Get Your Arts and Culture On: A short stroll from Korakia rests the Palm Spring Art Museum (www.psmuseum.org). The museum hosts a myriad of exhibits, workshops and lectures while also offering free summer film screenings. Another nearby destination is The Living Desert (www.livingdesert.org). This wildlife and botanical garden gives insight to the natural flora of the desert region along with regional animals of all species. The Living Desert is a great opportunity for all ages to learn more about desert habitat and engage in hands-on activities.
Why You’ve Gotta Come Back: Whether it be golf, the Aerial Tramway (www.pstramway.com), nightclubs, hot-air balloon rides, casinos or the vast choices of other things uniquely Palm Springs, there are a myriad of reasons to return on any given weekend. Here are a few notable events happening throughout the year in the region; the Coachella Music and Arts Festival (www.coachella.com), Stagecoach Music Festival (www.stagecoachfestival.com), Date Festival (www.datefest.org), Palm Springs Film Festival (www.psfilmfest.org) and weekly entertainment at nearby casinos.
