Best things to do in Palm Springs California - Adriane Berg - Incredible views while hiking

Incredible views while hiking.

I’m really excited to interview Adriane Berg of The Ageless Traveler about Palm Springs, California. Adriane’s tips for the best things to do in Palm Springs are awesome because she began investing in Palm Springs real estate years ago, then moved here to be close to her grandchildren. She loves the weather, entertainment and friendly, laid-back vibe. And the healthy aging lifestyle is second to none.

Getting around Palm Springs

The local airport is Palm Springs International Airport (PSP), which is about a five-minute drive to downtown. Use our Expedia tool below to find flight, hotel, and rental car options.


Adriane says that if you’re staying downtown, you won’t need a car. However, if you want to travel outside of Palm Springs to some of the nearby parks, you will need a car. For the best rental car offers, visit Avis, Budget, or Hertz.

Palm Springs also has an excellent bus system called SunLine Transit Agency. The bus can transport passengers within Palm Springs and to nearby towns.

Uber and Lyft are excellent ways to get around.
