It’s as though the 60’s moved in, and refused to leave. But while Palm Springs honours its swinging past, there is a new energy to this low slung city. With a population of 45,000, which swells to three times that during “The Season” (January to April), new hotels are being built, restaurants are springing up, and the airport has expansion plans. Their estimated 5 million visitors a year continues to grow, especially with the popularity of the Coachella and StageCoach music festivals.
