Creative Date Ideas in Palm Springs

Whether you’re planning a first date or you’re looking to spend some quality time with your long-term partner, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to round up some of Palm Spring’s unique date ideas.

Palm Springs Aerial Tramway:

Get a view from above Palm Springs and Coachella Valley with a ride up the Palm Springs Aerial Tram. As you ascend Southern California’s second highest mountain range the tram rotates offering sweeping 360-degree views of the desert floor. At the peak, there are restaurants, observation decks and even a natural history museum. For the adventuresome couples you can explore the 50 plus miles of hiking trails, go cross country skiing or even take in some snowshoeing (weather permitting). www.pstramway.com

 

Purple Room Supper Club

You’ll be transported back to the 60s while enjoying live jazz music on the weekdays and internationally acclaimed entertainers performing shows during the weekends. Make sure to plan ahead as spots fill up quickly. www.purpleroompalmsprings.com

 

Tahquitz Canyon:

Looking to create a memorable experience for a first date? Then grab your hiking boots and trek to Tahquitz Canyon. The canyons can be found on the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians reservation. The Cahuilla Indians settled there thousand of years ago as can be seen by the rock art, ancient irrigation systems, house pits, native wildlife and plants that still inhabit this area. In addition, there is a 60-foot waterfall and a visitor center that has educational and cultural exhibits. www.tahquitzcanyon.com
