Holidays to Palm Springs ​

With 354 days of warm sunshine a year, one thing you're guaranteed on holidays to Palm Springs, California is a tan. A relaxed desert oasis complete with swaying palms, this upmarket hideaway has long been a favourite with A-listers from Frank Sinatra to Goldie Hawn - and it's easy to see why. With its reliable climate, manicured streets, stunning desert landscapes and impressive list of things to see and do, it's the perfect place to chill.

Perched on the edge of the Sonoran Desert and surrounded by mountains, the Palm Springs scenery is spectacular. Relax by the pool with a long drink and admire the view from afar. Or get up closer to Mother Nature on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, which hoists you over the red cliffs of Chino Canyon for a spectacular birds-eye view. There's also plenty of hiking trails and outdoor tours in the dramatic wilderness all around.

There's culture in the desert too, with a clutch of museums to keep you occupied. A favourite is the Air Museum, with restored World War II aeroplanes that still fly and passionate volunteers keen to relate their stories. Also the world-class Art Museum, complete with the Annenberg Theatre, which stages productions throughout the year; and the Children's Discovery Museum, with plenty of interactive exhibits for the kids.

The trappings of the celebrity lifestyle are all around in Palm Springs, and that means top-notch places to shop, eat and enjoy life. There's sublime boutique shopping, celebrity-chef restaurants and top-notch golf courses to indulge in. But if, like most, your budget won't quite stretch to Hollywood standards, then there's great outlet stores, family restaurants and Knott's Soak City water park to enjoy too. Because on holidays to Palm Springs, you don't have to be a star to have a stellar time.​
