Palm Springs Aerial Tramway

If you’re looking for a fun activity to do on a day off or after the horseshow the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway should be at the top of your bucket list! Climb aboard the world’s largest rotating tramcar and enjoy the beautiful views of Coachella Valley.  Soar over the cliffs of Chino Canyon before approaching the wilderness of Mt. San Jacinto State Park.  The car will rotate slowly, enabling great visibility from every viewpoint of the valley below. 

Upon arrival into Mountain Station, elevated at an astounding 8,516 feet, indulge yourself in the attractions offered. Enjoy the views from a different perspective from the observation decks or embark on one of the 50 miles of hiking trails available.

There are two featured restaurants on the Mountain, Peaks Restaurant and Pines Café. Peaks restaurant is the more upscale, fine dining option overlooking Coachella Valley.  Pines cafe is a more relaxed, cafeteria- style restaurant that offers food packages with the rides.  In the same location is the Lookout Lounge which is a full cocktail bar to compliment whatever meal you choose.

Later, make sure to head over to the natural history museum or the documentary theaters to catch up on the background of the area. Before the descent back down the scenic valley, make sure to check out the gift shop to pick up any souvenirs that you would like to remember the experience.
