The Palm Springs (PSP) airport is located just 5 minutes from downtown Palm Springs. Because the Palm Springs airport has fewer flights than nearby metro airports such as Los Angeles airport (LAX), Ontario California (ONT) and San Diego (SAN) these airports are also convenient options for air travel to the Palm Springs area.
Flying to Palm Springs International Airport you can choose from the following carriers, most of which are offered on a seasonal basis only: WestJet, United, United Express, Virgin America, Sun Country Airlines, Frontier Airlines, American Eagle, Delta, JetBlue, Allegiant Air, Air Canada, and Alaska Airlines.
JetBlue currently offers direct flights from JFK to PSP (Palm Springs) for the month of October.

Joshua Tree National Park
This national park is open year-round and covers approximately 800,000 acres, making Joshua Tree a true desert wilderness. The park is just a few hours outside Los Angeles, San Diego, and Palm Springs. Enjoy hiking, camping, photography, rock climbing, or simply enjoy the serene desert scenery.
Palm Springs Windmill Tours
This tour takes you behind the windmill farm fences to see up-close this iconic part of Palm Springs.
In the middle of the Mojave Desert, just above Palm Springs and near Joshua Tree, Pioneertown was built as a film set in the 1940s by Hollywood moviemakers. Its main feature is a four-block-long “Mane Street” with spaghetti western-style edifices built at two-thirds scale, set back on a wide, dusty road. Pioneertown was built to double as a real, living town. Just one that looks like it’s located in the Wild West. Make sure you check out Pappy and Harriet's Pioneertown Palace (open Thurs-Mon). Nearby you will also find the largely undiscovered Pioneertown Mountain Preserve (5 min) & revered brunch restaurant, La Copine Kitchen.
OUR FAVORITE RESTURANTS
One block from the Avalon Hotel, Melvyn’s has hosted a string of famous guests—most notably Frank Sinatra, who held court from corner booth #53 whenever he was in town. The Rat Pack spirit endures here. Old standards play nightly at the piano bar, while tuxedo-clad waiters serve up Manhattans and martinis. Melvyn’s was and still is one of few places in Palm Springs with a dress code—it once famously turned away Steve McQueen and Ali McGraw for showing up in motorcycle ensembles—although diners are now allowed to dress more casually if they’re eating under the striped awning of the patio. Call ahead to reserve a table (yes, Sinatra’s booth is still available) and then give in to nostalgia. Ask maître d’ Brian Ellis, hired when Melvyn’s first opened, about the night the FBI stopped by.
Truss and Twine
Truss & Twine is the epitome of Palm Springs' sophisticated desert vibe. An atmospheric bar located in the historic El Paseo building on North Palm Canyon Drive, is great spot for snacks and a cocktail.
A secret pathway leads to this stylish wine bar in Parker Palm Springs dishing up an eclectic menu of small plates like Santa Barbara sea urchin escabèche and foie gras macarons to pair with its global vintages.
Mr. Lyons Steakhouse
Upscale, retro-style spot serving hand-cut meats, steakhouse staples & classic cocktails. Green velvet banquettes, dark woods and white tablecloths set a sleek, retro scene.
Speakeasy bar with a vintage vibe is hidden behind Mr. Lyons and specializes in craft libations with an outdoor patio with bocce ball courts.
Rooster and the Pig
This Downtown nook dishes up a daily changing selection of shareable Vietnamese fusion plates supplemented by craft beer and sake in a cozy newspaper-lined space with a dog-friendly patio.
