These guys know their Palm Springs and how to sell it. They will offer ideas on what to see and do. There's also lots of pamphlets and coupons available inside. The Agua Caliente representative was helpful as well. I learned there about the PS Modern app for my phone and have really put that to use.

The intent of this place is just to sell goods and souvenirs to provide income for the City of Palm Spring. Not a place for information but a trap to sell goods. You might as well go to the AAA and the public library for information or the sourrounding shops for goodies. I went there to ask information about how... More

The self-guided driving tour of celebrity homes is a great way to spend a couple of hours. For about five dollars you can see (or almost see behind the huge hedges) 60+ homes. The map is good, but co-pilot is important so you don't miss the turns. The map is not to scale, but the addresses will keep you on... More

This is the place to go first if you are going to be out in town. They give you a great street map that has a lot of information on it. They also have some souvenirs, T's and sweatshirts.

The architecture of the building, the iconic Palm Springs sign, the tiny but wonderful Agua Caliente Indian Museum, and of course all the information on Palm Springs make this well worth the stop. It is the first building you come to on Palm Canyon Drive, and is at the entrance to the Tramway road. Don't miss the Palm Springs sign... More

Nice facility with pamphlets and info, but definitely strike up a conversation with the people who work there. They are a wealth of knowledge and make great suggestions. They talked us into taking the Aerial Tram ride and shared that it was free the month of July for military members. My husband is a disabled vet, so he rode for... More

Apart from the architecture of the building itself, its not a tourist attraction of itself. However, if you're visiting for the first time then its definitely worth a stop and a photo of the Palm Springs sign with the mountain background - this is a 2 minute walk from the Visitor Center car park. The Center is full of helpful... More

As an east coast guy I view the west coast as friendly and welcoming. We walked to the Palm Spring visitor center and we were surprised. One guide at the counter just ignored us while continuing working on her computer and the other just counted the number of maps we took (free printouts) saying” I think your wife took one... More

The visitor center is a great idea if you're new to the Palm Springs area. Although not very big, the staff is very helpful and has numerous free brochures available about the Palm Springs happenings. Many souvenir items available - be sure to pick up the celebrity homes map ($5) and architecture map available behind the counter. The building is... More
