Low Travel Prices in June and September

The busiest season in Palm Springs is from January to May when perfect weather beckons snowbirds to the sunny resort town. From July to August, hot temperatures drive tourists away, and prices often plummet. The shoulder season is in June and September. These months offer lows in the low 70s, but highs that spike above 100 still keep travel prices down.

Eleven major rental car companies operate counters in the airport. Additionally, three taxi providers and dozens of private transportation companies are on hand.

Stunning Hikes in the Canyons

Palm Springs is known for gourmet eats, high-end shopping, picturesque golf courses, and luxury resorts, but this area has many budget highlights that are even more breathtaking. Though the mountains are often seen as a spectacular backdrop for more modern activities, a hike through the Indian Canyons is a must for visitors who want a closer look at the area’s natural beauty.
