After dark, magical things happen here—particularly this time of year. Summer nights are like that in Greater Palm Springs.
When daytime temperatures inch up in Greater Palm Springs, people head outside to enjoy those intoxicating summer evenings. The nights rev up with romance, as well as outdoor fun. It’s not surprising that visitors from all over the world arrive in our Oasis each summer to unwind at night and take advantage of extra pampering all day at spas, shops and resorts that roll out equally intoxicating Chill deals.
Be Naughty (or Nice)
The Hard Rock Hotel wants you to make love not war with their “Naughty or Nice” summer stay special. Get room to play…and sleep, plus breakfast in bed, a $250 Rock Spa credit, late check out and more. To claim this deal that is too tempting to pass up and more Chill deal stays, check here.
Have a (Beach) Ball
After dark, “people-made seas” at some of Greater Palm Springs’ most talked about resorts lure visitors to celebrate summer enveloped in cool tunes and H20. Hang out at the midcentury Ace Hotel on weekends for one of the hotel’s celebrity-studded pool parties and order some of their mixologist favorites to start the fun. Or, find your wet and wild side at the Hard Rock Hotel after the sun slips down behind the San Jacintos. The pool at The Saguaro is on the verge of a party night or day, however, on some nights, they crank the volume up and maybe throw in some beach balls to stir up the party. Find all the can’t-miss pool parties here.
Take a Sunset Jeep Tour
During the “magic hour,” the long shadows bathe the hills of Greater Palm Springs in incredible rainbow hues. Wildlife stirs, along with your chances of catching a glimpse of a coyote, fox or owl. On this excursion, extraordinary scenery abounds as your Big Red Jeep winds its way through the labyrinth of geological cuts and canyons of the San Andreas Fault Zone, a natural palm oasis with crystal clear water and vistas that make sunset unforgettable.
Toast the Night with Margaritas
Celebrate the romantic San Andreas Fault Jeep Tour with free margaritas at Rio Azul, winner of the “Best Margarita” by Palm Springs Life readers. Just mention “Chill” when ordering and get “2 Rio Margaritas for the price of 1.”
Indulge on Late-Night Bites
Think you have to go the fast food route for a late-night repast? Not in Greater Palm Springs. Check out all the chef-driven, party-fun spots to wine and dine until midnight and beyond!
Ride & Dine under a Full Moon
Summer is an ideal time to take in a number-one favorite attraction—the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. The Tram’s colossal rotating cars climb two and one-half miles in just 10 minutes to the pristine mountain wilderness of Mt. San Jacinto State Park—at a brisk pine-scented elevation of 8,516 feet that promises to knock nearly 40 degrees off the temperature on the desert floor. Hike under a full moon or dine and ride above it all. You’ve never seen so many twinkling lights and stars.
Get Midnight Ready
Nothing beats a night on the town after some deserved pampering earlier in the day. Indulge in a relaxing massage or facial, topped by a manicure, pedicure and blow dry. Be the best “you” for whatever the night brings, from dancing and dining to romantic drives under a starry sky. With Chill spa deals in the Oasis, you don’t have to choose from pampering treatments—get them all at great Chill prices. Save 32% all summer at The Spa at Westin Mission Hills.
