Escape to the sunshine and enjoy golfing, local spas, delicious restaurants, shopping, and all kinds of attractions in the Great Palm Springs area.

If you are planning a trip to Indio, keep these packing tips in mind. Packing Tips for a Vacation to Indio
1. Bring sun protection
You will want to have plenty of sun protection on hand in Indio, including sunscreen and UV-blocking clothing. Bring a hat and lightweight, breathable clothing if you plan to do any hiking, golfing, or exploring. Remember, Indio is a dessert with intense sunlight and nothing ruins a vacation like a dreaded sunburn.
2. Choose a place with a full kitchen and plenty to do
The place you choose to stay will make or break your trip. One of our best packing tips is to find a vacation rental that allows you to pack less because it offers a fully equipped kitchen and plenty to do.
At The Brooklyn Penthouse, you will find plenty of space to comfortably accommodate your group, with 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. The property has it all, including:
- 40 foot saltwater pool with tanning ledges
- Outdoor kitchen including a pizza oven and grill
- Fully equipped gourmet kitchen inside
- Outdoor HDTV and lawn games
- Movie theater
3. Pack for hot days and cool nights
Checking the weather before you pack should go without saying, but keep in mind that in Indio it is common to have super hot days and breezy nights. Pack with a dessert climate in mind and bring lightweight layers so you can stay comfortable any time.
4. Use the capsule wardrobe strategy
Limit the amount you need to pack by adopting a capsule wardrobe strategy. Look for things that mix and match well, choosing a suitcase full of colors and prints that go well together. This will limit the amount you need to pack and make getting dressed a snap each day.
5. Choose wrinkle-proof, breathable fabrics
The last thing you want to do on vacation is laundry and ironing. Choose fabrics that are either wrinkle proof, or look fine wrinkled (like linen). Breathable fabrics like linen, cotton, and performance athletic wear will be your most comfortable and low-maintenance options on a trip to Indio.
6. Pack your packing list
We all know that frustrating feeling of getting home from a trip and realizing you left something behind. Avoid a stressed scramble to make sure you are bringing everything home by packing your packing list. Make sure the list includes everything you pack, adding items you grab at the last second, too.
This way, the packing list works in reverse as you pack up to head home. Check your list to make sure everything made it back into your suitcase for peace of mind.
