The desert cities of Palm Springs and Las Vegas are about to find a lot more in common.

The Palm Springs International Airport (PSP),  will conduct a contest starting Sept. 9 (today) that gives residents 21 and older and living in Riverside and San Berbardino counties a chance to win the "Ultimate Vegas Vacation".

The promotion, aimed at increasing awareness about PSP, will run to Sept. 26, and the lucky winner will receive two round-trip tickets from Palm Springs to Las Vegas on Southwest Airlines, a three-night hotel stay at the winner’s choice of one of five Caesars Entertainment properties on the Las Vegas Strip, a nighttime helicopter tour of the Las Vegas Strip from Maverick Helicopters, and a $500 gift card that is valid at 150+ shops and the live theaters located in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood on the strip.
