Even if you're staying at Cathedral City hotels during the burning peak of the summer desert heat, you'll want to spend at least a little time outdoors admiring the magnificently imposing rock formations that encircle it. Do so around the town square and you'll admire rose gardens and public art, but the feature that will really beckon you is the "Fountain of Life," an artistically sculptural, interactive water fountain where children frolic and squeal while getting purposely soaked. Join them, even if it's just with the subtle reach of a toe or an arm, and feel the water tempering the sizzle of the sun on your skin. You might be tempted to run through the spray with childlike abandon, and why not? Cathedral City rental cars — and their blessed air conditioning— will take you to another oasis in the desert, Palm Springs. You'll soak up the sun while lounging by the pool at one of the great Palm Springs hotels, then plunge into the water to sense the delight of cool water replacing the sun's sapping heat over your entire body.
