Our Day-Cation to Palm Springs

Wednesday, December 5, 2018

I like the best of both worlds... who doesn't?! Recently we took a day trip to Palm Springs and got to go sledding and enjoy the sunshine all in one day!


We lucked out and found A LOT of snow at the top of the Palm Springs Tram. We grabbed a sled from the souvenir shop and enjoyed snow with the kids for the first time! After we were thoroughly frozen we got some hot chocolate in the restaurant and headed back to the tram to go back down to the base of the mountain.









 If you're planning on taking the tram with kiddos I would bring warm jackets, hats, and waterproof boots (rain boots would get the job done). If you have a sled bring it and save yourself a few dollars. Water and snacks are obvious items and gum (for your older kiddos) would help with ear discomfort (the altitude is above 8,000 feet).

After our snow play we were pretty hungry so we hit up our favorite local sandwich shop called,  The Sandwich Spot. M ordered the "sunny and share" which is basically a BLT on crack. I got the "serve and volley" which is a turkey sandwich with "bomb" sauce and let me tell you... it is bomb! I wanted to take it home and eat it with all my meals! The kiddos noshed on grilled cheese and the service could not have been better. All smiles and complements to our sweet family from their servers and the owner (boy did we fool them!). ;)




To finish off our day trip we hit up a local coffee shop called Koffi (naturally!). The baristas were super friendly and we felt so welcomed all day everywhere we went! Their flat white hit the spot and gave us that extra boost of caffeine for the car ride home . My favorite part about the shop was the beautiful courtyard in the back. Complete with rustic wooden benches, loads of bougainvillea, and papel picado it was truly an oasis in the middle of the desert! Letting the kids run off their last bits of energy while we sat and sipped our coffee was what dreams are made of. ;)







We finished up our day with a stroll down Palm Canyon, the main street in Palm Springs. It was fun to see the festive decor and enjoy the comfortable weather. Such a great day trip for our little family!
