Consistently warm winter temperatures and sunny skies draw snowbirds to the California Desert region, but any number of other attractions will keep winter visitors returning year after year. The outdoor fun is endless: golfing at a PGA championship course, hiking and other outdoor adventures in the desert, art galleries and shopping in Palm Desert, hot air ballooning over Joshua Tree National Park, the thousands of birds at the Salton Sea, tennis and polo, or the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, which takes you up the sheer cliffs of Chino Canyon. The area's great restaurants make the region a virtual foodie's paradise. Plus, spend wonderfully lazy hours by the pool sipping on a drink. Located on Agua Caliente tribal land, the undisturbed natural beauty of the Indian Canyons is a must-see.
