The population of Palm Springs was 44,575 as of the 2020 census, but because Palm Springs is a retirement location and a winter snowbird destination, the city's population triples between November and March.[7]

The city is noted for its mid-century modern architecture, design elements, arts and cultural scene, and recreational activities.[8]
