John Barrowman, the Doctor Who and Torchwood actor and singer, shares his favourite haunts in Palm Springs, California
Why Palm Springs?
It’s got fabulous weather year round. Even when it’s just mild and cool in Los Angeles, it’s warm and sunny in Palm Springs. But it’s a dry heat and not humid, so you never have a bad hair day. And no matter where you are in the city, you get a view of one of the biggest mountains in the San Jacinto mountain range. Its airport is set in the middle of the city with everything being less than 10 minutes away. There’s something for everyone – multiple golf courses, mountain biking, hiking, the tram, great restaurants and shops.
