Palm Springs


California

Palm Springs in a nutshell

Palm Springs is the jewel among desert cities and rightly so. Its village atmosphere has been preserved and embellished over the years. The downtown area with its quaint lampposts, benches and Mexican tile-paved enclaves invites strolling among the shops, galleries, eateries and coffeehouses. Rich in history and blessed with glorious weather, it is a prime destination  of travelers from all over the world.

So many luminaries made the desert their home. Some have made an especially indelible contribution—Frank Sinatra, Dinah Shore, Sonny Bono, Bob Hope, George Montgomery, Kirk Douglas, Ambassador Walter Annenberg and so many more whose generosity is legend. A new generation of Hollywood hit-makers has succumbed to the lure of the desert and the relaxing privacy it offers. Now Palm Springs is being rediscovered by today’s generation of Hollywood stars. Unlike their predecessors this new breed of star prefers the private quiet of the desert and it’s many walled estates to the public nightlife that those early pioneers enjoyed. And in Palm Springs that quest for privacy is universally respected despite the occasional star sighting in the supermarket, restaurant, or boutique.
