Ok. So August can be a little toasty in Palm Springs. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t have a good time.

Here are eight ways to enjoy the end of summer in Palm Springs.

1Chill in the Pool

Sometimes, the best way to beat the heat is with a nice, cold beverage enjoyed while floating in the pool – and one of the great things about summer in the Coachella Valley is you can enjoy the incredible resort pools and pool parties without being a guest of the hotel!

2Escape to the Mountains

Cooler temps, miles and miles of hiking trails, and some of the most amazing views you have ever seen await you at the top of the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. It only takes 10 minutes to get up and down the mountain, but the memories are forever.

3Enjoy Some Amazing Deals

Palm Springs is home to some incredible deals in August – including the best Happy Hour you are going to find in Palm Springs at The Riviera, which includes specials on beer, 50% off well and house wine, and some great discounts on some tasty grub.

4Go to Comic Con

During the busy season, it can be tough to even get an appointment for a massage.  But during the summer, not only can you get an appointment, you can get a seriously great deal on spa treatments and massages like Azure Spa and Salon, who is offering some great deals on massages every Tuesday and facials every Thursday.

6Party at Splash House


Splash House returns for the second weekend of 2017 August 11-13.  Spread across three Palm Springs resorts, including the iconic multi-pool Riviera Resort, its the biggest pool party of the year in the Coachella Valley.
