A quick guide to Palm Springs if you only have 2 days and a nickel to spare.
Stay at The Movie Colony, a small boutique hotel with bungalows tucked away between palm trees.
Take a drive around town on a self guided tour of all the Mid Century modern architecture like this one by Richard Neutra.
Ascend 2.5 miles up into Mount San Jacinto on the Aerial Tramway for a scenic hike.
A stroll down Palm Canyon Drive will bring you to a bevy of shops, bars, and restaurants. On Thursday nights the street turns into the Villagefest nightmarket.
Venture further into the desert and you will find an ocean. The Salton Sea is truly a freak of nature whose beauty is unusual but undeniable.
A few miles from the Salton Sea is a dirt road that leads to the Painted Canyons. Drive down it if you dare or at least tell someone. I say this because it is incredibly isolated and very 127 Hours.
