Discover Desert Hot Springs

Nestled in Coachella Valley, near natural wonders such as Big Morongo Canyon Preserve and the Joshua Tree National Park, Desert Hot Springs enthralls travelers with its blend of luxurious day spas, quaint dining spots, and fascinating cultural experiences. Whether you plan to hit the area's outlet malls, tick area attractions such as the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway off your bucket list, or simply settle back and let the city's natural mineral spring water work its magic, Desert Hot Springs vacation rentals offer a relaxing base for your stay. You'll find that many rentals come with their own pool, too.

Things to do

Culture and fun near Desert Hot Springs

You'll find most Desert Hot Springs vacation rentals just a mineral pool or 2 away from a wide variety of cultural hotspots, not least Cabot's Pueblo Museum and the Agua Caliente Cultural Museum. If you're enjoying a family break and looking for a way to entertain the kids, the Children's Discovery Museum of the Desert, with activities such as Brain Buster Road and MakerSpace, fits the bill perfectly. Older kids may want to skip the museum and head straight for the thrills and spills at Wet ‘n' Wild Palm Springs. Either way, parents are looking at some serious brownie points.

Activities

Indulge in Desert Hot Springs' spas

While nearby outlet malls such as Cabazon Outlets and Desert Hills Premium Outlets will have retail enthusiasts chomping at the bit, the first thing on most traveler's to-do list is to head to one of the city's plush day spas. Along with the obligatory mineral pools and an aromatic garden boasting views of the San Jacinto mountains, Hacienda Hot Springs offers plant-based spa treatments, an outdoor rainforest shower, and a traditional Finnish rock sauna, although if you're traveling with your other half, you might choose to ramp up the romance with a couple's massage at the clothing-optional Living Waters Spa.

Weather

Spring into action in Desert Hot Springs

Peak season in Desert Hot Springs is undoubtedly between January and April. These spring months serve up the most hospitable temperatures, as well as lively events such as the Coachella festival and Tour de Palm Springs. Remember, though, that attractions can be crowded and rental rates are at their highest, not that you'll care as you let the city's mineral water soak away your stresses. During the summer months of May through September, the city empties out, mainly because temperatures reach 3 digits. If you're planning a getaway between October and December, the Props & Hops Craft Beer Festival is a must-attend event.

Natural features

Natural delights near Desert Hot Springs

A stay in a Desert Hot Springs vacation rental places a world of outdoor adventure on your doorstep. If you can drag yourself away from the spas, the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens serves up the chance to feed giraffes amid the park's 1,200 protected acres. Prefer your surroundings a little wilder?  The Joshua Tree National Park offers off-road adventures through Pleasant Valley, Instagram-worthy selfie opportunities at Skull Rock, and some of the best stargazing in the world. In winter, the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway whisks riders to the pristine alpine playground of the Mt. San Jacinto State Park.
