Palm Desert is a city in Riverside County, California, United States, in the Coachella Valley, approximately 14 miles (23 km) east of Palm Springs and 122 miles (196 km) east of Los Angeles. Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Big Wheel Tours as well as Bump and Grind Trail. Let the collections at Heather James Fine Art and CODA Gallery capture your imagination. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Art Smith Trail and Palm Desert Cross Hiking Trail. Change things up with these side-trips from Palm Desert: Ladder Canyon Trail (in Mecca), Lions, Tigers & Bears (in Alpine) and Borrego Springs (Slot Canyon, Hellhole Canyon Trail, & more). There's still lots to do: trek along Ryan Mountain, stroll through 49 Palms Canyon Trail, see the interesting displays at World Famous Crochet Museum, and take a memorable drive along Big Morongo Canyon Preserve.

To see traveler tips, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Palm Desert trip itinerary builder site .

In December, plan for daily highs up to 70°F, and evening lows to 48°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Fri) so you can travel back home.
