Memorial weekend getaways in the Coachella Valley

Three-day weekend.  The three words alone are enough to get the relaxation started.

With a wide variety of things to do and places to stay in the Coachella Valley, a three-day weekend getaway in the Palm Springs area offers a relaxing option for families, friends and couples.

Choosing where to stay for your getaway will set the stage.  Whether you are looking for a mid-century masterpiece, an affordable home for the whole family or a resort-like setting with a pool, Coachella Valley vacation rentals offer an alternative to traditional hotel accommodations. Full kitchens, private surroundings and room to relax provide an ideal foundation for any vacation.

Hiking, shopping, casinos, golfing, galleries and more – as well as dining, clubs, bars and theatres – will all keep you busy during a Memorial weekend getaway in the Palm Springs area. Or you could just relax poolside with a drink and good book.

Memorial Day in the Coachella Valley includes several commemorations and ceremonies. You won’t want to miss the Palm Springs Air Museum’s annual Memorial Day Flower Drop & Air Fair, when 3,000 flowers are dropped from a vintage aircraft. Flight exhibitions, children’s activities and food vendors round out the day.

Many local businesses and organizations will also offer discounts to military personnel, veterans and first responders in honor of Memorial Day. At the Living Desert Museum, all active duty, reserve and retired military personnel, police, firefighters, EMTs and up to six family members receive 50 percent off admission Memorial Day.
