A Guide to Fall Preview Walking Tours

Strap on your sneakers, count those steps, and enjoy the sights during these Fall Preview Walking Tours!

One of our favorite ways to enjoy the historic neighborhoods of Palm Springs is on foot. We love the leisurely pace and opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the most famous structures in town (plus, you won’t have anyone honking at you while you’re trying to get that perfect Instagram shot).

Each of these Fall Preview Walking Tours still have tickets available. Don’t wait until it’s too late to see these modernist buildings, iconic homes, and much more!
