There are a ton of things to do here. Obviously, what to do depends on what your interests are. So instead of reproducing an activities calendar, I'd suggest starting with the local gay press to see what's going on.
Live Magazine is at http://www.palmspringsliveonline.tv/
Yes, we also have hotels ranging from pretentious to sleazy. If your goal is to be downtown within walking distance of the casino and gay nightclubs (on Arenas Rd.), a lot of our repeat visitors either choose the Best Western (literally about 50 feet from Arenas) or the Hyatt downtown. Neither is a 'gay' hotel. If your goal is to hookup with others, then the hotels in Warm Sands are where you should be.
Arenas Road has Hunters, Streetbar, Spurline and Score (all nightclubs) and Bongo Johnny's (for a relaxed lunch). There's also shopping (Gay Mart). Off Arenas, but still in Palm Springs is Hamburger Mary's, Zin and Johannes (for food) and Toucan's (another gay nightclub). There's also the slightly upscale Dinks and the well regarded Trio (both restaurants). If it's a nice day and you'd like to enjoy a meal or a drink outside, I'd suggest Azul. Azul has a mixed, lively bar crowd at their outside bar during the day. At night, Azul opens a video bar upstairs named George's Alibi.
If you're into dancing, the places to go are either Hunters or Toucans. Hunters is a larger club. Toucans is the friendlier one. Either place will have a decent crowd after 10 pm on Fridays and Saturdays.
Email me directly if you have any questions I can help with. We love our tourists and are readily available for advice when asked.
And, by the way, the days will probably be in the 80s in early April, so don't forget your sunblock!
