The city of Palm Springs is among the top “30 Best Small Cities in America” for 2014 as compiled by Conde Nast Traveler.
Palm Springs secured No. 28, with the website noting the city's "Hollywood glamour" and "breathtaking scenery" while posting a photo of the Saguaro hotel in Palm Springs. They also noted dining at Copley's on Palm Canyon.
Telluride, Colo., was voted No. 1, followed by Santa Fe, NM, Asheville, NC, Carmel-by-the-sea, Calif., and Napa, Calif. Overall, seven California cities made the top 30.
The ranking is based on votes by Conde Nast Traveler readers and based on cities with a population of fewer than 100,000.
“We know our city is great, so it’s fantastic that Conde Nast audience has recognized us to be among the best in the country, “said Mary Jo Ginther, director of Palm Springs Bureau of Tourism. “With our year-round sunshine, casual desert lifestyle, a wide choice of new and renovated hotels and hugely popular special events like the Palm Springs International Film Festival, Modernism Week and so much more, there’s simply no doubt Palm Springs is one of the most happening, vibrant resort destinations on the planet.”
