What contrast. Just over 100 degrees Fahrenheit on valley floor in Palm Springs and just over 70 degrees when we got off the aerial tramway at the summit. The tramway is a stunning feat of engineering and the trip up the mountain was thrilling. The views from the top across the Coachella Valley were spectacular and we would gladly have spent many more hours up there. A must do attraction which is also great value at about $23 for an adult.

I had heard about the tramway experience in Palm Springs, but wasn't prepared for the amazing view. The trip to the top is in an open car with a 360 degree view. As you ascend, the Palm Springs urban area comes into view quickly. Then as you glance to your left, the other-worldly presence of 7800 windmill turbines draws your attention. Lastly, the beautiful mountains provide a fitting frame for the whole scene.
The visitor's center at the top was very interesting as well. Great walkways to view the surrounding area, a very well-stocked gift shop, and a restaurant are there to attract you.
Definitely worth the time.

This is a trip well worth doing and gives a completely different perspective on Palm Springs and is not expensive.
