Palm Springs & Joshua Tree Park Feb2016

IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO ESCAPE THE WINTER DOLDRUMS I HIGHLY RECOMMEND PALM SPRINGS. IT'S ON THE TIPPING POINT OF BEING A PREMIER DESTINATION AGAIN AFTER YEARS OF NEGLECT AND HAS A SIMILAR FEEL AS MIAMI DID IN THE EARLY NINETIES AND TULUM BEFORE IT BECAME TRENDY. HERE IN PALM SPRINGS THE MID CENTURY DESIGN IS PHENOMENAL, PEOPLE CHARMING AND THE MOUNTAIN VISTAS A PURE TREAT.

FOR BEST COFFEE CHECK OUT LOCAL COFFEE BREWERS ERNEST, SHOPPING AT THIRTEEN FORTY FIVE AND CHRISTOPHER ANTHONY. I STAY AT THE ACE POOL CLUB BUT THERE'S GREAT NEW HOTELS POPPING UP ALL THE TIME. LASTLY, YOU HAVE TO GO TO JOSHUA TREE PARK. IT'S A SHORT TRIP FROM PALM SPRINGS AND THE ELEVATION MAKES IT ABOUT 10-15 DEGREES COOLER WHICH IS A BONUS OUT HERE IN THE DESERT.
