Closed for August vacation

Life in Palm Springs has a certain rhythm to it, influenced by the calendar and climate.

The hottest time of the year is, of course, summer. Average highs during July and August exceed 105°F. During the summer months, things slow down: many seek cooler climes, tourists are scared away by reports of 115° temperatures, or higher, and accordingly some of the businesses simply close for all or part of the month and take vacation. How very European!
