Nestled on the edge of Coachella Valley lies an unmatched destination for sun seekers, adventure lovers, and laid-back atmosphere connoisseurs. If you’re looking for the perfect place to get away, whether by plane, car, or screen – this is it. Enjoy just the right amount of sun, a dash of Hollywood stardust, and an unmatched atmosphere through the tantalizing photos below.
Aside from offering countless unique boutique shops, galleries, and intriguing museums, one of Palm Springs’ best qualities is its proximity to nature. Could it be the calming scenes of the desert that gives this locale its relaxed, laid back vibes? Fall head over heels into desert life with an evening spent contemplating the stars from Joshua Tree National Park, you don’t want to miss that sunset view.
J Tree. So if you're going to come out to the desert you gotta do things right and head up to Joshua Tree for at least a few hours, I recommend sunset. Then head to Pappy and Harriet's for dinner and usually great music. Pappy's is such a gem of the hi-desert I can't stress enough how important it is that you just go there. Other places that should be mentioned but that aren't getting their own posts: Birba (bar/dinner), Jake's (brunch), Workshop (dinner), Koffi (coffee), Ernest (coffee), and Hacienda Cantina (pool+bar). Thanks for following along my Palm Springs weekend takeover! – @csleeper #KarlaOnVacationTakeover
A far and wide favorite from locals and travelers alike is the Moorten Botanical Gardens. You’ll be dazzled by the rugged and ephemeral beauty found along it’s many arid pathways.
The most ultimate #desertvibes can be found at Moorten Botanical Garden. Such a magical cactus wonderland that I wish was my backyard. 🌵🌵🌵 If you stop by here (and you should) definitely take some time to chat with the owner, Clark, about Palm Springs' golden age. (Note: entry is $4 bucks so bring that with ya it’s worth it) – @csleeper #KarlaOnVacationTakeover
Cheeky’s – the place to be for breakfast. Some claim it’s the best around! Look forward to an always changing experience with new menus weekly. Don’t miss taking a bite out of this delicious slice of Palm Springs!
Heeeey @csleeper here! Hope you all enjoy my tour de Palm Springs this weekend 🙂 One of my favorite things is going out for brunch, and while there are quite a few great places to get your brunch on, I highlyyyy suggest Cheeky's! The wait is usually long but you need to go, if not for any other reason then the fact that they have a flight of bacon for $5 on their menu. The jalapeño one is amazing. Like, I just didn’t know bacon could be that good. Eggs bene is also prime. This is the first Palm Springs post and you're already ready to book your next vacay, am I right?! – @csleeper #KarlaOnVacationTakeover
Ace Hotel – much more than just a place to stay, but rather an excursion in and of itself. Curators have given new life to this once forgotten mid-century desert modern, adding a unique culture to go with its fresh yet bohemian design. An unforgettable charm awaits with unhindered desert art and decor, frequent events, great food, and a monumental locale.
