Palm Springs Aerial Tramway
Palm Springs, California, United States of America
Take the scenic cable car up the Chino Canyon to the cooler peaks of the San Jacinto Mountain Range. Admire beautiful views of Palm Springs below, walk the nature trails surrounded by towering palm trees and visit the natural history museum.
Escape the heat of the valley floor and head to San Jacinto State Park, where nature trails are aplenty and the climate is much cooler.
In just ten minutes, you'll go from walking the valley floor to viewing it from above and upon arrival, you can spend as much or as little time admiring the picturesque vistas. At the top, you can enjoy a drink in the restaurant, visit the natural history museum to learn about the geology and culture of the area or watch a documentary about the park. Those wanting to be a little more active can take a short (or long) hike around the park and when you are wandering round, keep your eyes peeled for colourful hummingbirds.
