Make a vacation rental in Idyllwild, USA your home away from home

Idyllwild self-catering vacation rentals are found in California’s Riverside County, amid the San Jacinto Mountains, which are located towards the south of the state. It’s a destination known for its considerable natural beauty, with a wide range of activities and experiences are on offer throughout the year.

Things to do in Idyllwild, USA

Despite becoming an important hub for visitors to the San Jacinto Mountains, the town around Idyllwild self-catering condos has retained a homely, small-town character – with a range of independent, family-run shops and restaurants. The surrounding terrain is rugged, with thick pine forest and a variety of unusual and impressive geological features. The reason most holidaymakers head for the town is to set off and enjoy the spectacular local scenery on foot. The landscapes in the area are protected as part of the San Jacinto State Park and the San Bernardino National Forest. On a wider scale, the Pacific Crest Trail, which spans the length of the western United States, passes by, just a few miles from the town. One enjoyable route is to walk east from your self-catering cabin in Idyllwild to the town of Palm Springs, around 10 miles away. Also in the area is Tahquitz Peak, which can be reached within two hours on foot, and boasts a lookout tower offering sublime views at its summit. Another route, and a slightly more taxing excursion, is San Jacinto Peak, which requires a round-trip of around eight hours but is well worth the walk for its unforgettable scenery. Meanwhile, the spectacular rockforms around Idyllwild also provide excellent terrain for climbing, with a number of options close by. Suicide Rock and Tahquitz Rock offer a range of different climbs with varying levels of difficulty.

Places to visit on holiday in Idyllwild, USA

The resort of Palm Springs is around 45 minutes in the car from vacation accommodation in Idyllwild. There are a host of different things to see and do here, from visiting the numerous art galleries, to gaming at the casinos or enjoying a round of golf at one of the many excellent courses in the area.
