Travel: Spring Break to Palm Springs, California | @PalmSpringsCA @RenaissancePS2

I recently shared tips about visiting the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway with Kids. As we were driving around Palm Springs, it reminded me a little of driving around LA with streets lined with palm trees.

Isn’t she fabulous?
Seeing the “Forever Marilyn” Sculpture up close was pretty cool. (Hint: there’s a Starbucks across the street. =))

UPDATE: The exhibit is only here for a limited time and due to leave in June 2013. They just extended it for another 90 days thru end of August 2013.

We wanted to stay really close to the tramway so we decided to stay at the Renaissance Hotel in Palm Springs. As you may already know, they have really nice properties. We liked that it had a young feel to it. Here are a few shots we took with the short time we were there.

We really liked our room and the view of the mountains.

Always Pack a Bathing Suit!!
I know it’s in the middle of winter, but it was warm enough to wear shorts and lay out. Not sure if you can see this but in the bottom left corner, they have outdoor fire-pits. (Great in the evening for a nightcap and it’s next to a bar.)

The Renaissance Palm Springs Hotel is located on 888 E. Tahquitz Canyon Way in Palm Springs, California. For more information, please visit their website here:
