Do

Fast and furious, dune buggy stylePalm Springs, USA

Mention Palm Springs and most people think of swimming pools and the city’s proximity to music festival behemoth, Coachella. But there’s lots more to do out here than soak up the rays in an itty-bitty bikini or rave out in the desert.

An excellent way to burn a few hours is to rent an ATV and tear up some of the mountainous sand dunes that loom just outside the city (it’s on private land, so you don’t even need a license). These four-wheelers are fun, fast and just about anyone can do it.


get there

From Los Angeles take the Interstate 10 Freeway towards Palm Springs, exit at Highway 111 and Offroad Rentals is about five kilometres away on the right.

US$40 for 45 minutes (longer if you follow the rules)
