A Kid-Friendly Vacation In Palm Desert
With its top class golf courses, restaurants and day spas, there are plenty of things to keep the adults occupied on their trip to Palm Desert, but what about the kids?
Palm Desert is a very child-friendly community, and there is much you can do on your family vacation to excite and amaze your children. Here is only a short list for you to consider when planning your family vacation to Palm Desert:
Living Desert Zoo & Gardens
Children young and old will enjoy meeting the animals at the Living Desert Zoo & Gardens of Palm Desert, which is a zoo and botanical garden that focuses on desert plants and wildlife. The zoo includes giraffes, wolves, mountain lions, cheetahs, birds of prey and more. The zoo also offers tours and special vacation packages. The zoo recommends coming early in the morning when the animals are most active and dressing appropriately for hot weather during the day.
Palm Desert Aquatic Center
To beat the heat, take the kids to the Palm Desert Aquatic Center, which boasts an eight-acre facility that includes a 12,000 square foot pool, water slides, a splash park and an Olympic size swimming pool so adults can get some exercise too. Bring plenty of sunscreen and let the kids loose to enjoy the summer with lots of water fun.
The MaCallum Theater
Older children may be interested in one of the shows taking place at the MaCallum Theater, which hosts plays, concerts, and more. Check out the theater’s schedule in advance of your arrival to see if they are offering kid-friendly plays or performances that your children might enjoy. It’s never too early to introduce your children to the arts, and with all the world-class performers who visit MaCallum Theater, this would be a great place to start.
Palm Springs Aerial Tramway
The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway is the world’s largest rotating tramcar. Your children will delight in the 10-minute ride from Valley Station to Mountain Station where they will be greeted with beautiful views of the pristine wilderness below. Adults too will enjoy this unique experience. Bring your cameras!
Palm Desert also includes plenty of kid-friendly dining options, including a wide variety of fast food restaurants and well-known sit-down places like Applebees and Buffalo Wild Wings.
