Fall is a glorious time to escape to Palm Springs and the Southern California mountains. Temperatures are moderate, and there is plenty of sunshine. At the same time, crowds are thinner, and accommodations are much more affordable than during the peak winter and early spring months.
For great fall getaways, worldwide vacation exchange leader DAE offers luxurious resorts and mountain lodges with all the comforts of home. Think excellent rates on high-end accommodations with multiple bedrooms, kitchens, separate living areas, fireplaces, private balconies and gorgeous views. There are inviting resort amenities, too, like a private beach, indoor pool, fitness center, game room and more.
Adding still more vacation value, DAE Bonus Weeks provide an opportunity for members to treat themselves, their family or friends to a terrific vacation at an unbeatable price. Bonus Weeks are those that have not been booked up to eight weeks from check-in date, so DAE discounts them for last-minute getaways. The exchange provider encourages members to sign up online and check the Bonus/Rental availability often. New stock is added daily, and accommodations are booked on a first-in-first-served basis. Members can purchase as many Bonus Weeks as they like without a deposit credit, so it is easy to share the fun with family and friends.
Here are DAE’s recommendations for brilliant fall getaways in Southern California.
Renowned for its celebrity mansions and golf courses, Palm Springs also boasts natural wonders. Two hours from Los Angeles and encircled by mountains, the region is a mecca for people watching, outdoor recreation and scenic beauty.
Palm Springs Aerial Tramway – As the world’s largest rotating gondola, this cable car ride takes passengers from the desert of Palm Springs for a 2.5-mile trip up Mount San Jacinto, while serving up spectacular views of Chino Canyon. Afterwards, enjoy a hike in Mt. San Jacinto State Park, offering 54 miles of hiking trails within a 14,000-acre wilderness.
Indian Canyons – Located on Agua Caliente tribal land and minutes from downtown Palm Springs, these canyons feature trails, scores of different bird species and natural beauty.
Palm Springs Celebrity Tour – Set out on a tour past the mansions of the rich and famous like Bob Hope, Goldie Hawn and Henry Kissinger. Tour guides add to the fun with witty commentary.
Shopping – The streets of downtown and the Uptown Design District are lined with boutique shops, consignment dealers, antique shops and art galleries. Visit on a Thursday night, when Palm Springs Villagefest transforms much of downtown into a lively outdoor festival spotlighting arts, crafts, food and entertainment.
Big Bear Lake and Lake Arrowhead
Located 100 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles, these deep-blue lakes offer year-round fun, perched in the San Bernardino Mountains at 7,000 feet. In the autumn, the region is awash in gold, crimson and amber hues, making it a fine time for outdoor adventures. Visitors relax at a luxurious resort or mountain lodge and enjoy the stunning scenery, crisp mountain air, and the choice to do as much or as little as they like.
Outdoor Adventures – Go fishing in lakes or mountain streams. Or, take in the colorful foliage, while hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. Thrill seekers enjoy the scenery via the popular zipline tours or from a helicopter. Big Bear Lake is also a mountain-biking hub. Hop on a ski lift and take a bike to trails and meadows at roughly 8,000 feet. Meanwhile, hikers head to the San Bernardino National Forest, home to mountains, trails, wildlife and archaeological sites. For a change of pace, go for a sunset horseback ride on a trail serving up sweeping views of the Mojave Desert.
The Bear Mountain Golf Course – This 9-hole, par-35 course offers its own splendid views, nestled at the base of the Bear Mountain Ski Resort.
Big Bear Village – This lively gathering place for shopping, dining and nightlife mixes alpine-style architecture with contemporary comforts. Many of the boutique shops echo the area’s gold mining history and natural beauty. Visitors choose from top-notch dining and nightlife options. The mountain town’s recent makeover brings such enhancements as heated sidewalks, outdoor fire pits and decorative lighting.
Leisure Pursuits – Visitors with a yen to do nothing at all opt for a massage at one of the area spas, enjoy a romantic dinner or just sit on the porch and take in the majestic views.
