Palm Springs, California is known for its old Hollywood style and lavish, mid-century homes. With plenty of outdoor activities and luxury experiences, there’s no better place to live like Frank Sinatra and enjoy the warm sun and blue skies. In fact, Greater Palm Springs has sunshine almost all year long, making it the perfect destination no matter the month. However, we wanted to determine the absolute best time to go to Palm Springs.
Temperatures in Palm Springs during the fall months are absolutely superb, especially in November. The heat of the summer has faded, golf courses are in full swing, and the town truly comes alive with socialites. With average temperatures of high 78 and low 50, it’s the perfect time to experience Palm Springs to the fullest. Whether you want to play a round of golf or dip in a pool, November is the time to experience it all. Also, there are numerous festivals and local events to enjoy, including Palm Springs Vintage Market, McCormick’s Classic Car & Auction, Props & Hops Beer Festival, and much more. Without a doubt, November is the best time to go to Palm Springs, however, that doesn’t mean the other months have less to offer.
January may be too cold to go sunbathing, but it’s perfect golf and tennis weather with average highs of 71 and lows of 45. February is perhaps the most popular winter month. Temperatures begin to heat up again and Modernism Week takes over the town. Modernism Week is an 11-day celebration full of art, architecture, fashion, shows, tours, and much more. Make sure to book events early enough in advance because they tend to sell quickly! Looking for an exciting time to visit Palm Springs? You can’t go wrong with February. Practice your backswing on the golf courses or enjoy one of the many art festivals.
March and April are great times to visit the Palm Springs desert if you enjoy socializing or experiencing the occasional music festival. March has average highs of 80 and lows of 52—perfect weather, but brace yourself for spring breakers galore. However, we highly recommend checking out the well-organized BNP Paribas Tennis Tournament during this month. April is the music festival month, and perhaps one of the busiest times of the year. The vacationers are younger and ready to experience everything in this wonderful city. If you’re in tune with this kind of crowd, we highly recommend checking out the Coachella Music Festival and Stagecoach Music Festival.
The summer months in Palm Springs are great if you want to stay away from the crowds and get the best deals. Get more for your money by taking advantage of local discounts at restaurants and local hotspots. In fact, the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway provides affordable summer passes. And, don’t miss the yearly Splash House event, a popular pool party music festival!
Which season is best for you?
This all depends on your personal preference, but Palm Springs has something to offer everyone nearly year-round. If you want to experience the city to the fullest, we encourage you to visit during the Fall, Winter, and Spring months. If you’re a golfer, you can’t go wrong with November, February, or March. Music lover? April is your go-to month for world-famous music festivals. Or, you can go any time of year to experience the luxury homes in the area. With their classic, mid-century modern appeal, they have the old Hollywood charm you’ve come to expect from this timeless town.
