Whether you're going for a musical festival or just to enjoy the scenery, you can fly from San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to Palm Springs International Airport (PSP) in about 90 minutes.
Palm Springs is a premier tourist spot and was often visited by members of the Rat Pack in the 50's and 60's. Nestled in the recently hip Coachella Valley, Palm Springs offers access to the beautiful San Jacinto Mountains and the stoic Joshua Tree National Park.
During the second and third weeks in April, Palm Springs becomes a hotbed of culture as people visit the nearby Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio.
Anyone who goes to Palm Springs must take a ride in the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. It literally takes you from the desert floor to the tall pines of the San Jacinto Mountains.
The Palm Springs Art Museum displays the last century of American art and the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens is a great place to see desert flora and fauna.
PSP is practically located adjacent to downtown. SunBus Route 24 will get you from the airport directly to downtown Palm Springs. Many people opt to rent a car so that they can explore the scenic Highway 111 in the Coachella Valley.
