Once the old stomping grounds for Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack, Palm Springs is a superb SoCal getaway for a boy’s only holiday with old Hollywood charm. Just a few hours drive or train ride away from Los Angeles or San Diego, this Coachella Valley resort town offers warm days all year-long, gorgeous scenery, boutique shops, booming nightlife, and an edgy art scene.
Palm Springs is more than Coachella. It’s a hip oasis for gay travelers with signature LGBTQ events like Pride in November and Dinah Shore in April, a five-day lesbian music festival. But don’t fret if you can’t make it to any of those events. Palm Springs is still a fun town for gay travelers on any given day. Go hiking in the desert, visit the farmer’s market, check out the latest restaurant openings, or party in the gay bars and clubs along buzzing E. Arenas Road.
