Take a weekend to relax in the hot mineral baths of the local
deserts. While Palm Springs offers all the upscale spas &
glitz you could dream about, Desert Hot Springs is a much better
deal. Ride the tram up to Mt. San Jacinto & enjoy the breathtaking
views atop the 8000 foot station. Eat lunch in the restaurant
& take a nature walk. Winter season may also see some snow
& horse rides are available in warmer months. Visit the famous
high desert area & enjoy some bizarre, but cool scenery at
Joshua Tree National Monument.
