Palm Springs offers residents and visitors a number of unique activities and attractions. One of my favorite is the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway.
The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway - located in the rugged Chino Canyon on the north edge of Palm Springs - is the largest rotating tramcar in the world accommodating up to 80 passengers at a time.
Passengers are transported two and a half miles up to the Mountain Station from the Valley Station in an awesome ten minute ride. The floor of the aerial tram-cars rotates constantly making two complete rotations during the ride, allowing passengers to to see views in every direction without having to move around the tram-car.
Although originally conceived of in 1935, construction on the tramway only began in 1960 and took 26 months to complete.
