About Deserts Vacation Rental Homes.
An ideal vacation destination for outdoor enthusiasts, the Californian Deserts is a haven for hikers and lovers of spectacular arid scenery. With a plethora of national parks, most notably the Anza-Borrego, Death Valley National Park and Joshua Tree National Park, there is plenty for visitors to see and do.
Many tourists fail to realise the beauty of this area as they so often drive through on their way to more glamorous, exclusive climes. Nevertheless, resorts such as Palm Springs, offer a stunning sanctuary from the playground of Los Angeles. Areas of particular natural beauty can be found here and the perfect combination of outdoor and indoor activities allows families and couples the chance to enjoy the weather whenever they please, staying in fabulous vacation rental properties and holiday homes.
Despite preconceptions of the area being an arid, soulless area of the United States, many visitors eventually appreciate its wilderness and striking landscape.

Ssg California Deserts

If you book up a California Desert vacation rental home you will be surprised at how many things there are to do here, and the variety of activities on offer.

If you’re looking for outdoor adventure, you could start by visiting the amazing Death Valley National Park, an incredible 5,000 square miles full of canyons, volcanic craters, velvet smooth sand dunes and palm-shaded oases, a land of improbable scenery and wild beautiful weirdness which is best viewed in the summer if you want less crowds but can stand the heat, or in the winter or spring if you want slightly cooler temperatures. And you do have the choice of trekking or doing it all from the relative comfort of an air-conditioned car. Or you could see it all from a different viewpoint by hitching a ride on the Palm Springs Aerial Tram which rises 6,000 feet above the Sonoran Desert and traverses five climate zones in just 12 minutes, or you could try hot-air ballooning over Joshua Tree. Choices, choices.

Booking up a California Desert vacation rental home also offers you the opportunity to visit the Palm Deserts Living Desert Zoo and Gardens which showcases desert species from around the world and includes a botanical garden, historical museum, a wilderness park, nature preserve and an educational center. You could also leave your California Desert vacation rental home and go off for a few days on the back of an open-air jeep to explore the incredible nature, geology, and fascinating wildlife of Anza-Borrego State Park, settling down for campfire dinners and story-telling at night.

If you want to explore the arts you could go into Palm Springs and go to Backstreet Art District and its dozen or so artist-owned galleries, or Palm canyon Drive and its several intimate art galleries. Or you could go and visit the Palm Springs Art Museum which offers 28 different galleries.

If you book up a California desert vacation rental home and would like to play a bit of golf, you’re in for a treat since there are plenty of golf courses in the wide expanses of the desert and they offer some unique and distinctive settings, like the spectacular desert beauty of Death Valley’s remarkable Furnace Creek. There’s also plenty of shopping to be had, and if you book up a California Desert vacation rental home, the best option is to go into Palm Springs and visit its numerous shopping malls and designer shops. You will also find many spas and wellness centers of every kind, with the most celebrated one being the Indian Wells Spa at Miramonte Resort which was actually named the number 1 spa in North America by Conde Nast Traveler magazine.

Californian Deserts are a law unto themselves and a great vacation destination if you want something slightly different.
