PLACES TO EAT/ DRINK/ COFFEE:
1. Tonga Hut (pictured below): This tiki hut is awesome, and it even has a secret room! Make sure to ask about it!
2. Ernest Coffee: Had some delicious lattes from here, and at night the outside area connects to another tiki bar!
3. The Saguaro(pictured below): This hotel is AMAZING looking, but the music at the pool was super loud, and it was way too much of a scene for us to stick around. Definitely a must-see though!
4. King’s Highway (At the Ace Hotel): The yummiest brunch!
5. Jake’s: We had late lunch here and it was so delicious! I had the yummiest tuna salad.
6. Great Shakes: If you’re into sweets, GO HERE. My milkshake was hands-down the best one ever, and it comes with a mini donut on the straw!
7. In N Out: No, I’m not kidding. The best burger and fries maybe ever!
8. El Mirasol: We went here for drinks and lunch on a super hot day, and it didn’t fail us!
THINGS TO DO:
1. Moorten Botanical Gardens (pictured): I’m sure you’ve seen pictures of this Greenhouse all over instagram, but it really is worth seeing in person. It’s mind bogglingly magical guys. The entire garden was created by a couple who collected all of these cacti for many years.
2. Cabazon Dinosaurs(pictured): These giant dinosaurs are a riot! It’s soooo windy, and they’re in a really weird location off the side of a highway, but they’re awesome to see.
3. #ThatPinkDoor(pictured): Okay, this door is just another mid-century modern door, but the neighborhood it stands in is worth seeing. The houses are so inspiring, and there were so many other interestingly painted doors, and mid-century modern architecture!
4. Elvis’ Honeymoon Hideaway (pictured): I am so glad we took this tour! It costs $30, and they hold them at 1PM and 3:30PM daily. The house is actually on the market for 7 million, and we learned a ton of history about Elvis and his time living in it. They allow you to take photos, and to sit on the original furniture which I thought was wild.
… I’ll be back to share some Palm Springs outfits soon!
