Things to do

by chrisbtacobell

is the beach a thing we can do? or is it too far??? and is it too cold in December? our little daughter loves the water but we are planning our getaway for December whats the average weather like?
thanks

Palm Springs is great in December... not tornados, sunny and warm weather around 25C - 30C and the beach is readily available. No problem for your daughter to enjoy!
We'll be in Pompano beach, 30 minutes from there... in December too!
Have fun! ...we always do.

Tornados? This question wound up in the California forum, as there is a popular desert resort bearing that name here. If the original poster meant Palm Springs, CA, the info needed appears below:

Palm Springs is out in the desert areas of Southern California and is about 100 miles from the beach (maybe 2 hours drive), so you'll have to do some extra planning for that. The weather for Palm Springs, CA in December will probably be in the low to mid 70s (20-25C) with cool evenings in the low 40s (4-6C). Might get some rain too, but better chance for that in Jan-Feb.

Are you talking about Palm Springs, California? If so, there is no beach near there at all. Or do you mean Palm Beach as in Florida... a different story.

RE: Things to do

by karenincalifornia

The Southern California beaches are nowhere close to Palm Springs (2 out of 3 previous posters were rights). It is not too cold in December, which is why Palm Springs is a popular place in the winter. If your daughter wants water, she'll have no problem in Palm Springs. There is a ridiculous waste of water in Palm Springs with all the mega pools and fake lakes in a desert environment. But don't get me started... At least they haven't built a fake Pacific Ocean beach...not yet anyway

Palm Springs is in California - NOT Florida as is Pompano and Palm Beach.
From here the beach is 100 miles and is cool and windy in December.
Palm Springs will be 80 degrees F and sunshine with lots of swimming pools!

Travel Tips for Palm Springs

Spanish stroll

by 36waterfalls

Nothing much going on in this peaceful town, but the buildings and houses are pretty. A lot of spanish influences here. I thought the hospital looked very graceful. It's nice to go for a stroll around the centre and admire the architecture.

Best kept secret in the Palm Springs Valley

by icunme

DESERT HOT SPRINGS is a 20 minute ride from downtown Palm Canyon Drive in Central Palm Springs - a direct drive North on Indian Ave is really easy - Indian Avenue runs parallel to Palm Canyon Drive. Here you will find the natural hot springs that give the city its name - the Cabot Indian Pueblo Museum which is the most quaint "museum" you'll ever see - the hidaway of Al Capone, Two Bunch Palms - and nestled in the northern mountains, Mission Lakes Country Club (visitors welcomed), where you will see the most spectacular panoramic view of the entire Palm Springs/Coachella Valley. Add to this, the fact that this is the best dollar value for golf, restaurants, and accommodations - especially if you find a condo in Mission Lakes. Venture to North Palm Springs - a delightful and rewarding surprise!

Average Mexican Restaurant

by chibearbob about La Casuelas Terraza

This is a popular restaurant in downtown Palm Springs. My family and I dined here in January, 2006. We enjoy Mexican restaurants and eat at them wherever we expect good, authentic Mexican food - Arizona, LA, San Diego, etc. I was disappointed in that the food was average. Nothing special. I had a pork filled burrito-type meal that was different but just OK.

The surroundings were what you get at most Mexican restaurants. The margarita's were good as was the salsa and chips.

I'd recommend this restaurant for dependable Mexican cuisine. But nothing out of the ordinary.

Elegant American food - yes there is such a thing!

by JimTammy about Davey's Hideaway

Davey's Hideaway is wonderful example of good American cooking. Steak, prime rib, pork roast, and fish or seafood prepared to perfection. The meals include choice of salads, rice, potatos or pasta. Not ala carte!
The servers and staff are friendly knowledgeable and fast. They actually work as a team so anyone passing by will assist your needs. (if your server hasn't already).
Very busy local eatery, I suggest reservations. I have to admit I have the scallops probably every other visit. They are large, tender and perfectly moist. A full 11 oz. serving can be ordered with the chefs suace of the day or my favorite white wine and lemon beurre blanc. Start with the lettuce wedge and blue cheese dressing, (you won't be disappointed), a side of pasta and the fresh vegetable of the day. I prefer a nice Pinot Grigio to complement it all. Enjoy! and tell Bob (owner / Matre D') Tammy sent you!

Agua Caliente Cultural Museum

by joanj

This is a small quaint museum was established in 1991 -"..to leave our prints as our ancestors did for us, so that our children will have a sense of knowing how they are important"...

The Museum traces the history of the Agua Caliente Indians from the earliest prehistoric times to the present , through artifacts left by their ancient people and the stories and photographs left by more recent ancestors.

The evening we stopped by, there was an open evening where members were meeting
and taking part in refreshments, well they invited us in, and made us very welcome and even offered us wine and refreshments. It was small but a very interesting little museum.
