Palm Springs can feel like an adult playground, with golf courses, Rat Pack inspired hotels and bars, plus cool architecture and design stores. But between brunch and happy hour, a trip on the Palm Springs Aerial Tram will give you an amazing view of the Coachella Valley. From the top, you can see the line of the San Andreas Fault, as well as the Salton Sea.
But you may want to skip the mimosa at brunch, because the tram rotates and sways as it rides up the side of the Chino Canyon. And bring a sweater, as the temperature at the top can be up to 30 degrees cooler than at the bottom
