Goes across the valley, many strip malls and major malls, historic sites. Not all jammed up with cars, and plenty to do and eat.

Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe etc all drove down palm canyons drive...so it's a must do. Beautiful mountain vistas. Simple shops to browse and coffee available. Loved the street art especially the Marilyn Monroe sculpture but I hear it has left.

Typical tourist trap shops. It was fun to walk along for exercise and look in the stores, especially to walk off a meal. Several good restaurants along Palm Canyon Dr.

Touristy downtown Palm Springs may not be to everyone's tastes, but a trip down Palm Canyon Drive is worth the effort to see sights you can't see anywhere else.

A great place to spend the evening. Lots of happy hour restaurants and nice little shops. People just stroll and chat, it is lovely. There are lots of little (expensive) shops to wonder in and out of.

Good exercise, people watching and retail therapy.
