  • JacksonAir Flight Training
    The sky above the Coachella Valley is often sunny and clear. The cloudless conditions make it easy to pick out a small aircraft as it materializes out of a mountain range on the horizon, then corkscrews and performs a grand loop-the-loop before heading home to the Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport. The shiny blue Citabria plane is the resident aerobatic aircraft at JacksonAir Flight Training. The company's owner, Scott Mourhess, who dreamed of G-forces and airborne antics as a little boy, now oversees a fleet of no fewer than six aircraft used to train commercial and private pilots. Scott and his fellow FAA-certified flying instructors occupy prime aviation real estate. The skies above their Thermal airport often draw pilots from other flight schools in the Palm Springs region, who flock to the area for the ideal practice conditions and absence of lines at sky tollbooths. The veteran instructors also take novice pilots on 20- to 30-minute flights that introduce them to the excitement being in a cockpit and the thrill of flying.

  • Neil's Lounge
    Neil's Lounge is a relaxed restaurant with an elegant decor and classic American dishes. When you're ready to pig out, Neil's Lounge is ready to serve you the scrumptious food you're craving. Neil's Lounge also operates a bar, so a round of drinks with dinner is not out of the question. Make those early evening hours happy ones and swing by for some discounted food and drink deals after work. Dance the night away — the restaurant offers plenty of space to get down. You'll want to save quiet conversations for another spot, though — the restaurant can get noisy. During the restaurant's weekend rush, waiting in line is the name of the game (so avoid Friday and Saturday nights if you're looking for something quick). Bring the Neil's Lounge's great food to your place. A free parking lot is conveniently located next door. Neil's Lounge is a prime location for cyclists to park their bikes and enjoy a bite to eat. Neil's Lounge offers a nice selection of mid-range cuisine, so you can expect a meal there to cost about $30 or less per person.

  • Balloon Rides Online
    Across the nation, the skies are filled with giant, kaleidoscopically colored balloons languidly soaring over snowcapped peaks and green valleys. This is partly due to Balloon Rides Online, whose network of nationwide hot-air balloons paints the sky each day. Employing a FAA-approved basket and a professional pilot who has completed at least 500 flight hours, the company floats passengers over mountains, forests, and streams of caramel for one hour. While gliding with the ease of a cloud, pilots encourage guests to snap photos of sprawling landscapes and capture the moment. After landing, crew members and passengers celebrate with a champagne, mimosa or orange-juice toast?an important tradition in hot-air ballooning and preparing for inevitable hovercraft uprisings. With passengers' safety in mind, Balloon Rides Online also keeps a minimum insurance liability of $100,000 per guest.

  • The 2nd Annual Rhythm, Wine and Brews Fest
    On the rolling greens of the Empire Polo Club, the Rhythm, Wine, and Brews Fest unfolds for an afternoon of locally crafted libations and priceless rhythm and blues. Guests saunter into the white cabanas of the wine garden with souvenir glasses in hand, partaking in the fruits of local and national wineries, such as Smith & Hook and Fess Parker, underneath the shade of date palms. The scent of hops and barley drifts through the high-peaked tents of the beer-tasting pavilion, where more than 25 breweries, including Shipyard Brewing Company and Lagunitas Brewing, dispense their handcrafted suds. As daycationing denizens sniff, swish, and savor their beverages, the air buzzes with liquid rhythm and blues from a roster of roots artists.
