IMPORTANT QUESTION: What is your favorite thing about summer in the Coachella Valley?

The Important Question is a recurring thing we do on Fridays here at Cactus Hugs to get input on food, places, and things in the Coachella Valley from the people who know it best: you!  Brought to you by Riviera Palm Springs

Alright, I know we are in for a bunch of sarcastic responses based on the headline, but hear me out.

Yes, summertime in the Coachella Valley is mostly awful with the heat and the never ending road work and the electric company doing blackouts and all the hikers dying and did I mention the heat?  But, there are some good things about the summer.

You can find a ton of good deals around town, you can get to where you are going on Highway 11 faster (even with all the damn roadwork), and there’s usually less than 10 Canadians in front of you buying fiber pills and Seagram’s gin at Costco.

Now these are just a few of the good things about summer in the Greater Palm Springs area.  Surely, there are many more – so let’s discuss in the comments.
