Best time to visit Palm Springs, CA, USA?

  • We recommend visiting Palm Springs in May when temperatures are hot but room rates are more affordable. During this time, expect to pay around $165/night for a rental for two. That's 25% less than the average rate in April. Temperatures are in the low 80s, just a bit warmer than the average 80°F you could get during peak season.
  • Most tourists visit Palm Springs in the spring. This is peak season so make sure book your hotel room a few months early. The Coachella week (April 12th - 17th), the Stagecoach week (April 26th to May 1st) as well as the Christmas week (December 22nd to January 2nd) are also very popular periods, so expect the highest room rates of the year.
