Trendy. Eclectic. Walkable. Palm Springs is a treasure hunter paradise. Tucked along palm tree lined streets is a wonderful assortment of fashion and crafts boutiques, galleries, artist studios and vintage valuables. Many cafes and restaurants are squeezed between to allow you to rest your feet for a bite, latte or martini.
