It’s that time of year again, when everyone is looking for an escape from frigid temperatures or the utter chaos of city life. Adulthood doesn’t guarantee a spring break, but taking time off is necessary for your mental and physical health, and what better way to unwind than by a pool in Palm Springs. The desert oasis boasts an average of 350 sun-filled days per year, and its accessibility is incredibly appealing, not to mention the gorgeous mid-century architecture and modern art at every corner. When you aren’t visiting the Palm Springs Art Museum or taking a home tour of Sunnylands, relax and let loose by one of the many pools the area has to offer. Test the limits and see how many you can dive into during your well-deserved time in Southern California.

You’ll get a first class view of the beautiful San Jacinto mountains in the distance and a prime seat for those famous picturesque desert sunsets. thesaguaro.com

Nowadays, the grounds are used for high-level retreats and meetings during which leaders convene to “promote world peace and facilitate international agreement.” sunnylands.org
