Information please

by malkey

Will return to PS again at the end of the month. Am looking for several things-namely: tour operators (i.e.local tour companies), any artists groups/organizations. Finally, looking for anyone who has info about glass art. I'm a glass artist, and am looking for someone or some group willing to share kiln and work space. Thanking you in advance for your time/help.

RE: Information please

by RBCal

Kind of a difficult request. I'd ask the Art Museum for info
http://www.psmuseum.org/

In the mountains above Palm Springs there's a town called Idyllwild which has many artists and an art institute. I'd ask them if the art museum can't help you.

It is winter in Idyllwild now so it will be cold up there.

A colossal thanks. Will check into those suggestions. Most appreciated.

Travel Tips for Palm Springs

City of Palm Springs: Visitor Information Center

by mafootje

It's in my eyes located in a strange place, only when you come from LA you will pass this visitor center. So if you need to visit this center please locate it on a map before you go.

Maybe it's smarter to follow signs for the aerial tramway since the information center is located at the beginning of the road that leads to the station.

Inside you find limited information on paper, if you really need to know any specifics ask one of the attendants.

It's a nice visitor center but more focussed to attract attention to paying hotels and attractions, and not so much to the cheaper and also nice hotels and attractions.

Spend Time in Rancho Mirage

by marinarena

Rancho Mirage is like a baby of Palm Springs. RM is smaller yet still grand like prominent PS , with dozen of golf country clubs and luxurious accomodations often frequented of US prez past and present. President Gerald Ford, who passed away in 2007, lived his final years here. His widow's legacy, Betty Ford Center, is located at the Eisenhower(Us prez) Medical Center. RM is in Riverside county and is one of the Coachella Valley 9 (cities).

Ruby's Diner

by freezer61

This bright re-creation of a 1940s-style diner offers cheerful red and white decor; seating space is available at the counter and booths. The atmosphere is casual and family-friendly. The food is inexpensive, with dinner specialties such as country fried steak, pot roast and even Alaskan halibut. The Rubyburgers are popular hamburgers; they are served with various toppings. Leave room for a huge candy-bar flavored milk shake or a banana-pecan sundae....
try the chilli.

Finest Restaurant in Palm Springs

by Donrogelio about Le Vallauris Restaurant

This will be your cheapest trip to France; but your most expensive lunch or dinner in Palm Springs. This is a historic restaurant near the downtown area. It serves the best dishes and wines in a historic Palm Springs home.

I suggest dining here for a special occasion, such as an anniversary. You will dine where movie stars and heads of state have dined before you. While lunch is less expensive, I suggest dining in the patio in the evening. Be forewarned, this place is expensive; but memorable. The white fish; nothing will disapoint.

Aerial Tramway

by kfellague

My favorite things to do is to head to the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway for a truly breathtaking view of the entire Coachella Valley. You get to the top with what is claimed to be the largest rotating trams in the world. From the base station at 2, 543 feet to the mountain station at 8,516 feet, the journey is an experience in itself. The journey takes about 12 minutes but it is worth it. Cost $20 per adult. You discover a big contrast between the desert and the top where temperature can change by more than 30 deg F or 15 deg C. In Winter the mountain is covered in snow. In the mountain there are hiking trails with tall pine and fir trees. I met people from around the world on the trails.

The view towards the Valley shows the 3000 wind mills used for generating electricity, the San Andreas Fault and, of course Palms Springs and other localities. Highly recommeded if you are visiting the area
