Palm Springs is a desert oasis. You’ll be overcome by the awe-inspiring and ancient desert landscape as you travel here, whether you’re coming by car or plane, and once you hit this patch of life that is Palm Springs, you’ll feel like you’ve entered a bubble of paradise. That’s the perfect atmosphere for a romantic getaway! Save these five romantic ideas for your getaway for two in Palm Springs:
Adventure to San Andreas Fault
You and your significant other will get a kick out of this. Join a small-group tour into the otherworldly landscape of this active earthquake fault system, whose name precedes itself. Explore deep canyons, a natural oasis, and learn about the Cahuilla natives who lived here.
Palm Springs Aerial Tramway
Summer can be a hot affair in Palm Springs, so take advantage of the Palm Springs Aerial Tram to enjoy a 5,873-foot elevation change into the cooler and wildly different climate of the beautiful San Jacinto Mountains. Step into the spacious, rounded and rotating tram car together and enjoy a full 360 view of Palm Springs, California and the surrounding state park.
Hot Air Balloon Ride
If the San Jacinto Mountains aren’t high enough in elevation for you, book a tour of the sky with a hot air balloon ride! This is an excellent date idea that the two of you will never forget. Your bird’s eye view of the native environment (all the way from the desert to the mountain tops) will leave you in wonder.
Joshua Tree National Park
Take a day trip to Joshua Tree National Park to see one of the most iconic desert landscapes in the entire world. Distinguished by its stark landscapes, majestic rock formations, and the namesake Joshua trees (yucca palms) with their shapely silhouettes against the blue desert sky, this is a great place to take a day hike. Just make sure to pack a romantic picnic and some ice-cold water!
On Thursdays in downtown Palm Springs you can check out Village Fest, which is consistently voted the best event in the area and sees thousands of visitors worth of foot traffic every week. Here you can take your time shopping, browse the booths bursting with local art and hand-crafted items, and enjoy roadside entertainment while you eat to end your day out with a bang.
