274. Palm Springs, California United States
Ever Made It To Palm Springs, California USA?
Why Palm Springs, California USA?
This city sits in the desert. Its pretty cool to see it too as there is a huge mountain on one side of the city and the plains in which the city is built right next to it. I’m always amazed at how it all works whenever I visit. It’s pretty dry and hot out here, but yet still there are beautiful golf courses, well manicured lawns and then bone dry desert right next door. The combination of all this is worth seeing for yourself.
Palm Springs sits in the middle of the desert east of Los Angeles and north of San Diego in the state of California in the United States.
