The year-round sun and warmth of Southern California make it an ideal destination any time of year, especially in the summer. Now that the kids are out of school and ready for a summer of fun, make plans to take a break in beautiful Palm Springs. There are plenty of family-friendly things to do that welcome all ages for summer in Palm Springs.

Escape Room Palm Springs

The escape room craze of the last several years has made its way to Palm Springs. The largest escape room games in Southern California are located right in Palm Springs! You have your choice of six rooms with varying degrees of difficulty and a number of players to solve. Solve the clues and break out of the room within 60 minutes to win. There are themes like Bank Heist, Vampire’s Lair, Merlin’s Magic School, and others. Ask about age requirements or other accommodations before booking.

Palm Springs Walk of Stars

A Southern California must-see on many travelers’ to-do lists is the Hollywood Walk of Fame, where you can seek out the stars of your favorite movie and TV personalities. But you can save the two-hour trip and admire the stars in Palm Springs. The walk spans Palm Canyon Drive, Tahquitz Canyon Way, and Museum Drive in downtown Palm Springs. See the stars of well-known celebrities like Clark Gable, Bob Hope, Shirley Temple, and Elizabeth Taylor. Even presidents like Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford have been honored. Kids will love looking for a favorite celebrity or TV show that’s been honored. The first stars were installed in 1992, and the most recent star was installed at the beginning of 2022. This is definitely one of the most exciting things to do during summer in Palm Springs!

Moorten Botanical Gardens and Cactarium

Named for its founders, Patricia and Chester “Cactus Slim” Moorten, the Palm Springs garden has over 3,000 examples of desert cacti and other desert plants, all grouped by geographic regions including Arizona, California, Colorado, the Mojave and Sonora deserts, and Texas. See species from other parts of the globe like South Africa and South America, too. Patricia and Slim have also designed and installed landscapes for Frank Sinatra, and have consulted with Disney on their design for the western-themed Frontierland and the park that eventually became Disneyland.

Palm Springs Aerial Tramway

Palm Springs is home to the world’s largest rotating tram car. The 80-passenger cars make their way along the breathtaking cliffs of Chino Canyon from the Valley Station to the Mountain Station – giving you a breathtaking elevation change of nearly 6,000 feet in just ten minutes. At the top, there are more beautiful views, as well as a restaurant and cafe, gift shop, nature exhibits, educational documentary theaters, and over 50 miles of hiking trails in the Mt. San Jacinto State Park Wilderness area for the whole family to enjoy.


The mountains and trails surrounding Palm Springs make for a refreshing hike full of picturesque views. Lace-up your hiking boots, grab your camera and sun protection, and head out. There are trails for beginners and kids as well as more challenging paths for seasoned adventurers. Suggested hikes include Indian Canyons, Palm Springs Museum Trail, and the Palm Canyon Trail, but make sure the difficulty level is something everyone can handle before setting out.

Joshua Tree National Park

Two distinct ecosystems came together to form one breathtaking location. The Mojave and Colorado deserts meet and host a variety of plants and animals in the landscape sculpted by strong winds and torrents of rain. Families love to explore the 790,000-acre park, which was originally declared a national monument in 1936 and became a national park in 1994. Head there on your own and wander as you will, or take the self-driving audio tour on the National Park app and make sure to hit must-see locations like Quail Mountain, the highest mountain in the park and the highest point in the Little San Bernadino Mountains, the Desert Queen Mine in the Colorado Desert – a long-lived but now abandoned gold mine, and many other trails and loops where you can get lost for hours at a time.

The small tavern has been around for over 50 years and is known for great beer and wine in a relaxing atmosphere that locals love.

Palm Springs has long been a treasured desert oasis, from its Old Hollywood glamour days to its modern reputation for being a ritzy escape from the city. With its mid-century modern buildings, art galleries, outdoor recreation, amazing dining, and annual cultural festivals, our city draws tourists throughout the year, each seeking their own slice of desert paradise.  It’s never been a more popular vacation destination, and plenty of homeowners are turning their properties into lucrative vacation home rentals when they’re not in use. If you’re not already a local or don’t know the real estate market in Palm Springs, it can be intimidating to know where to start. Luckily the expert realtor Kevin Kaiser can help you turn that glimmer of an idea into a bright reality! Read on to discover all of the fantastic reasons why you should buy vacation homes in Palm Springs California.

It’s Not a Vacation Home—It’s an Investment

Of course, your vacation home will be a place where you can go to get away from it all—but it’s also an investment, as it allows you to make passive income when you’re not using it yourself. In recent years, vacation rentals have been on the rise with the popularity of websites such as Airbnb and Vrbo, and most vacationers will consider a private rental before going with a standard hotel—especially in a luxurious destination like Palm Springs. With the success of the market, many have considered getting into it with their own vacation home rental—but if you’re not already in the business, it can be difficult to know how to go about it.

There are times it takes years to start turning a profit, but our expert services are designed to maximize your income and achieve long-lasting results that are consistent. Kevin Kaiser knows what makes a fantastic vacation property, so before you even purchase your home, Kevin knows what to help you look for.

