Way better than a rental car

Play and frolic in Palm Springs

A playground for Hollywood’s rich and famous, Palm Springs is the desert oasis you don’t want to miss. The main turf in the Coachella Valley, this retro-chic city turned luxurious getaway attracts snowbirds, hipsters, and stars from all around the world.

When you’re finished lounging poolside with a cocktail in hand, skip town in your Palm Springs rental car for even more desert wonderland and chill time.

Palm Springs favorites

Embrace the laid back vibe in Palm Springs and you’ll enjoy a weekend well spent.

purple lines

Palm Springs Aerial Tramway

Roll through the city in your Palm Springs car rental alternative and head to this canyon-cuddly gondola ride. While you’re at the top, stick around for a bite at the restaurant or cafe.

Sunnylands

Get your political and sightseeing fix at Sunnylands, the estate of Walter and Leonore Annenberga, a prominent space for diplomatic meetings where you can walk the same halls and gardens of past presidents.

Antique Galleries

Hidden away on a low-key back street, explore the oddities and curious treasures at the Antique Galleries. Peruse the vintage appliances and retro furnishings and see what grabs your attention.

Way better than a rental car

Joshua Tree National Park

Spare a day or two and marvel over the twisty Joshua trees. A treat for stargazers and rock climbers, the rugged landscape is dotted with cacti, stark boulders, and spring wildflowers.

Coachella Valley Preserve

Not to be confused with the giant annual music festival, find the Coachella Valley Preserve 10 miles east of Palm Springs in an arid desert primed for hiking.

Indian Canyons

Venture away from the star-studded city, and you’ll arrive in a hiking paradise at Indian Canyons. Made up of three canyons, opt for horseback riding instead or stay at one of the nearby resorts.

Best Palm Springs driving roads

Purple squiggle

Bradshaw Trail

Get off the beaten track and book a Palm Springs car rental, preferably with four-wheel drive, for a glimpse of the Orocopia and Chuckwalla Mountains in your rear-view mirror.

Palms to Pines Scenic Byway

As the swaying palm trees disappear only to be replaced by pines and firs, this picturesque byway journeys past Mount San Jacinto State Park and San Bernardino National Forest.

Route 74

Well worth the time and distance, cruise along this route toward Julian, with pit stops in the national parks or in the charming towns of Pinyon Pines, Little Paradise, and Oak Grove.
