Tour Type


**This Tour is SOLD OUT**


Come Join us on a tour full of adventure and fun!!

This is a “wanna get away” tour that we have put together just for our OregonWest travelers based on feedback from our recent survey. We realize this is a short turn around for a tour, but it seems there is an appetite for getting out of Oregon this spring to somewhere warm! We have worked to keep the costs of this tour as low as possible and got a great rate on airfare, but we need to make a decision quickly regarding the feasibility of the tour. We have built it for a smaller group and will take the tour if 15 or more travelers sign up!


Day One -April 28th, 2024 Arrival in Palm Springs
Today we will leave Portland in the early afternoon and arrive in Palm Springs by 5PM. We will check into our hotel and then have a great dinner together in Palm Springs. Enjoy the warm desert air and the fun character of this desert oasis. (D)

Day Two – April 29th, 2024 Aerial Tram and the Art Museum
After breakfast at the hotel we will head out on our way to the Palm Springs Aerial Tram. This is a well-known and loved piece of Palm Springs character.

If you come to this part of California, a trip to the Salton Sea is a must.

We will enjoy the lake and the surroundings and have a boxed lunch at one of the view points. This afternoon we will head back to Palm Springs and get some time to freshen up and rest at the hotel before we head out for an Architecture Tour and Martini focused on the homes and rest stops that the famous Rat Pack of the golden age of Hollywood enjoyed!
