There are a lot of casinos and golf courses out there. There is a cable car that goes to the top of Mt San Gorgonio which might be a decent touristy thing to do out there. I think there are some hiking trails at the top of the mountain. It is interesting to see the difference in climate and ecosystem as you climb in altitude. There is prob still snow on the mountain from the last storm too.

BC is over 1000 miles away. That's a long drive... 2 or 3 days I'm guessing.
First off thanks for the info lol Sorry i was going with the way my mother said it to me So yes i ment indio Yes my parent a very much retired so that is spot on. Golf course sounds good maybe get a day of golf in Public courses im thinking green fees plus clubs + chart + balls etc 100 ish ? Thanks for the weather there this time of year so im packing shorts for sure lol Yes its going to be a long drive with sister and mom major part of it is to get the car to bc so thinking longer then 3 maybe 4days cause im heading to the vancover island. the 15 20 miles is great news as im leaving here at 5 am and getting to palm springs at 5pm so that ride is alot shorter then i thought looking at a map (Phew) Thanks again greatly for the infor
