Where to go...

It’s been decades since Slim Aarons immortalized the local elite lounging poolside (that now happens on Instagram), but the town once colonized by the Rat Pack has never been hotter, thanks to a spate of new hotels, thriving culinary and design scenes, and, of course, that weather

Midcentury modern hotel unit featuring exposed wooden beams & large windows

The Lautner Palm Springs is brimming with chic hotels, but for midcentury modern architecture buffs, this recently restored four-unit property in Desert Hot Springs, designed by legendary architect John Lautner, is the place to stay

Workshop Kitchen + Bar The go-to dinner spot. The mesquite grilled pork chop is worth the trip alone

Tent against starry sky next to Joshua tree

Joshua Tree National Park Joshua Tree is unlike anywhere else on earth—and it’s less than an hour’s drive away, making it the perfect morning excursion, or overnight outing for the truly adventurous

What to Pack...
Pink & orange halter bikini, white frayed shorts & more Palm Springs essentials
