I'm going to Palm Springs with my family for the first time this summer (I know--I don't know why we're going in summer, either--we just are). Our plan is to let the men golf while we go do things. ;) The question is--what should we do? :)
The Palm Springs Art Museum is a gem in the desert. Ongoing and visiting exhibitions are on tap. Check out its new annex while in town, as well. The Living Desert is a really fun way to spend a day in the desert. One of my favorite stops was the Butterfly Garden.
