The vast fields of towering windmills are an iconic feature of the Palm Springs area. Learn more about the history of these fascinating machines and enjoy a picturesque tour of a windmill farm by booking an excursion with Palm Springs Windmill Tours.
The tour begins at Palm Springs Windmill Tours headquarters in Palm Springs, CA, where you will be introduced to renewable wind energy and its significant contributions to the area. Journey along through the evolvement of the local windmill industry from 1982 to today. From the headquarters, enjoy an air-conditioned luxury bus ride to a local windmill farm, where you will be treated to close-up views of the area’s trademark windmills. This is the only tour that takes you beyond the farm’s fencing and allows you to get near the windmills, which is the only way to truly appreciate their impressive size. Standing in the field among countless windmills towering above is a unique opportunity and one that allows you to take in the vastness of their size and power, which you will have the chance to do at various stopping points throughout the tour. Scenic vistas also provide opportunities to capture beautiful photos of the area.
Your Palm Springs Windmill Tour will end with an interesting visit to a solar and natural gas facility, as well as a stop at the Windmill Café for a complimentary date shake.
