If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to travel more (with your four-legged best friend in tow), then start planning a getaway to Greater Palm Springs. With more than 300 days of sunshine annually, this Southern California oasis offers a blissful, sun-kissed escape during the winter months, and you’ll find ample opportunities to get outside, enjoy the mild weather and soak up some rays.
Fetch and frolic at one of several sprawling dog parks, where mountains and palm trees provide a breathtaking backdrop for off-leash fun. Or pick a pet-friendly hike, like the Whitewater Canyon Loop Trail, to experience the destination’s scenic, natural beauty.
Here are more Greater Palm Springs experiences that make tails wag:  more »
