The first day we borrowed the bikes from the hotel and went on a ride about town. We checked out a bunch of the amazing mid century buildings and went to a fun arts festive where we bought some great art I’ll be sharing with you shortly. We had a great lunch and drinks at Jiao. They have a great Asian fusion menu – kind of Korean and very tasty. Wandering and shopping made for a perfect Saturday.
After riding back to the Del Marcos to drop of some things we rode over to the Ace Hotel. This was my first time at the Ace and while I enjoyed riding over there to check it out I’m very glad we weren’t staying there- as we pulled into the driveway I could hear the DJ from the street 🙂 Perfect for a girls party weekend away but not so much for the relaxing getaway with your husband. We did however have some great drinks in the bar watching people come and go. It’s a busy place even at the end of January.
Monday as we headed out of town we did do some driving around town checking out more of the mid century architecture, We used the Palm Springs Modern app which shared lots of information about the buildings and the architects. It was a fun way to close out our fun weekend away. Oh and one final meal at Shermans! Man, so tasty- I’m not usually that excited about deli’s but our sammy was delicious and the cannoli we shared was a perfect end. There are so many tiny awesome hotels in Palm Springs I can’t wait to go back and relax my way through them, with some eating and hiking thrown in for good measure. Yep, that might just be a goal I’m down with.
