VISUAL MEMORIES | THE BEST OF PALM SPRINGS
Now it is turning colder in the UK, I'm wishing I could be back in the intense desert heat in Palm Springs, so I thought I would write a blogpost on the best bits of Palm Springs.
Since Palm Springs is such a relaxed place, there is nothing better than sitting by the pool and soaking up the sun, for at 5 minutes until you get way too hot, most days in July it was over 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
In terms of restaurants, I would recommend are Lulu California Bistro they do I really good selection of food-breakfast, lunch and dinner. I went for dinner with my family and had the Angel Hair Pomodoro which was probably the best pasta dish I have ever had. The interior is lovely and cool, which is such a nice change from the intense heat outside which is still prominent even in the evenings in Summer.
The other is Las Casuelas Terrazza, a Mexican restaurant (the building on the right of the photo below). You have the option to sit outside on the patio, or inside where there is usually a band playing. I always go for the burritos there served with refried beans and guacamole.
Also Thai Smile is a great Thai Restaurant, I would really recommend their Pad Thai, the portion size is huge but it's very tasty.
Every Thursday evening there is a market along South Palm Canyon Drive called Palm Springs VillageFest. There are numerous stalls selling handmade soaps, candles, artwork, to food and entertainment. There is always such a nice atmosphere, and a great chance to buy some locally made produce. The photo below was from a stall selling fruit soaps and bath-bombs which are really sweet.
