Palm Springs, California lies on the western edge of the Coachella Valley, within the Colorado Desert. Located approximately 110 miles southeast of Los Angeles and 140 miles northeast of San Diego, it’s an easy 2-hours by freeway. “Down Valley” to the east, are the smaller cities of Cathedral City, Rancho Mirage, Desert Hot Springs, Thousand Palms, Palm Desert, Indian Wells, La Quinta, Bermuda Dunes and Indio The permanent year-round Palm Springs population is 45,000, and doubles during the winter season.
At 487 feet above sea level, Palm Springs is sheltered by the Little San Bernardino Mountains to the north, the Santa Rosa Mountains on the south, and the San Jacinto Mountains to the west with its towering 10,831 foot Mt. San Jacinto, site of the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. Geography gives Palm Springs its famed warm, dry climate. Known for 354 days of sunshine and less than 5.2 inches of rain, winter temperatures average in the 70s with nights in the mid-40s. The dry desert heat of summer pushes daytime temperatures into the 100s enjoyed by sun lovers.
