If dry weather and warm sun is your family vacation style then head on down to the desert! Palm Springs, California offers some great family experiences this winter. In addition to beautiful golf courses and warm pools, Palm Springs offers families many activities! Head down to the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens, where you can observe animals in their natural habitat. Drop by the animal hospital and get a chance for a unique experience to witness an animal check up firsthand!
