Modern Travel of Palm Springs is a new concept from well known San Francisco travel agency owner and full time Palm Springs resident – since late 2019 – Josh Friedman

For information on our events as we create them, please click here & for all destination posts either browse the categories on this page or scroll here.

My idea in starting modern travel of palm springs was to create a community of locals, their friends and out of towners who identify with the Palm Springs spirit: inclusive, fun, adventurous, accepting.  And who would on occasion want to travel together – say on a small group tour or on a snazzy cruise. And at other times, like one normally would, plan travel with partners, friends or solo.

At this stage in our lives in palm springs my husband John and I wanted to enjoy the camaraderie in travel that we’ve found so desirable living here in the desert – going out, enjoying ourselves, meeting LGBTQ people + cool allies from all over the country & the world, and learning about everybody’s life experiences. Who knew that at 60 we could meet all types of people we’ve never met before – it’s fantastic!

As a travel advisor and cruise line insider for almost all of my career (since 1981), I have traveled with John to exciting places across the globe:  italy & europe, australia, patagonia and buenos aires, africa, canada, mexico and around the mediterranean, the caribbean and the baltic.

I see the direction of this company coming from the input  of the people we meet and their friends. Please join us.
