Last week my husband I took a wonderful mini-vacation to Palm Springs for 2 nights. Although it’s only a 2 hour drive from LA, you feel like you are worlds away. When we left LA it was cold and rainy, but the weather in Palm Springs was perfect! We stayed at an adorable boutique hotel called the Colony Palms, which is right downtown.
The setting of the hotel was beautiful, with great views of the mountains (and yes, that’s snow at the very top!):
We had the most wonderful meal at the hotel’s restaurant, called The Purple Palm. And spent time in the evenings enjoying each other’s company by the fireplace near the pool:
During the day we enjoyed relaxing by the pool and even though the temperatures were only around 70 each day, it felt much hotter in the desert sun.
And don’t feel too bad for Cali getting left behind in LA…she had a wonderful stay with her grandparents, which of course included lots of pool time. The cold, rainy weather in LA didn’t phase her:
We truly enjoyed our getaway to Palm Springs and look forward to returning before too long. Although, next time we visit, we will have a little one in tow!
