We recently got back from a trip to Palm Springs and I have to say it’s one of my new favourite spots. Palm Springs has been on my list of places to visit for awhile now and it seemed like the perfect little getaway to relax. I have always associated Palm Springs with Cochella music festival but it’s a great little town to explore, if you are looking for a more chill place then Vegas Palm Springs may be just the place for you!

Palm Springs Vacation guide Where to Stay and Eat
Where to Stay
I must say I am a little bit of a snob when it comes to hotels, I don’t just want to stay anywhere. I also prefer boutique hotels as I find they have more charm than those big chains. When I started researching where to stay I came across a lot of really cool chic places but a lot of them were really pricy.
I came across Casa Cody Hotel and loved the vibe, this hotel is so small that it did not come up in any searches on Expedia or other travel sites. A lot of those small boutique hotels are not on those big travel sites, you will have to dig a bit deeper to find them. Casa Cody is one of the oldest hotels in Palm Springs and Marylin Monroe even stayed there, it was also in a great location as it was only two blocks from the main part of downtown! It was super small which we loved great for relaxing, a lot of the days we were the only ones by the pool! Each room was like a little villa with amazing decor and they had breakfast each day which included fresh croissants and fruit. This hotel was also reasonably priced compared to a lot of the other ones.
Where To Eat
Farm is the perfect place for a great breakfast or lunch get a spot on the patio for some great vibes.
The Pink Cabana at the Sands Hotel & Spa this place is super chic a very instagramable.
Azucar at La Serna Villas is the perfect place to unwind they have an amazing rooftop patio.
Workshop Kitchen & Bar make sure you get reservations in advance!
Boozehounds has an amazing patio where you can bring your pup!
Where to Shop
I didn’t do too much shopping while there but there were definitely a few places I wanted to check out. When I travel I prefer to shop local for a few reasons; I love to support small business and I like to get unique things that I can’t get back home.
This was one of my favourite stores everything in there was so chic & original I highly recommend stoping to check it out. It’s a A 10,000 sq. ft marketplace of makers & merchants from Joshua Tree, the Coachella Valley + beyond.
This little local shop is a great find and right in the centre of town they carry home goods and apparel.
