Girls Weekend Guide to Palm Springs

Palm Springs…is there anything better?! Not only is Palm Springs the perfect place for a girl’s weekend getaway, it literally is one of the coolest places in California (in my honest opinion). The relaxing atmosphere, desert oasis vibes, and endless activities day and night always have me itching to go back. I hope you enjoy these travel tips and this girl’s weekend guide to Palm Springs!

I’ve actually tried to make it a point to head to Palm Springs or Palm Desert once a year for some chill-out time because I always feel so relaxed after I go. This time I went with my roommate for a girl’s weekend and we ended up having the best girls’ trip ever.

While we’re at it, let’s be friends on Instagram and Tiktok!

Here’s the Ultimate Girl’s Weekend Guide to Palm Springs!

  • The Ace Hotel – The Ace Hotel has a quirky, hipster, and loungy vibe. I especially loved the pool and Amigo Room bar! Book a Room | Read TripAdvisor Reviews
  • Kimpton Rowan – This resort hotel is situated in the heart of downtown Palm Springs with a great location for bar hopping and checking out the restaurants of Palm Springs. They also have a rooftop pool and bar with beautiful views. Book a Room | Read TripAdvisor
  • Airbnb – You can’t go wrong with finding a place that has a pool all to yourself on the cheap! We did this and it was great to have our own pool to lounge during the day.

Where to Eat

Brunch:

  • Norma’s at the Parker Palm Springs – This spot has awesome decor and an amazing selection of brunch foods.
  • Cheeky’s – Be prepped for a wait, but it’s so so worth it! I still crave it. Make sure to order one of their bacon flights or french toast!
  • Rooftop at Tommy Bahamas (in Palm Desert on El Paseo drive) – This is a classic spot that’s great for lunch on the roof after shopping on El Paseo.

Getting Around

We rented an $18 a day car from Alamo (mainly so we could drive to Palm Desert and Joshua Tree). We also took Uber’s (get $5 off your first 2 rides with this code) out when we went out on the town!

Have you ever visited Palm Springs or had a girl’s weekend there? If you have, what am I missing on my list?
