7. Create your own days of thunder behind the wheel in California
You’re not Tom Cruise and this isn’t Daytona 500, but the Ritz-Carlton, Ranchero Mirage is offering guests the next best thing at the new BMW Performance Driving School. Just seven miles from Palm Springs International Airport and nestled between the rugged Santa Rosa Mountain range, the Ritz-Carlton has partnered with the highly exclusive, invite-only Thermal Club—home to a 1.6 mile road course that’s begging you to burn rubber in a high performance BMW M Series. Let your lead foot hit the gas—under the supervision of a pro driving instructor, of course—and see how well you can navigate at top speeds as part of this once-in-a-lifetime luxury desert experience.
$399 per night in February and $459 per night in March, not including driving school, ritzcarlton.com
