Nestled in the desert of Southern California, Palm Springs is a mid-century modern oasis within easy reach of Los Angeles. As the name suggests, the city is fringed with palm trees and natural hot springs believed to have healing properties and has made the city somewhat of a spa retreat. This coupled with the region’s year-round warm temperatures makes Palm Springs a popular residence for retirees and those relocating to warmer climes. Your pooch will love desert dog walks including the 17 miles of Mission Creek Preserve exploring the Coachella Valley or cooling off in Whitewater Canyon which also offers incredible views of the surrounding mountain scenery. Just be careful your four-legged friend doesn’t sniff too close to the spiky cacti native to the landscape.
A few hours’ drive away is Mojave National Park – home to the largest Joshua Tree forest and is a national park that allows dogs to hike with you provided they are kept on a leash. Hiking and exploring the spectacular landscapes is a popular activity in Palm Springs so carefully consider the time of year you visit so that you avoid the extreme summer heat for you and your pooch. Although you can pick up special doggy sun protection at one of the local downtown stores! Here are the top 15 dog-friendly hotels in Palm Springs…
