FASCINATING!

Went to this attraction with friends who have been living in Palm Springs for six months so it was new to all of us. It was one of the highlights of the trip. We had a great time!

Never imaging driving in the I-10 I can see so much windmill in just one day, is really impress at the point you can lost the view of the windmill in the valley. If you go to the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway you can see the Farm from the top.

It’s not the most exciting adventure or attraction you’ll see but it is nonetheless educational. I was taking my wife through another tour of Southern California, and we had been to California Disney. There you’ll go on a trip where you fly around all the highlights of California and she saw the windmills on that ride and wanted to see... More

I've ridden through the Wind Farm about 5 times without any problems but in 2014 I rode though it with my wife. the conditions were quite different from the previous times I had ridden through. It was so windy that both of us could not stay in our lanes and many times we were blown into the desert. Fortunately the... More

We have taken 2 buss tours in Palm Springs and they took us on a tour of the windmill. It is interesting how the technologies over the years have changed.

Every time I see the windmills I know I am officially in Palm Springs. It's such a beautiful site and I always capture it with a photo. It's breathtaking and a PS staple.

This was one of my favorite things in Palm Springs. It's really cool, very different from what we have in NYC. Definitely recommend.

Just a bunch of wind turbines wrecking the scenery. What is the attraction. It is like a tour of the dump. Necessary but not something you look forward to. At least they are safe and don't smell. That deserves 2 stars I guess.

There is nothing spectacular here other than large windmills in the desert. The view from the road is just average but its quite a view from up the mountains.

What an amazing sight to see in person! You will not believe how large this turbines can be. My husband and i are just fascinated with the technology and to see them in person is impressive. We wish we had more time to take the tour but just had time to stop for a view pictures.
