Sightseeing in Palm Springs

An unforgettable day in the Palm Springs desert sightseeing

Enjoy Palm Springs sightseeing while at Desert Sun.

The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens - see rare and endangered desert animals and African wildlife. Visitors who come to The Living Desert in the early morning are in for some delightful surprises! In the cool of the morning, most of the animals on exhibit are at their peak activity.


Joshua Tree National Park - where the Colorado and Mojave Deserts meet, is a stunning display of ecological and geological wonder, with giant twisted Joshua trees, cacti and desert fan palm surrounded by giant rock formations. (about 1 hour from resort)

Palm Springs Windmills - When arriving into the Palm Springs area, the towering giant windmills are hard to miss. This is the efficient energy source that the Department of Energy anticipates may supply as much as 20% of US electricity by the year 2030, and why this Desert area location was chosen for a high concentration of active windmills. (approx. 15 min. from resort on the way to outlet malls & Morongo Casino)
