Coined “California’s Spa City”, you can bet that Desert Hot Springs has everything you need for a relaxing vacation. Located just north of Palm Springs in the Coachella Valley, this city is one of the fastest growing communities in Southern California and is just minutes away from hiking, golf courses and shopping, and features world-class aps and resorts. If you’ve been looking for a place to de-stress and pamper yourself, Desert Hot Springs might just be the place for you!
Start your vacation with a little shopping at the nearby Cabazon Outlets or Desert Hill Premium Outlets. At Cabazon, you’ll be able to peruse shoes at the Adidas outlet, camping gear at Columbia, and even kitchenware at Le Creuset. Don’t miss the Puma or Tommy Bahama outlets where you can get all your vacation attire for a low price. At the much bigger Desert Hill Premium Outlets, you can shop the day away at the BCBG factory store, Banana Republic Factory Outlet, the Asics store, and so much more. With over 100 stores and factory outlets to explore, you might want to plan on spending the whole day at this place!
Once you’ve shopped ‘til you drop, you’ll most likely need some R&R. Head over to the Aqua Soleil Hotel and Mineral Water Spa where you can take a dip in their mineral pool for a mere $15. They also have spa packages if you’re feeling like you want to treat yourself. For a lower-priced spa, check out the Desert Hot Springs Spa Hotel. You can swim in their mineral pool for around $5-$7 and use the co-ed sauna as you please. A few of the spas in town are clothing-optional, like Anahata Springs Spa and Retreat and Living Waters, so make sure you know beforehand when deciding which of the more than 10 spas you’ll be visiting.
For the golf-lover, try Mission Lakes Country Club. Located in Desert Hot Springs, this well-manicured course features 18 holes, a clubhouse saltwater pool, and, arguably, the toughest final 4 holes in the desert. The club also includes warm up cages and pitching/putting practice areas and is open to the public. Hidden Sands Golf and Racquet Club is another course in town, and it offers incredible views of the surrounding San Jacinto Mountains and San Gorgonio Wilderness.
The outdoor-enthusiast will love how close Joshua Tree National Park is to Desert Hot Springs. Take a 35-minute drive out of town and head to this truly unique park where rock climbers, campers, and hikers flock. Trees of all different shapes and sizes make this place look like the pages of a Dr. Seuss book. The monzogranite rock formations make rock climbing accessible, as the surface resembles a skateboard’s grip tape. Explore the hiking trails, including one that takes you to an abandoned gold mill, but make sure to start your hiking early. The temperatures in the desert can reach scorching levels, so either start out early, or make sure you’re prepared with plenty of water, sunscreen, and a hat.
