Palm Springs

Palm Springs news and information.  Stories range from crime to lifestyle to events to business to tourism and travel.  Palm Springs is one of the preeminent cities in the Coachella Valley which encompasses the Riverside County’s desert region about 60 miles east of Riverside, San Bernardino and the Inland Empire and a little more than 100 miles west of Los Angeles and Orange County.

The city of Palm Springs has a population of over 44,000 according to the most recent census.  It is best known for being a tourist destination for weekend travelers, festival goers, and serving as a longer-stay destination for oh so many slow driving snow birds from the northwest portion of the United States and Canada.

Stories that appear in this section have been posted by Coachella Valley locals who live and know the desert area.
