  • Your photography: wowza! Love it! So colorful, and you two are just the most photogenic people.

  • I stayed in the Horizon Hotel when visiting from the UK last year it’s a mid-century modern dream, absolute perfection.

  • I just came back from Palm Springs yesterday. We finally took the drive to Salvation Mountain, simply amazing. We have been wanting to go for a while. Such a relating time. Also, we loved our brunch at Cheekys! Got that idea from you.

  • Great photos! I’ve never been but it looks so colorful!



  • This looks so fantastic. My in laws live outside Phoenix and I’ve been nagging my husband to do a road trip to Palm Springs next time we go visit them. Needs to happen…

  • Palm Springs is great! We’ve never stayed at ACE, but friends have. Great spot.

  • While you were there, you might have seen some beautiful mountains towering nearby. Next time you visit go up to Idyllwild, it’s less than an hour up the mountain and it’s a beautiful artsy mountain town. You’ll be amazed how quickly you go from a dry palm desert to a pine forest! (In fact, the highway is called Palms to Pines Highway.)

    I lived in Idyllwild for two years and attended an arts high school they have up there. There are a ton of art galleries and cute restaurants. If you go, you NEED to stop by the coffee shop, Higher Grounds Coffee. Some of the best coffee I have ever tasted. My fiance used to work there when we lived in the area. I’m far up north now, but I miss Idyllwild so much!

  • Other local faves are Palm Greens Cafe, Nature’s Cafe, the farmers’ market on Saturday morning, Camelot Theatres, the Palm Sorings Art Museum, Joshua Tree, and the Thursday street fair.

  • I would love to visit Salvation Mountain.

  • Oh my goodness, I love Palm Springs! We were there over the new year and fell in love! One place I loved was the Nature’s Health Food & Cafe (www.natureshealthfoodcafe.com), which is a lovely juice bar. They had so many options for juice including one with prickly pear & great dishes! Next time we visit I’d love to go to the tram and for sure Salvation Mountain! What a special trip! =)
