The Old-School Allure of Palm Springs Is Drawing a Younger Crowd


Back in the day, Frank and the boys played here until the sun came up. Today everyone is still playing, but with a new twist… everyone is getting younger. Millennials, for whom everything old is hip again, are digging Palm Springs in all its sherbet-colored rainbow glory. Events and entertainment venues in Palm Springs  are fun and flamboyant – from the hilarious Carnival Caberet at Oscars in downtown Palm Springs, to a night of sass, song and razzle-dazzle at the Ace Hotel’s Bingo Nights, to the best of Latin pop on Sundays at the Spa Resort Casino.

Events like Modernism Week Fall Preview and Greater Palm Springs Pride kick off the fall season with colorful people, gorgeous weather and swimming pools still warm enough to swim in. Charming tiny boutique hotels and inns dot the landscape in and around Palm Canyon Drive , making it possible to actually stay in a place where cars aren’t necessary once you arrive. Downtown and Uptown are close by to stroll the street, and a free BUZZ trolley takes visitors around the city for dinner and drinks (hence the name) Thursday – Sundays. Don’t forget the ever-popular Thursday night VillageFest, where Palm Canyon Drive becomes and evening outdoor festival in the heart of downtown. Charming indeed! For more information, go to
