A morning at the Living Desert aquaints you with the natural history and wildlife of the region. A picnic lunch is included at the park. Return to Palm Springs in time for the matinee performance as the Fabulous Palm Springs Follies celebrates its 22nd season with a new show “Dance with the Music.” The “long-legged lovelies and follies gents” (55 to 85 years young) will be kicking up their heels to the music of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s… dancing the stroll, the twist, and even some disco. Singer, Lesley Gore, is the featured headliner of the show. You may recall her hits from the 60’s and 70’s: “Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows” and “It’s My Party.” Enjoy the entire show from your premier center orchestra seating. After the show, walk across the street for a fine dinner at the Kaiser Grill, a Sports Leisure favorite.

The gondolas have windows all around and the floor rotates slowly so as you travel up the mountainside, you get a 360-degree view of the valley below. Following lunch on the mountain, your afternoon flight to Sacramento is direct from Palm Springs.
