Downtown Palm Springs has many restaurants, sidewalk cafe's, shops, galleries and such to enjoy. Every Thursday evening there is a street fair called the Villagefest with many different kinds of venders and entertainment. The venders that let you taste their bakery and food items were my favorites to visit! The Coachella has all kinds of fests and entertainment that come through. The local casino's host all the big name concerts. The Southwest Arts Festival was my favorite of the fests. The Palm Springs Follies, where all of the entertainers are over 55 made for a wonderful evening out as well.
I could go on and on and on about the events, hiking areas, mountain towns, the Salton Sea and golf courses but just don't have enough space for that. I will suffice to say that in spite of the windy day here and there, that this is a great place to spend the winter.
While I truly missed my friends back in Texas, I met some great folks here, made some new friends and enjoyed having new adventures.
