There is just something about Palm Springs that restores my soul. Between the history of the town, the beauty of the desert and mountains, and the drive you make to get there, I am always in a good mood driving into town. Palm Springs is the perfect distance from Los Angeles and San Diego: just far enough away that people won’t invite themselves but close enough that you can leave at a moment’s notice. When looking for a place to stay during a Southern California road trip to Palm Springs we knew we wanted to stay a nice hotel...

At a blogger event earlier this month, Busy Bee Blogger got to see the newest menu items and a peek at the NEW Rubio’s Coastal Grill. All overseen and...
