Palm Desert, California: A Weekend Getaway.

A few days after I returned to L.A. I was invited to go to Palm Desert by my friend. I promised myself that I would slow things down with traveling this year. Although, being unemployed provides a lot of time in my hands that it was hard not to jump at the chance for a good weekend getaway. Palm Desert, is literally in the desert with tons of palm trees that you will find lined on the streets. It’s about 2-3 hours drive from L.A. (depending on traffic) but, most of you probably know this town for Coachella. Many young party-goers flock here during the summer for the festival. palm-desert-2-of-7
However, Cari and I came in the middle of the winter and I don’t mind it one bit. I actually prefer enjoying a 70F  weather compare to a hot 100F in the middle of the summer. No, thank you! palm desert (3 of 7).jpgSo what’s there to do in this town? Well, a lot of retiree’s come to live here and most have a vacation home. Therefore, the town is generally quiet with the exception of the Coachella month. Its home to, I believe, two of the most expensive golf courses and has a city center lined with shops, boutiques, restaurants or cafe’s.

Upon our arrival, Cari and I opted for a quick bite to eat at California Pizza Kitchen. We weren’t too hungry but, we ordered the flat bread pizza that was delicious!
