Bay Area Reporter: Palm Springs offers summer deals

I was eating lunch at the Hacienda at Warm Sands in Palm Springs last Tuesday in 92-degree heat and an hour later I was working off the meal on a hike in Mount San Jacinto State Park, where it was a very comfortable 60 degrees. While some may be reluctant to visit Palm Springs in the middle of the summer, there is still plenty to do – even outside – despite the average high temperature this time of year of 100-plus.
