It is always fun to shop on Palm Canyon. The shops are great for window shopping as well as shopping.

Nice to have so many options within short driving distance from our stay in Palm Springs. Went specifically to check out the shops on El Paseo as it was recommended to us. Just a nice, quiet area with great little shops & restaurants, unique to the area.
