I’ve been vacationing in Palm Springs for the past 11 years but this was my first trip to see the Cabazon Dinosaurs. How have I resisted this landmark right off the side of the freeway for so long?! I love dinosaurs so my inner child took over. A chance to take a picture with T-Rex, of course! It was truly a unique and memorable experience. Palm Springs has always been my favorite city in So-Cal. This time we stayed at The Avalon formally known as The Viceroy hotel. We were in town for the weekend and spent most of our time in Downtown Palm Springs. It was perfect for shopping because I found an affordable shop called Paperdolls Boutique on the strip. It’s great for quick, stylish duds on a budget if you’re in the area and looking for a quick fix.
