Bike Palm Springs gives day-trippers the retro-styled cycling essentials they need to tour the neighborhood on two wheels. The shop's tandem and premium bicycles are bedecked with a Fifties flair, as evidenced by their softly curving frames, handlebar tassels, and propensity to threaten inconsiderate drivers with a knuckle sandwich. A tandem bike also allows one half of your Beat poetry quartet to snap in unison as you tear across the level Palm Springs terrain. Celebrity abodes and architectural sites give you plenty to look at during a carefree day of soaking up vitamin D and clearing the cobwebs from your cardiovascular condition. Helmets and locks are included with your rental.

Joshua Tree Guides is exclusively staffed with passionate guides—each trained by the Professional Climbing Guides Institute—who convey their intimate knowledge of rock climbing in guided tours and classes for adventurers, families, and beginners. During private climbing tours, engaging guides lead climbers to one of an endless number of vertical opportunities and ensure that each rock scaler feels the thrill of conquering the terrain while remaining sturdy and safe. Each tour is customized to the climbers’ comfort levels, making the experience an excellent introduction to outdoor climbing or a chance for familiar climbers to pinch the cheeks of adorable rock faces they've never encountered. Whether climbing locally or during a custom trip with Joshua Tree, climbers put any number of territory-conquering techniques to use, such as slab climbing, top roping, and climbing in a single-pitch environment. Joshua Tree has also trained U.S. Special Forces teams in modern climbing techniques and works with a variety of national corporations, including Google and Red Bull.

When 20-year climbing veteran Zeke Federman started a rock-climbing guide service, he needed to situate its headquarters someplace that was more than simply rocky. The spot he settled on falls squarely in Joshua Tree National Park—an area boasting a varied landscape and steady climate that is friendly to year-round mountaineering and offers challenging routes to both beginners and experienced climbers with their own pet mountain goats. Zeke's climbing academy, Joshua Tree Guides, sets its students loose on guided excursions across the region's higher-altitude cliffs. His staff of Professional Climbing Guides Institute–trained guides has won points with clients for combining an easygoing demeanor with a serious attentiveness to safety and the needs of beginners to go slowly. In addition to small groups, the company has also guided successful climbing outings for large corporations such as Google and Frito-Lay.

At both of Cimarron Golf Resort's John Fought–designed courses, one massive, unblinking spectator watches on: the San Jacinto Mountain Range. Its massive rockfaces jut above the fairways and greens, adding visual drama to every westward drive and putt. Nodding to those rocky outcrops with its name, the championship-length Boulder course challenges golfers with 6,782 open yards, including a formidable 569-yard, par-five 18th hole. At the Boulder's sibling course, the Pebble, 17 par-threes tempt players with 17 chances for a hole-in-one. Before any round, a driving range with five target greens hosts swing rehearsals, on-site golf lessons, and clinics that help golfers hit farther and yell "Fore!" louder.

Boulder Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 71 course
  • Length of 6,782 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 71.6 from the back tees

The snow-capped peaks of the San Jacinto Mountains peer over the treeline, creating a scenic backdrop to Cathedral Canyon Golf Club’s 18-hole course. Designed by prolific California course architect David Rainville—in consultation with Hall of Famer Billy Casper—the course winds across more than 6,500 yards dotted with ponds that reflect the distant mountains and the fearful grimaces of birds as they evade speeding tee shots. To prepare their swings for their next round, golfers can warm up at the club’s driving range or schedule a lesson with PGA Class A instructor Steve Creps.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Total length of 6,505 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 71.1 from the back tees
