Palm Springs is for the Millennials

Posted on by Alex

By Sofia Yarberry

Although most Millennials grew up envisioning Palm Springs as a spring break getaway or otherwise writing it off as a retirement haven— with the rise of swanky restaurants & bars, hip architecture, and an array of annual artistically relevant events, Palm Springs culture has officially shifted.

Now, a blossoming community of young creative types have realized the affordable housing market as well as the rising economy and are making palm springs their home.
Condos and townhouses are some of the most affordable options in the desert while still maintaining a hip aesthetic quality and taking advantage of what this up coming city has to offer. There are many condo complexes located within walking distance of downtown— this accessibility allows for a rousing social scene. Whether it’s to grab coffee with a friend at the new Northwest-inspired coffeehouse Ernest Coffee, sit down for a drink at one of the many swanky cocktail lounges, or browse the many art galleries and furniture stores, the downtown strip of Palm Springs always has something going on. In addition to easy access to all the going-ons of the city, most complexes offer pools, spas, and private patios for quiet mornings and low-key nights.
