A Solo adventure in palm springs

I visited Palm Springs last month in February for Alt Summit and it has been on my mind ever since. Due to a couple of flight cancellations, I got bonus 24 hours in Palm Springs and, let’s just say, that one extra day was just enough to fall madly in love with that place.  Palm Springs has its own vibe, and one simply has to get it! It’s like being transported back in time, in the mid century era, and living that lifestyle. As a midcentury modern lover, I was in paradise.

I experienced the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway and went on a short wilderness walk, enjoyed the midcentury architecture (including some celebrity homes from the Rat Pack era)  and the spanish cottages, and spent some time in downtown Palm Springs visiting some art galleries. I, of course, had my camera with me and I could have just got lost with it for hours. It was an ideal ‘my kind of day’ and I’m so glad I got a chance to go on a solo trip -- it was nerve-racking at times but so worth it!

There’s a lot more I wanted to do -- visit Joshua Tree, take a more leisurely tour of the architecture, and experience more of its desert lifestyle. I would love to travel again with my family one day, perhaps for the Modernism Week.

Have you been to Palm Springs? Is it on your bucket list?
