Palm Desert: Adventure & Culture Reach New Heights

Posted on February 19, 2010 in Trip Ideas

Indecisive travelers, we have your answer: Palm Desert, California. Outdoor fanatic traveling engineer recently hit the area’s famous parks and trails--and also enjoyed top-notch food, top-shelf shopping, casino hopping, birding, a film festival, and even a date garden. Reading his journal is like experiencing 10 trips rolled into one.

Palm Desert Culture and Adventure is chock-full of ideas for activities in and around the Coachella Valley oasis. Winter is a great time to go, traveling engineer says, to catch the Palm Springs International Film Festival and a “super-secret movie”--though our traveler skipped the showing because (hint, hint) “at least one of us would have exploded if she had been sworn not to discuss the film.”

As usual, traveling engineer’s outdoor adventures are highlights of the journal, peaking with the photo above and with this photo that depicts the true majesty of the trails.

Be sure to see the full journal for wildlife photos, tips for Joshua Tree National Park, and more.
