The sun feels warm on your body as you recline poolside in a chaise longue. Although you just closed them a moment ago, you open your eyelids and again scan your surroundings. Even with sunglasses on, the serenity of this scene blows you away. The fronds of prodigious palm trees dance against the azure sky behind them while a capricious hummingbird darts past the pool in search of sweet nectar from a nearby flower. Just the sight of it puts your mind at ease more so than any other vacation you can remember. This is Palm Springs, old friend, and the only one enjoying Southern California more than you right now is the precious pooch lying beside you. When you book a stay at any of Palm Springs’ pet-friendly hotels, you and your furry friend can explore this resort city together.
