suggestions for a Saturday evening

We are arriving in Palm Springs at suppertime and leaving the next morning. We are staying near downtown and will have a car. Any suggestions on how to spend the evening? Including a restaurant. We are budget travellers. We like to walk. An interesting walk perhaps people watching. Or sitting at a patio watching the action. Looking at small shops that are not real expensive but unique.

The most popular restaurants will book up a week in advance.

Strolling Palm Canyon Dr in downtown Palm Springs will entertain you for sure. There are dozens of restaurants. You can look at menus on most of the front entry areas. And you can inquire about seating if you like it.

Saturday evening will be booked in advance for some restaurants, but there are plenty of places that take walk-in's, with a little wait. There is a Ruby's Diner on Palm Canyon Dr, Las Casules Mexican restaurant with large patio, Mariachi music that is fun. Or just walk down the street to spot something that interests you.

Lots of T-shirt and souvenir shops that are not real expensive, and others that are fun to browse. Great Shakes has wonderful ice cream desserts.

Depending on exactly what time you roll into town, you could take the tram to the top of the mountain,watch the lights of the valley come on below, then head into town for dinner.

Yep, lots of restaurants with people watching patios.

I like Zin American and Brickworks (upstairs)

If your arrival day happens to be a Thursday, there is Village Fest. http://villagefest.org/
