Palm Springs Aerial Tramway

I highly recommend a trip up the rotating aerial tramway. It takes you near the top of San Jacinto Peak and has amazing views of the Coachella Valley. 

If you’re a hiker, it provides a whole new set of trails. I highly recommend you have a map and the ten essentials though as we got mildly lost trying to go on a small hike. 

Tickets are about $25 round trip. Up at the top is a restaurant and small museum area. 

Make sure to stop at the visitor center when you first turn in. It’s an old gas station with some cool architecture. 

See below for some photos of the view from the top. The last photo is looking up at the peak. You can see Bob Hope’s space age style home on the hills in the foreground.
