The following Christmas guide to Palm Desert is a great place to start for those looking vacation packages to Palm Desert this holiday season.  

Christmas Guide to Palm Desert

While a Palm Desert Christmas getaway is bound to include plenty of lights, shopping, and outdoor fun, there’s something to be said for taking a moment to unwind in holiday style while you’re here. That’s where booking a spa day at Desert Serenity Float & Spa comes in! Located at 73712 Alessandro Drive suite B1, Desert Serenity Float & Spa is a perfect place to embrace some well-deserved rejuvenation and relaxation when you’re visiting Palm Desert this year. The spa is open Wednesday and Thursday from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm and Fridays and Saturdays from 10:00 am through 6:00 pm. If you drop by on a Sunday, services are offered between noon and 6:00 pm. One of the most appealing service options this spa offers up is restorative float therapy. This gravity-free experience is truly one-of-a-kind and can be booked as a single float or a couple’s float depending on preference. Desert Serenity Float & Spa also has a variety of massage treatments available including Swedish, hot stone, and prenatal varieties. This spa also offers up options for guests to enjoy facial treatments ranging from microdermabrasion to scrubs alike. The on-site infrared sauna is the perfect addition to the spa day lineup for those who are looking for a route leading to better sleep, detoxification, and refreshed skin and circulation. 

Take a Ride on the Aerial Tramway

A Christmas trip to Palm Desert means you’re never far from Palm Springs and access to the Aerial Tramway over the holidays! Holding the title as one of the largest aerial tramways in the country, this particular ride links Mount San Jacinto and the greater Coachella Valley. As travelers make their way to the top, they’ll enjoy stunning views and options to photograph it all from a bird’s eye perspective. It’s a great upward journey to take with the entire family and when you reach the summit, you’ll find that California sun might just be matched with some mountain snow! Throughout the month of December, Mountain Station hosts an illuminated Christmas tree which is bound to be everyone in the holiday spirit upon arrival. There are also kid’s activities and live musical performances to be enjoyed here this time of year, giving visitors reasons to take a ride or two during their stay.  

Visit Wild Lights

Year-round, the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens is a fan-favorite stop for Palm Desert travelers. Over Christmas, it becomes even more exciting thanks to the arrival of the annual Wild Lights event! In 2022, Wild Lights will happen on select days between November 22nd and December 30th, giving holiday travelers plenty of time to check it out at their own pace. The Wild Lights event has the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens decked out in their holiday lights best. Holiday-themed animal encounters get added to the lineup of activities while the holiday music and light displays add to the inviting ambiance too! In total, there are over a million holiday lights to enjoy, and many displays feature full-sized animals! When you drop by, don’t miss out on the chance to walk through the holiday light-illuminated tunnel and grab a cup of hot cocoa for the road. This event typically runs from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm and you’ll want to check the event calendar before arriving to see if your visit coincides with Santa and his sleigh.
