Palm Springs Is the Place to Be

We’re all in need of a little vacation, and Palm Springs seems like the place to be.

The Taxicab, Limousine & Paratransit Association’s Spring Conference & Expo, held in conjunction with the Taxicab Paratransit Association of California’s Annual Meeting, will take place at the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa from April 25 to 28. It’s TLPA’s first meeting of the year, and President Bill Scalzi, the TLPA leadership, and TPAC want you to be there.

While the conference will have tons of useful information to help you run a better business, Palm Springs, California, is a sun-drenched oasis. We’ve done the legwork for you and checked out the must-sees in Palm Springs, so all you have to do is book your flight.


It would be hard to ignore the incredible golf courses in Palm Springs. In fact, the hotel boasts a premiergoal course. You can play 36 holes of championship golf, and both courses have been ranked among the top courses you can play in all of California.

Get Outdoors

The hotel is beautiful, but if you feel like getting outdoorsy on your trip, the Palm Springs area has plentiful opportunities for just that. The Indian Canyons are great for hiking, and you can check out more here.

BMW Performance Driving School

Our industry is full of driving, but it’s got nothing on the BMW performance drivingschool. Here, you can hop into a BMW and take it for a spin on a racetrack south of Palm Springs. These high-speed driving classes, offered year-round, let you push these vehicles to the limit in a safe environment. You can take these vehicles on an off-road course and take a hot lap on fast straightaways.


Every Thursday night in Palm Springs, vendors crowd the street for a nighttime street fair of arts, crafts, foods and entertainment called VillageFest. You’ll find all sorts of great stuff here, like good food, fun jewelry, and a blues CD from a local band.

Incredible Food

Palm Springs has its own unique food scene you have to check out. Whether you’re into steaks, poolside dining, or a combination of the two, this California city has it all. Here’s a cool list of restaurants to check out.

If you haven’t registered for the conference yet, we’re hoping to see you there! Registration is open, and you can find more information here.
