Travel to Palm Springs a Desert Oasis

Picturesque snowcapped peaks create a startlingly beautiful backdrop to the world famous desert oasis, Palm Springs in California. Green valleys, elegant date palms, succulent orange trees and the delicious warmth of the winter sun have combined to make this area a favorite getaway since the mid-thirties when glamorous Hollywood made Palm Springs its playground.

Today, Palm Springs continues to be an inviting haven from cold winter winds. Retirees, who might only be able to afford to vacation one or two weeks, will find many budget timeshares available for rent. With an international airport, and just a couple of hours drive by car from both Los Angeles and San Diego, Palm Springs enjoys over 3 million visitors a year.

If you've heard of Palm Springs you've heard that it has over 100 golf courses, many of them world class. You may also know that the town is an art community with over 100 art galleries. The Palm Springs Aerial Tram is a famous engineering feat that takes visitors 8,500 feet from the valley floor up to San Jacinto State Park. There during the winter months, snow conditions permitting, you can cross-country ski or snowshoe, with equipment rentals available.

There are a few things to do in Palm Springs that just might surprise you. Every Thursday evening don your most fashionable travelin' shoes and enjoy the greatest outdoor market in the world. Held in downtown Palm Springs, "VilliageFest!" is a delight of flowers, fresh fruit and vegetables, artisians' sculptures, paintings, and jewelry, street entertainers, and delectable sweets. And an added bonus - this event is "dog-friendly!"

For "The Most Fun You'll Have in Palm Springs" plan to attend the Palm Springs Follies. Held in the historic Plaza Theater, which opened its doors in 1936, the Follies are a rip-roaring combination of comedy, music and dance - all performed by a cast whose youngest member is 55 and oldest member is 85! The 2009/2010 show is "Let The Good Times Roll!" featuring music from the Big Bands to Swing, from Doo-Wop to Motown. For an added sparkle, the Christmas Holidays make their appearance in the show during November and December.

Delight in a home cooked meal in your timeshare kitchen from the fresh food you purchased at "VilliageFest!" or enjoy fine dining at one of Palm Springs' many restaurants. And while relaxing you're sure to savor the memories of the fun events and activities you've enjoyed during the day in your own winter playground of Palm Springs.