Own a Piece of Palm Springs

Chances are, you’re looking into buying a vacation home rental in Palm Springs because you have a special affinity for the city, whether it’s tracing the trail of the legendary Rat Pack or hitting up all the best mid-century modern buildings and local art galleries. Palm Springs has proven to be a timeless town, as people still flock to it today, whether it’s for cultural events or large music festivals such as Coachella. Investing in a vacation rental property here is a sound investment if you know how to properly manage and market your property, which for a beginner can understandably be difficult. From purchasing your home to property management, there’s lots of steps involved in making a lucrative rental property, but when you start with Kevin’s knowledge and know-how, you’ll be off to a successful start!

Turn Your Favorite Vacation Destination into a Business

Besides getting to visit your favorite vacation destination, you get to turn your new home into a business and make passive income when you’re away from the property. There are several things that make it easy to get started here in Palm Springs, but there can be complications as well, such as applying for the proper rental permits and getting a loan for a second home. Luckily Luxsy Property Management is well-versed in the process and can help you with those steps once you have purchased your dream vacation home! Once you have, it’s likely that in a few months you can be entering your first rental contracts, with profits going upward from there. Every home is different, but some Palm Springs vacation rentals can earn over $100K a year if they are booked consistently. If you love Palm Springs and have been looking for a vacation rental to make passive income, purchasing a vacation home here is a terrific fit for you!

Get Notified When It’s the Best Time to Buy

Buying real estate can always be difficult, but especially in today’s ever-changing market. It can be hard to decide when to buy, or to learn the ins and outs of local markets to be sure you’re timing things just right. Usually houses go to the market during the summer after the busy spring season, but there are always exceptions to the rule! We offer a convenient free service where we can notify you when there are new options available, getting you to your dream vacation home as quickly as you’d like, as soon as you spot the perfect one.

One of the biggest challenges as a homeowner renting out your own vacation home is how to make your property stand out in a sea of listings on the endless ocean of the internet. Too often, you might find your property isn’t getting any listings, which could be for any number of reasons—poor listing techniques, bad photography, or lack of that “It” factor that will make your property pop out to consumers in a world with too many options. At Luxsy Palm Springs, we have a team of professionals that can lend an expert hand, and make your property stand out—which increases your rental revenue! If you’ve been searching for a way to make your Palm Springs property stand out, these are a few ways to do so!

Change Your Listing’s Look with Professional Photography

Most people don’t want to splurge on a professional photographer, but it truly can make all the difference in your property’s booking volume. Quite often, potential vacation renters won’t give a property a second look if the first photo isn’t showing off the home’s best assets, in a welcoming, inviting way. Handling this all on your own can be quite a challenge to deal with and knowing what to pay for a photographer can be confusing—and you don’t want to spend money and have the photos turn out terrible, making the entire endeavor a waste of time. At Luxsy Palm Springs, we already have trusted photography connections, with results that you can see immediately! Our professional photographs for our homes have already been proven to increase our homes’ booking potential and make your property stand out.

Stage Your Home for a Welcoming and Luxurious Vibe

Many times, homes don’t get booked because they are a little too-homey—whether an updated look is required, or just a few tasteful accent pieces, staging can immensely help your property achieve a higher booking potential. Maybe it’s just a few shelf decorations to make a space pop, or a few items like a throw blanket and rug to help create a cohesive color palette. Either way, adding a slightly polished look to your home will help it get noticed more! In addition to professional photography, our team at Luxsy can help with staging your home to be listed, giving it a professional look that is guaranteed to make potential guests into guests, into returning guests!

List Your Palm Springs Property on Major Rental Websites

Your property can’t be rented if it’s not seen, and these days it’s a must to have your home listed on major rental websites! It’s wise to create listings on Airbnb, VRBO, FlipKey, etc., because it maximizes the number of times your property is seen by potential vacationers, vs trying to rent it out yourself. Or maybe you already have a listing on a major rental website but find you’re not getting the bookings your property deserves—either way, our team of professionals at Luxsy can help you list your property or improve your current listing to increase your returns!

Become Airbnb Superhosts

A significant way to make your property noticeable is to gain the accreditation of being an Airbnb Superhost! Superhosts have been recognized for their exceptional accommodations and service, and often potential guests will search for homes with the “Superhost” filter on, which means that your property won’t be seen unless you have that accreditation. Gaining this recognition can make all the difference in how often your home gets booked. Luckily, at Luxsy we are already Airbnb Superhosts, so when you join our business family your property will also receive that accreditation, meaning more bookings for your vacation home!

Advertise Perks and Amenities That Work for You

Lots of vacation renters will look for things like security features and secure rental contracts, giving them peace of mind as a renter—and the good news is that these things are great for your property too! Install a Ring Doorbell or drawn up clear cut rental contracts. These are attractive features to guests, and at Luxsy we can assist you with getting your vacation home rental ready! From aiding in installing security features, drawing up secure rental contracts, and so much more, it will really give your home that professional quality to make it stand out amongst the dozens of properties in the area. This all contributes to more bookings and protecting the property, both of which are a win for you!

Take Your Vacation Home to the Next Level with Luxsy Palm Springs Property Management

Making your vacation home stand out all on your own can be a difficult task, which is why it’s so helpful to partner with a trusted property management company such as ourselves. When you join us, you’re a valued business partner, and you’ll find your home’s returns increased!

There’s never been a better time than now to choose Luxsy for your property management in the Palm Springs area. If you’d like to set up a free financial analysis, fill out our form and we can provide you with a rental income projection today! If you need more information, give us a call or check out our Vrbo or Flipkey Property management services as well!
