Palm Springs Attractions
Activities abound in Palm Springs and just a short drive from Palm Mountain Resort & Spa. Our favorites include the Desert Museum, Wet & Wild Water Park, Indian Canyons, and, of course, the breathtaking Aerial Tramway.
Day trips to Idyllwild, Joshua Tree National Park, and the Temecula Wineries are always a favorite. The Palm Mountain Resort is conveniently close to all, with bus transportation and taxi service stopping near The Resort.
Walk through history in the three air-conditioned hangars of the Palm Springs Air Museum. Talk to veterans and visit the 27 flyable WWII airplanes, including a P47, Spitfire, and B25 (all used in the movie Pearl Harbor), as well as B17 "Flying Fortress" and a static restored SBD Trainer plane rescued from 50 years at the bottom of Lake Michigan. Twenty vintage automobiles (including a 1948 Tucker and a 1928 copper-trimmed Rickenbacker) gleam next to the Combat Photography, Flying Tigers, and Women in WWII displays.
A diorama showing Pearl Harbor before the attack is positioned next to a $1,000,000 exhibit of five handcrafted metal models of navy vessels. Watch a free video in the Buddy Rogers Theater and then test your flying skills on the combat computer flight simulators.
