We stayed on the less crowded more residential end of Palm Canyon but the downtown section was tourist city. There were a few nice shops and restaurants but most were just cheap junk shops, fast food and dives.

Driving down Palm Canyon Dr you can feel the history, the yesteryears. You see the quaint little hotels that have been there forever. It is a lovely way to spend a few hours.

Shopping is great. A new shopping center is being built on Palm Canyon Drive. Lots of excellent restaurants.We found the locals friendly as well as people visiting from all over the world. It is almost has a village feel to the street and surrounding neighborhoods.

Having gone to Palm Springs for many years it is heartbreaking to see the demise of "class". The downtown area is rife with shops selling the usual tee shirts and Chinese made import trinkets. Gone are the days of exclusive shopping, they have all moved to ElPaseo .

Great place to be a tourist here. Nice (touristy) shops, plenty of great restaurants, beautiful views of the mountains. Worth a trip.
