The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway is amazing. It slowly rotates. The restaurant at the top was okay but the view all the way up is amazing. Prepare or a fair amount of climbing from the parking lot to the top.

Fun outing - the tramway rotates so it allows views from all angles to the passengers. There are options to dine on top (casual or smart) and you can buy your tickets accordingly.
