Busy main street in PSP. No bike lanes but people don't drive too crazy. Very wide sidewalks. You can take Palm Canyon Drive for miles!

On Thursday evening they have a street festival which brings out TONS of people and is really nice to walk around after dinner. Overall a fairly good collection of shops and restaurants.

We drove around on our own, but also booked a three hour guided tour, which I highly recommend. The two major downtown Palm Springs streets still have some historic buildings. There is a street fair during some evenings that has fun food and music.

There are film offices and studios in Palm Springs but you'd have to call them individually regarding "visits" and tours.
