Getting to Palm Springs

Palm Springs turned into the ideal location to break up my road trip from Tucson Arizona to Carpinteria on the California coast in December 2015. I booked a whole month at a condo downtown.

When I was looking for a warm place to stay in December before flying to Calgary Alberta, I chose Palm Springs again for my winter escape. Palm Springs travel is super easy because there are so many flights available.

My favorite hikes were the guided hikes at Palm Canyon and Tahquitz Canyon which has a beautiful waterfall. You can book your own ranger led interpretive hike and learn about the Agua Caliente Band of the Cahuilla Indians.

There is no extra charge to join one of the ranger led hikes. Information about hours, admission fees, and ranger led hikes is available on the Indian Canyons website.

Getting around

Surprisingly, you can get by without a car in Palm Springs if you are staying downtown. In December 2017, I stayed 3 weeks and rented a car only to visit Joshua Tree National Park.

Walking – You will find that walking around downtown Palm Springs is an an enjoyable way to get around in the cooler months.

Uber or Taxi – affordable options for getting around Palm Springs without a car. Taxi fare from the airport to downtown is around $15 – $20. NOTE: Uber is not allowed to pick up passengers at the airport (dropping off at airport is allowed) so you need to walk out to the street to catch Uber from the airport.

Finding a FREE parking spot downtown is usually not a problem. A new parking garage opened in 2017 near The Palm Springs Art Museum. Access from North Museum Drive (in front of the museum) or from North Palm Canyon Drive at Amado Road. NOTE: 4 hr limit for parking at this location.

There is also a large parking garage with FREE parking located at 275 S Indian Canyon Drive.

Salton Sea

Surreal is the word to describe Salton Sea.

Located 60 miles from Palm Springs and situated on the San Andreas Fault, the Salton Sea is California’s largest lake.

This inland saline lake in the Sonoran Desert of Southeastern California did not exist until the early 1900’s when the Colorado River burst through man-made irrigation controls near Yuma Arizona. For more than a year the river flowed into the Salton Basin.

In 1907 a series of protective levees stopped the flow of water. By that time the Salton Sea measured 40 miles (64 km) by 13 miles (21 km) and covered around 400 square miles (644 sq km).

The Salton Sea varies in size depending on the rains.

San Diego’s regional water agency stopped sending water to the Salton Sea in January 2018. The Salton Sea could evaporate entirely.

On June 6, 2018 voters approved $200 million to preserve the Salton Sea.

Salvation Mountain and Slab City

Local resident Leonard Knight created Salvation Mountain. After Leonard died in 2014, a group of volunteers has been maintaining the site. Leonard made the mountain with Adobe mixed with straw and covered it with paint to protect it from erosion.

If you take a day trip to the Salton Sea you may as well visit Salvation Mountain and Slab City while you are in the neighborhood.


Salvation Mountain addressBeal Rd, Niland, CA 92257

Slab City is about 2.5 miles from Salvation Mountain. This community of squatters as well as Snow Birds from Canada and colder regions of the USA live off the grid. There is no running water, no electricity, no trash pickup, no toilets nor sewer service.

There is also no fee for parking at Slab City or “The Slabs” as it is commonly known.

Formerly a military operation know as Camp Dunlap, the army removed all the building back in the mid-fifties, leaving the concrete slabs in place. By the mid-sixties people settled in Slab City, sort of an unofficial RV Park. Anyone could set up camp at Slab City.

Thank you for this wonderful and inspiring article. Just took my first solo trip, as part of acknowledging my 60th Birthday - OMG, I loved it! Splurged on a first class, one way ticket (liked the flexibility of that) - flew cross country to Palm Springs and after 8 nights, headed to Coronado... decided to head home after 2 weeks. I've been married for 35 years, have a 25 year old son (we've taken several Mother/Son trips, which I also highly recommend), but have not done much solo traveling. Honestly, until recently I didn't have much interest or desire. I will absolutely do this again and often. Starting in the US was good for me. Stayed at the Avalon Boutique Hotel in Palm Springs, based on your recommendation and it was divine! (Hotel staff shared that Marilyn Monroe often stayed there; typically in room 108 or 109.) Coronado only about 3 hours away, so took that opportunity to stay in the Hotel Del Coronado; very different from Palm Springs... but a place I think everyone should be able to visit, at least once. It was extremely freeing - in a way I'd not imagined - to have the time, with no expectations. And to simply chose, based on your desires. The first night out at a nice - white table cloth restaurant - alone, was a little uncomfortable; but after that first night, not so much. No one cares; everyone's wrapped up in their dinner experience. And I made it a point, NOT to stare at my phone. I took a book with me, in case I felt I wanted to read... but never took it out. Thank you for these posts; thank you for this site - it was comforting and encouraging - helped me make this wonderful trip. I took a journal, and wrote almost every day. I just "like myself more" than I have in a while.

Beth, thank you for taking the time to comment and Happy Birthday! What a wonderful way to honor your 60th and I'm so pleased that you loved Palm Springs and traveling solo! It's always good to get feedback from readers, especially when it's so positive :) Glad you enjoyed the Avalon Hotel so much - that's a great location. Thanks for the tip on Coronado, I haven't been yet and it is a short drive from Palm Springs so it's on my list for next time. Congrats on passing the dining alone final exam LOL, it's daunting at first but then you get to people watch and get lost in your own thoughts, and it becomes enjoyable. Your comment really made my day, and maybe you are already planning and dreaming about your next solo trip. Congratulations on making your 60th birthday so memorable! Cheers to you! Susan

Informative article which shows thoughtfulness, carefulness, and real concern for others who don't know the area. Thank you.

Wednesday 6th of February 2019

Paul, Thank you for your comment. I'm glad you found the Palm Springs guide useful. When I first visited PS I had no idea there was so much to do in the area.


Saturday 16th of June 2018

Glad to see you give the PS Art Museum some love. It's a great place with wonderful shows and events... most people don't know it's there! Well done.

Susan Moore

Sunday 17th of June 2018

Mark, thank you! Yes, Palm Springs Art Museum is a must visit for me every time I go to PS.


Sunday 10th of June 2018

WOW, Susan! What a great guide. I have to say I always thought of Palm Springs as a place for the rich. I can see that not the case. I love the photo of the cacti at Sunnylands. Looks like you're on another planet.

Susan Moore

Sunday 10th of June 2018

Thank you Nancie! Yes, I thought the same about Palm Springs but it's much more than a rich folks playground. And it'a a great place to escape the cold Canadian winter ;) I've enjoyed two Decembers in Palm Springs so far, hope to get back this year or next. Sunnylands gardens are beautifully maintained. There's a patio at the cafe so you get to enjoy lunch and the cacti garden at the same time. Cheers, Susan
