Palm Springs: A great gay weekend trip or a week's vacation

I'll be in Palm Springs this weekend
my friends and I won a house for the weekend - super nice
any recommendations
fun bars? fun restaurants? cool coffee houses?
any cool dives? swank cocktail lounges? & the like
or any good places to hike - especially with some water or place to swim
thanks all

Many of the gay hotels and resorts have some type of day pass - -although the place you're staying may actually be much nicer. It's just that some of them are clothing optional, or have 'special sex zones' (sauna, backroom, and hidden garden or sunning areas where guys cruise for sex and engage in it). CCBC (Cathedral City Boys Club) has a nice pool and jacuzzi area, and also it's own brand of sex zone, and the infamous walk. There is a day pass rate for pool only guests.
But it depends on who is there and day and time. If there's some gay event going on in PS on the weekend, then it's likely to be busy and have lots of naked men in and out of the pool.

Outside the city, there are some nice hiking areas, but I've only been led there and can't recall how to get there myself.
Use the Net to find more general info on the 29 Palms area or the Joshua Tree National Monument (I think it's about 1 hour's drive or less from PS.) Of course, there's the famous gondola up the mountain just northwest of the city.

if you like steaks, try "the falls".

excellent food. we brought our own wine, (we had just been to napa) and the corkage fee was quite reasonable.

If you have more time, I recommend driving over to see the Salton Sea (I'm not sure you can swim in it since it always seems to have dead fish and smells like brine.) But there is a State park on the eastern side for the Sea. If you head back eastward from the Salton Sea (State Hwy 22) you can also visit the Anza-Borrego State Park, the largest state park in CA (and one of the largest in the US (other than national parks). It has some great hiking spot not far from Borrego Springs), and should still be plenty warm to do them naked - if you feel brave enough. (I have done so -- for at least a few miles).

Heading further east toward San Diego is Julian, a little country-style alpine town, complete with antique shops, restaurants and sort of a cowboy (hickville) atmosphere. There is Cuyamaca State Park further inland, heading towards San Deigo.

(The last few recommended spots may be completely out of your travel plan - distance wise). So do your homework ... a bit more.

Enjoy .. Wish I was there ( again)...

OK Guys. Remember this weekend is Pride Weekend and the town will be packed. Make sure you make reservation ASAP.

There will be lines of people waiting to get in the the gay bars.

We have always enjoyed dinner at
Davey's Hideaway Restaurant‎
292 East Palm Canyon Drive
Palm Springs, CA 92264-8824
(760) 320-4480

If you have never been here that the Tram to the top of the mountain, there is hiking up there and a beautiful view of PS. Just dress warm, it is 30 deg cooler up there.

There are 40+ gay resorts around most have day passes and are clothing optional (LOL).

Have fun

The hot/new place in town is LuLu, at South Palm Canyon and Arenas (one block over from PS's little "gay strip"). Good food, cute waiters, fun ambiance. Koffi is always busy, both "old" Koffi (N. Palm Canyon, just north of Alejo; hang out in back by the lawn) or "new" Koffi, on E. Palm Canyon, across from the old Biltmore.
Toucan's is consistently voted one of PS's best dive/tiki bars, although Sunday night is the big event (drag show...it draws hundreds, and a very mixed crowd. Get there at 7:30 for the 8:00 show, or be prepared to wait in a VERY long line). A lot of people also like Trio either for the bar or restaurant, though I think it's overpriced for what you get.
The leather scene, such as it is, is focused at the Barracks in Cathedral City, or to a lesser degree, the Toolshed on Sunny Dunes. Not to be missed: Sunday afternoon at Barracks! Basically any time after about 4.
Check on Adam4Adam (dot com) if you want to know about sex parties. And ask me which ones are more recommended!
