Planning Your Trip
Well, of course the easiest way for many folks to arrive to Indian Wells for the BNP Paribas Open is to flying into Palm Springs International Airport (yup -- international). It's a small but beautiful airport with everything you could want. Major carriers bring flights in from other California airports as well as Seattle, Texas, Arizona, Canada and beyond. If you're flying but can't get into Palm Springs directly, then Ontario and Orange County/John Wayne are your next best bets. You can also arrive via LAX or San Diego. All of these choices will require a rental car and a little bit of a drive, but not too bad if the airfare warrants.
Palm Springs is right off of the I-10 Freeway for those driving into town.
The weather is generally very comfortable. The mornings and evenings tend to be nice and cool and then heat up into the high 80's and even 90's, so be preapared for the heat. Bring a hat and your sunscreen, and drink plenty of water.
