The 5 Rs of the Resort Experience



Mona de Crinis

Ride

Take in the stunning beauty of the San Jacinto Mountains, with glimpses into the Indian Canyons, and Andreas Hills area on horseback. Smoke Tree Stables in Palm Springs offers guided tours on a horse that’s selected specifically for your riding level. Visit www.smoketreestables.com or call 1-760-327-1372 for more information.

Relax

Let someone else hold the reins and relax in a horse-driven carriage through downtown Palm Springs and surrounding areas. Big Horse Carriage Company offers carriage rides daily, weather permitting. Knowledgeable drivers allow the option of a narrated historical tour of the area or a quiet, relaxing ride. It’s your call. For more information, visit www.palmspringscarriages.com or call 1-760-364-4430.

Roam 

From Eco-Desert Adventures to the San Andreas Fault and Joshua Tree National Park to theme parties and team building, Desert Adventures (and its fleet of big red Scramblers)
has a tour or program for almost every desire. Check them out at www.red-jeep.com, locally at 1-760-340-2345 or toll-free at 888-440-5337 (JEEP) ext. 1.

Ramble 

Enjoy a leisurely hike through Andreas Canyon in the Indian Canyons. Perfect for families, the path winds along a quiet stream shaded by California fan palms, meandering near sheer rock walls before opening up to a wide desert landscape. Watch for a seasonal waterfall and an old clubhouse once used by local hunters. Call 1-760-323-6018 for more information.

Rev

Ideal weather, easy streets, and tons of places to explore make Palm Springs a great place for two-wheel travel. See the desert from the back of a Genuine Buddy scooter. Scoot Palm Springs, located at the Ace Hotel & Swim Club, rents both 50cc and 150cc scooters to qualified riders (California residents must possess an M1 permit or license; out-of-state riders need driver’s license and experience to rent a 50cc bike). Rent one for a half-day or 24 hours. Check out the routes Scoot Palm Springs offers, or take off on your own adventure. Visit www.scootpalmsprings.com or call 1-760-413-2883 for reservations and information.
