If you're stuck in Palm Springs looking for something to do, try this. The ride takes about 10 minutes, is 2.5 miles long, and goes up about 6,000 vertical feet. The top of the tram is at 8500 feet. As you go up, the interior of the tram rotates, so by standing in one spot you rotate completely around two or three times and get views up, down and to the sides of the canyon. The whole thing is quite an engineering feat and pretty impressive, although people with acrophobia may not be so happy. There are hiking trails at the top, but be warned...even in summer it can be windy and cold at the top. Not surprisingly, ticket prices are high...$26 per adult.
