Dream airport: Palm Springs

May 16, 2012 | By | Comments (1)

Let’s take a minute to appreciate just how much the Palm Springs Airport is like a resort.

Palm trees and scenic mountain views? Check. Meticulously landscaped grounds with shaded alfresco areas for lounging? Yes, indeedy. Overpriced cocktails and kitschy souvenirs being purchased by the overly tan? Of course.

This outdoor terminal is inspired, with extra little touches of genius, like the gilded Sonny Bono bust triggering spontaneous eruptions of I Got You, Babe by whistling passersby. An airport that feels like part of your vacation, where you can lounge under a swaying palm before boarding? PSP is my new happy place.

    This is our favorite airport! I have been telling people the same thing that the author wrote- that the airport is part of our vacation.
