When to go
Winter is the most popular time to visit, when temperatures hover around the mid-20s. Summer is best avoided unless you like sweltering heat.
PlanesMost international jet setters fly into Los Angeles, then make the two-and-a-half hour drive to Indian Wells. The other option is to fly into Palm Springs, which can be reached directly from LA, San Francisco and New York JFK. It takes about half an hour to drive from the airport to Indian Wells. The Smith24 team can arrange your flights and transfers; call anytime.
AutomobilesUnless you’re planning on sticking to the center of town, having your own set of wheels will come in handy, as the distances between nearby towns and cities make driving essential (and the heat makes walking uncomfortable).
