cool getaway in southern california

Very interesting scenic trip. Great area on top of the mountain to wander around or hike.When purchasing the ride and dine ticket you will get dinner at the top. Food is okay.

You need to take this tram to witness the beauty from high up. I am a little nervous of heights, but quickly settled down with the smooth ride.

A definite must do! My husband and I visited for my birthday. The tram rides up and down the mountain were a little nerve wracking (it sways a bit) but the views from the top are totally worth it!!

Definitely worth it. A great escape from the humid heat but also a spectacular look into the diversity of the area. The twilight ride was the best choice in my opinion. If I were to go back, I'd do some of the hikes up there. We were told not to waste our money on the restaurants up top so we... More

Came here while staying in town overnight. Bear in mind it's a fair way up from the main road. We used Uber to get up and had to hike to the security lodge to get signal to book another uber to get back down.

Not a big review writer here, but I like to acknowledge when I think an employee deserves public recognition. My husband and I, and our three children, went to the Tramway this evening, and I was absolutely terrified of the height of it and was freaking out. When we boarded the Tram, and I was 89% into pass-out mode, Gil... More

You won't be disappointed the views are amazing, the trails for hiking are fairly easy, the views are unbelievably beautiful, on a clear day you can see for miles and miles. An amazing engineering wonder. The restaurant is ok considering its location.

if your in palm Springs the tramway is one of the places you should go their rates are fair price you get to enjoy the scenery while going up since the tram rotates at 360 also while up there you can go on a hike and much cooler than downtown.

If you want to beat the heat in Palm Springs, I would definitely recommend taking a day trip up the mountain. The Palm Springs aerial tramway is something new and exciting to experience with your whole family. Make sure you hold your little ones hands and try not to look down. Unless of course, you don't want to miss the... More
