Desert City: Escape to Palm Springs

california-2“Desert City: Escape to Palm Springs” host Zay Harding travels just two hours down the road to this inland oasis city popular with Angelinos looking to escape the big smoke for the weekend.

Many choose to stay in one of the city’s modernist boutique hotels which have become a signature architectural feature. The desert city is also home to more than 100 golf courses.

Outside the city, Zay visits one of the world’s biggest wind farms, hikes in remote desert canyons and visits the iconic Joshua Tree National Park.
