“Fun area filled with outdoor cafes and restaurants”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

We enjoyed walking along Palm Canyon Drive during our 3 day stay in Palm Springs. One gets a sense of what life was like in the 50's and 60's, when I used to spend Easter vacations. But the big hotels are gone and now mainly restaurants remain along the drive. It is fun to stop for a drink or a meal and take in the passers by. The weather always seems to cooperate so you can enjoy sitting outside at one of the many cafes.

Palm Canyon Drive has something for everyone, food, shopping, gifts. Friendly locals and a safe feeling about it.

“Go to VillageFest on Thursday Nights”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

This street has definitely seen much better days! Very depressing in the daylight. A ghost town with lots and lots of empty stores and businesses. Go to VillageFest on Thursday nights, there are lots of people and things to see.
