Feedback on Palm Springs with Kids Itinerary

Jump to last reply

We are going to Palm Springs the first week of April. Kids are 9 and 11. We are staying at the Homewood Suites (I think its in Palm Desert). We obviously have a car. Here is what I have mapped out so far. We are usually good from 9a-3 or 4pm. And then its back to the hotel/ppol and in for the night. We usually get take out and eat in the room--much more relaxing for all involved.

Monday-Desert Museum (outdoors, my kids love animals, should be fun)
Tuesday-Childrens Discovery Museum (indoors, we all love science museums)
Wednesday--Joshua Tree NP. Cannot wait!!!! Will do some short hikes. I am just really excited.
Thursday--Palm Springs Air Museum, Village Green Museums (3 of them, we will see how many we get through), walk around PS maybe??? Don't know if we will make it to the Thursday night street fair. Will have to see.
Friday--Indian Canyons hikes

I think we may need to have some "modular" activities so if the Childrens Discovery Museum is done by noon, we could maybe walk around PS or see the Village Green museums. Have to see how that goes. I am also considering renting some bikes and doing a family bike ride. Are there distinct bike paths vs. roads with cars?

I don't know that we will want to do the tramway--it sounds like it could be chilly in April and we are escaping cold. Thoughts on this??

Anything else I am missing?
