Morning Walk

Safe, quiet area of old Palm Springs to walk. Don't have a dog but is dog friendly. Beautiful views of the large mountain. Up close and personal.

I think this area of downtown Palm Springs is the most beautiful in the entire dessert communities. The trees are lush, the streets mostly quiet, and the homes very well kept. Spender's restaurant is also among the best in town and is located here.

We stayed in a hotel right outside the Tennis Club District. It's super close to the downtown hot spots, and the landscaping and architecture in the area is beautiful to look at.

This is worth taking time to drive thru the residential and hotel/dining/resort area. You'll take a step back in time in an architectural sense and it is all exquisitely maintained.

With an eye-pleasing mountain as the backdrop, this district is notable for extraordinary cuisine (Spencer's Restaurant) and a variety of hotels from large (The Tennis Club Resort) to smaller fare (The Chase Hotel at Palm Springs).

If you're interested in Mid-Century or Spanish villa architecture just drive around in this, one of the best old neighborhoods to see both new and old styles to whet your artistic appetite. Another great area for self-drive tour is south of the ACE Hotel on E. Palm Canyon. Many original Mid-Century facades and interesting landscaping. This just give a taste,... More

Near the foot of the mountain, you will pass through a quiet neighborhood with a few boutique hotels and older homes en route to the Tennis Club. Many courts and condos plus a wonderful restaurant (Spencer's).

This part of Palm Springs has the charm of the 50's and earlier. Many little boutique hotels that have been updated but still desireable in this location with mature plantings, the mountains touchable, and close to the airport.

We stayed in this neighborhood (at the San Guiliano) ---- great location -- just a few blocks to the main drag (restaurants/shopping) and a few blocks to the start of the Skyline Hiking Trail (starts near the PS Art Museum). Good for biking too --

Went for a run from the del Marcos and saw all these wonderful buildings which you miss when you are in the car. Really worth doing to get a feel of Palm Springs.
