ROADRUNNERS AND MOUNTAIN VIEWS: We've wavered before on our favorite Two Bunch Palms feature. Is it the Desert Hot Springs property's postcard vista of San Jacinto? Or those curious roadrunners that dart around the resort's edges? Both. A roadrunner darting *in front* of San Jacinto would be perfection.
ROLLING RATE SALE: It's on right now at Two Bunch Palms, and by "right now" we mean Wednesday, Aug. 18. Book a room (through the end of September) on Aug. 18, get 50% off; Aug. 19, get 35% off; Aug. 20, get 25% off. The quicker you act, the more you save.
