Suns out bumps out! C and I took a little babymoon getaway to Palm Springs, California, and had the best time! We chose Palm Springs because it had a little bit of everything we were wanting out of a babymoon: relaxation, sunshine, outdoor activities/hiking, good food and shopping. We LOVED it there! Palm Springs used to be a vacation spot for the old Hollywood crowd (think: Elvis, Marilyn Monroe and Frank Sinatra)... Many stars still have vacation homes there and I can see why! The area is well known for its midcentury modern architecture - some areas really feel like you're stepping back in time, in the best way! 

I'm sharing all the things we did, the places we ate and where we stayed below (plus a few bonus activities that were on our list). I'd definitely recommend Palm Springs for a babymoon, bachelorette party, friend trip or just a low-key long weekend! In my opinion it was similar to Scottsdale, but on a smaller and quieter scale.
