Cool Off with Legendary Ice Cream

You have not experienced heat busting ice cream until you have stopped in Arrive’s Ice Cream & Shop(pe). This local ice creamery features over 16 different gourmet flavors of ice cream and is open late every day of the week. Beat the heat by taking your family to enjoy this local favorite.

Check Out the Palm Springs Air Museum

If anyone in your family loves anything about airplanes, the Palm Springs Air Museum is a must see for them. This spacious air-conditioned museum features 59 different planes, some of them still flyable. You will be able to explore four different hangars and see these robust beauties in person. Some of the previous pilots and servicemen continue to live in Palm Springs, so you might get lucky and speak with one of them to hear their exciting stories!

Visit Mt. San Jacinto State Park

Not only does the city proper have exciting family activities in the summer but so do the surrounding state parks. Visit the Mt. San Jacinto State Park just outside the city for cooler temperatures and unbelievable views. To get up there you will need to take the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, which on its own is an exciting ride. You will be lifted from the city up to the peak of San Jacinto on a relaxing ride. At the top, enjoy the Peaks Restaurant for a delicious meal or hang out in the Pines Café. Make sure to check out one of the thrilling hiking trails found all throughout the park.

Cutest Garden in the City

If you are not from the Southwest, you probably have not experienced many cacti before. Check out over 3,000 different varieties in the Moorten Botanical Garden. This cool local garden lets your family check out the incredible plant life that they cannot find back at home. The garden is only open from 9:00am to 1:00pm during the summer season, giving you an early day activity to enjoy.
