Things to see and do in Palm Springs

Palm Springs experiences

Palm Springs Aerial Tramway

Palm Springs Aerial Tramway

If we have one pro tip for anyone travelling the two and half miles along the rugged cliffs of Chino Canyon aboard the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, it's this: do remember to keep breathing and take loads of photos. Yes, the views from the world's largest rotating tram car - it slowly turns as it climbs into Mount San Jacinto State Park! - are awe-inspiring; and yes, it can be a little hard to take in the beauty of your spectacular surroundings. But save some puff for the 50 miles of hiking trails, restaurant, cocktail lounge, natural history museum and documentary theatre once you exit at Mountain Station.
