Say goodbye to the snowy white Christmas of the past and come spend the most joyous time of year in the heart of the desert in our sunny oasis of Palm Springs! This is an excellent season to come visit us, as the weather is breezy and perfect during the day, and chilly enough in the evening to still cuddle up around the fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate. With gorgeous desert scenery, seasonal events, and classic Palm Springs Christmas Vacation sightseeing, it’s truly a magical place to spend the holidays!
Gorgeous Vacation Homes for Your Holiday Getaway
Our properties are custom furnished and offer a touch of intimacy, as well as a home-away-from-home feeling during the holidays that you’d be hard pressed to find in a hotel room. We offer sprawling homes and private villas ranging from one bedroom up to upwards of four, and some are right on the golf course, should you want to spend the season in full relaxation mode and hit the greens right from your own community! Our vacation rentals have fully equipped kitchens, some with gourmet features and appliances that will make whipping up a Christmas feast look effortless. Each property is unique, but common highlights include flat-screen televisions, high-speed internet, generous living areas, outdoor dining spaces, and more! Whether you’re vacationing with just a few close family members or having a festive reunion with tons of family and friends, we have something in our portfolio to fit your group!
When guests arrive in Palm Springs for the Christmas holiday, they can always rest assured that there will be no need to shovel snow. However, for those visitors who want to play in the snow, Palm Springs can provide just that! The majestic San Jacinto Mountains stand as a massive backdrop just outside of town, and the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway can whisk you up to an altitude of nearly 9,000 feet, not only play in the snow, but also obtain the best views over the Coachella Valley.
Of course, more often than not, the weather during Christmas is usually the envy of the rest of the country. The temperatures during the day are quite comfortable, dropping down at nighttime to a brisk chill. Fortunately, at Palm Springs Getaways, we can find you the right vacation rental in order to keep you comfortable and cozy. In fact, many of our properties contain fireplaces that are perfect not only for keeping warm, but they also add to the charm and ambience of the season.
As mentioned above, the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway transports visitors to soaring heights and snow (if the proper storm has come through), as well as the added Christmas gift of holiday lights and high-school carolers. On the first Saturday of December, the Festival of Lights Parade draws thousands of people to see Christmas pomp and pageantry in the form of floats, marching bands, and twinkling lights on Palm Canyon Drive in downtown Palm Springs. Additionally, since this town highlights a wide variety of architectural gems, from the homes and businesses themselves to the golf courses and spa resorts, the desert landscape shines with Christmas decorations at every glance.
When guests stay at one of the vacation rentals from Palm Springs Getaways, they will no doubt have all of the tools necessary to create a one-of-a-kind masterpiece dinner. However, sometimes it is better if someone else prepares the traditional meal. If you seek a meal with a view, check out the Pines Café or Peaks Restaurant atop the San Jacinto Mountains, where the kitchen serves honey-glazed ham, turkey breast, prime rib and more. More elegant dining includes the legendary Le Vallauris for French cuisine, while Copley’s on Palm Canyon serves American comfort food.
See All of the Palm Springs Christmas Vacation Lights
There’s plenty of events in the Palm Springs Christmas Vacation area that allow you to marvel at a spectacle of Christmas lights, starting with the Annual Festival of Lights parade in downtown Palm Springs on the iconic Palm Canyon Drive. Just a few miles east, Cathedral City’s Minerva Road becomes the fantastic “Candy Cane Lane”, and nearly every house on the street is blanketed in a sparkling sea of Christmas lights. At the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens, Wildlights takes place from late November to Christmas Eve, and the zoo transforms into a winter wonderland with over a million glowing lights, animal lanterns, as well as music, arts and crafts, and carousel rides.
