#TravelTuesday || Palm Springs

Tuesday, December 22, 2015

W E L L  H E L L O  P A L M  S P R I N G S !! I seriously haven't been to Palm Springs since I was 21 but stayed at a girlfriends family house so I never really experienced the little town. The people were so nice and although I couldn't see myself living there, it definitely has an addicting charm!

If your feeling fancy:

> Avalon Hotel (aka used to be Viceroy Hotel) $$$-somewhat family friendly with a "kids allowed" pool but not a kiddie pool. This is perfect for the couples getaway that want to stay up late and have drinks around the fire. 
> The Parker Palm Springs $$$$- If you want to feel like you've been transported back to a time of Audrey Hepburn and Elvis Presley. This place has a swanky ambiance that will give your eyes a treat.
> Ace Hotel & Swim Club $$- This hotel is more of a hip scene with a bohemian artsy decor and some family friendly options as well as a dog park in the back!


> The Riviera Palm Springs $$- family friendly with a couple pool options and beautiful cabanas with loads of amenities. If you fancy some alone time, they also have a kids club with wii's and xbox to keep the little ones entertained.
> The Quinta Resort $$$$- Probably the biggest and most family friendly hotel in Palm Springs. It has 43 pools, 53 spas and five golf courses. As if that's not enough, they have a day camp and night care for parents, as well as pet friendly options.
> Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort $$$- So I really want to stay here next time just for this pool area they call Splashtopia, amazing right? With waterslides, jacuzzis, a lazy river and a sandy beach, this is as kid friendly as it gets!

> Las Casuelas Terraza- Very family friendly, casual restaurant on one side and more of a loud, social vibe on the other. There's only two really good Mexican restaurants in Palm Springs and this is one of them!
> Rio Azul Mexican Bar- The second best Mexican restaurant. Not family friendly, known for their margaritas and their Drag Brunch! 
> Workshop Kitchen & Bar- Farm to table style restaurant, if you're feeling a little fancy. Beautiful ambiance.
> The Farm- A hidden little place thats surrounded by trees and flowers, farm to table, everything has a unique twist to it. Even the mimosas! 
> Great Shakes- Of course last but not least DESSERT! you have to make a stop at Great Shakes if you come to Palm Springs. The shakes are rich but the little donut and yummy ingredients are worth it, even if you can only handle a few sips. Have to thank my bestie for that recommendation!

First time in the pool,  3 months and loving it!
annnd my heart burst
Did you know that red doors are suppose to mean that your welcome to stay there? cool history fact lol
My big girl...

For our first family vacation this was perfect and not too far away from home. Although I wish I could've hung by the pool with a cocktail, something about watching your baby experience new surroundings and try new things really is priceless. Cheers to drinking lots of apple juice, stealing bites of baby food and checking for boogie monsters!! Can't wait!
