While it was fun to mingle with the crowds, the offerings were of low quality and mostly overpriced.

Every Thursday night from sundown this event closes the main streets for six blocks and local vendors line the streets selling fresh food and crafts. Lots of fun and I love buying the multiple choices of Pistachios.

Lots of great "motels" with tons of character. You'll get the real feel of Palm Springs at any of them. If you want higher end, the Hyatt is there but I'd try the local ones instead.
