When the Sun is Rising

Koffi is the best coffee joint in all of Palm Springs, so there’s no better way to prepare for a sunny day than by starting it here with a Mocha Freeze and a wild blueberry muffin. There’s a cute outdoor area to eat your breakfast and drink your coffee out back, so you can enjoy the temperate sunrise before things start to heat up. If coffee’s not your thing, try an alternate option, like the yummy green tea latte. Skip the Starbucks and give this local treasure a go! This is the most popular and best dessert in Palm Springs currently.

When the Sun’s High in the Sky

Go for a refreshing swim at Palm Spring’s Swim Center! They offer water Aerobic classes here, and if you pack a cooler with snacks and drinks, you’ll be set for hours. You’ll never want to leave once you jump into this crystal-clear saltwater pool.

Take a tour to Tahquitz Canyon. Guided hikes will take you on a journey through incredible ancient rock formations, through breathtaking desert flora and fauna, all the way to a beautiful waterfall. The looping trail is only 2 miles long, so it’s a good hiking choice for a hot summer day.

Ride on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway to take a break from the heat entirely. You’ll be riding in a 360-degree rotating tramcar designed to give you the best views of the surrounding Coachella Valley while carrying you up away from the toasty valley floor up toward the cooler climate of San Jacinto Peak. This is the absolute best way to spend what would otherwise be the hottest part of the day. If you’re a nature lover, this is the place for you, because you’ll see a lot of it on this day-trip adventure!

When the Sun Starts to Set

Dead or Alive is a boldly and aptly named wine bar that opens in the late afternoon. It’s owned by a Palm Springs local, born and raised, who harbors a lifelong passion for wine that shines through in every aspect of this establishment. You’ll love nothing more than to step out of the summer sun for a solid hour or two and spend it sipping on delicious chilled wine from a list that’s always changing from week to week. With that kind of variety, even if you’ve been here before, you’ll want to come again just to see what’s new!
