial part of the city and is truly a hidden gem because the date shakes were delicious!
The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway is the world’s largest rotating tramcar, traveling over two and a half miles up to Mt. San Jacinto State Park. I have been in many trams and gondola’s over the years but this was my first time on a rotating tram.
