Even though Los Angeles is about as mild a climate as you can get in the winter, sometimes 65 degrees just isn't enough for us crazy Angelenos. No, sometimes we just need the warm, beating rays of a 90-degree sun in the winter, making the desert oasis of Palm Springs the perfect getaway. About a 2-hour drive from greater Los Angeles, Palm Springs makes a great weekend trip. Warm weather, palm trees for miles and eye-catching quirks just about everywhere you go? I think I could use a little escape to Palm Springs right about now.
