Desert Hills Premium Outlets

Reviewed By SymnCwl - Memphis

One of the largest outdoor outlet malls in the country (180 stores). Many, many brand name outlet stores spread out over four lots. Get a map and plan your trip. Two food courts. Very busy. That said, unless you are shopping for something specific or want to get your steps in, it's pretty typical.

Decorative arts museum that features 17th-19th century European and Asian works.

Reviewed By cheshrgato - Riverside, CA

This isn't the Beaumont you are thinking of, as it is above the town in an area of open fields and horses. The museum is full of furniture so special it qualifies as art. It is a lovely stop on your way through the pass, to or from Palm Springs or beyond. They often have special events so check their website for an event that would make your stop even more meaningful.

Went by to see what it was and it is FANTASTIC. If you want to know about fire engines, firefighters, equipment and history GO TO THIS MUSEUM. The building is a firehouse and has lots of rooms of exhibits, fire trucks, hand pumpers, bottles, uniforms, hats, badges, shields etc. There are items from all over to see. They have a children's room with hands on items and a fire truck out of doors for them to work the truck nozzle to shoot at a mock up " house on fire ". This is a GREAT Museum. Costs are -Adults $4, Seniors $2.50, Students $2 and children under 5 free. All active duty Fire Fighters and Military are free. Donations are welcome to help support. This is a very fascinating and must see museum and has a small gift shop. If you go on Thursday ask for Don who is very knowledgeable for a tour.

Great place to shop for shoes. They have pretty much everything you could want. Every style, size and price range imaginable. And if you like a real bargain and have the time to look, the clearance racks have really good bargains. For sure the place to go for shoes.

Snowline Apple Orchard

Reviewed By Michael T - Los Angeles, California

Snow line is a fun orchard to visit. You specifically have to try their apple cider mini donuts which they make in front of you!

Well they offer wine tasting, last time I tried the wine it was not very good. However maybe they've gotten better. Their apple cider is ridiculously expensive… But apparently that's an Oak Glen thing... I'm originally from New England we are top notch apple cider is about five dollars a gallon. The rest of the story is fun to look at. Nothing too exciting, but worth the stop. Again... the donuts are a MUST!!!

Crown Village Clock Tower

Reviewed By CharleySays - Atascadero, California

What an interesting attraction in the tiny town of Calimesa. A ‘cuckoo’ clock with full human sized figures that come out to trumpet the arrival of the king and queen who come out to announce the time. It is well done and so cute. My wife and her sister were smitten by the event, claiming it was a true highlight of the day and more. They carried on and on and on, It is fun , and worth a stop. The clock show is at 7, 9, 11, 1, 3 and 5. See the sign I posted. Enjoy this oddity of a tiny town.

Measuring 7,003 yards in length, this 18-hole, desert-style golf course has good elevation changes and interesting holes.

Reviewed By paulowlcourt - North Vancouver, BC

For $45.00 it is worth the trip to Oak Valley. The course has seen better days with fairways rough, the greens however were in good shape and if you are a high handicapper the course is wide and pretty forgiving. We went with a large group so needed a place that met everyone's budget but was also able to give us a couple of tee times together. Never a good sign!! WE pretty much had the course to ourselves. The weather was interesting, raining and cold, while it was sunny and warm to the East. Course is closer to the mountains so I understand it is in a weather micro-climate. Check the forecast and bring warmer gear, a lot of our group missed the "Memo" about he weather and were under dressed, which seems impossible in March in the area. Staff were friendly, helpful with advise and the food in the restaurant decent.

Cabazon Outlets

Reviewed By snoopy647 - Victoria, BC Canada

Always worth stopping at when going to Cabazon to shop. This outlet centre has a variety of stores, that dependent on what you want, selection/prices can be good. My husband who is not an "Outlet shopper", got a great deal on a Waterproof jacket at Columbia. Many of the stores here are the more "active/outdoor" clothing stores. I love the Jockey store as very reasonable prices compared to Canada.

Oak Glen Preserve

Reviewed By Knansea - CA

We made a quick detour to Oak Glen on our way to Palm Springs. It was at least 25 degrees cooler there! You're in the foothills, but there's no mountain driving to do. The preserve has easy walking paths to more difficult trails. Even in the summer it was mostly shaded and green, especially following the Spring Trail. Many native flowers still blooming in July! Great views, informative signs for the many, many native plants. They sell food and have a shop selling apple cider, pie, apple butter, etc. I knew it was popular for Fall apple picking, but it's also a great place to get away from the heat.
