3. Take the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway ride. Its romantic and offers the best views in the Coachella valley.

4. Take a hike at Indian Canyons Trails. From easy to moderate to advanced, the experience is enchanting and a great way to see our desert in an up close, intimate way.

5. Take in a show at the Fabulous Palm Springs Follies. At any age, this show will inspire you and put a spring in your step. It’s well worth the already reasonable ticket prices, and is very entertaining.

6. Try your luck at the Spa Resort Casino. A few slots, a game or two of blackjack are a fun way to whittle away a few hours over a cocktail.

7. Visit the Palm Springs Art Museum to see an interesting collection of a wide range of art exhibits. Your date will be impressed by your sensitivity to culture. You might even see something that inspires passion while exploring the many rooms.

8. Explore the Palm Springs Walk of Stars and the Forever Marilyn statue. A nice, relaxing stroll through the village of Palm Springs is a perfect way to window shop, hold hands and inspire conversation about the many movie stars, celebrities, singers and public figures who have lived here or spent time in Palm Springs. You will want a photo by the Marilyn Monroe statue, and conveniently, there is a Starbucks and Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf right across the street from her, with perfect vantage points for photo-taking.

10. Golf, Tennis, Off-Roading or Bicycles: Show your sporty side with some time on the links, the courts or in

the sand. Palm Springs has numerous options for these, depending on your interest.  Another great alternative for couples is to rent bicycles for a day and explore the city’s hidden neighborhoods. Its a great couples activity and is inexpensive too.
