Palm Springs, CA

Marilyn came to unwind. Frank, Dean and Sammy came to play. Elvis and Priscilla came for their honeymoon. Bob Hope made it the center of the American golf circuit. Today's stars are rediscovering this oasis, and "America's Desert Playground" is also the playground of the otherwise well-to-do and a host of other discerning, sun-lovers from around the world. This world-class resort city in welcomes all to its warm sands and relaxed, village atmosphere. Rich in history and blessed with some of the finest weather in the world, Palm Springs is the ancestral home of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians. This allure for nature lovers remains unmistakable, from a simple hike or a peaceful picnic by a stream to an adventurous jeep excursion or horseback ride deep into the canyons.

Downtown is where the social action is. A stroll on Palm Canyon Drive offers shops, galleries, and coffee houses. Just down the street is the historic Plaza Theater, the scene of many of Jack Benny radio broadcasts as well as a Hollywood premier or two. Today it is the home of The Fabulous Palm Springs Follies, which stars top entertainers and long-legged lovelies all over 50 years of age! The mission-style architecture throughout the village is a big part of an ambiance that's sophisticated yet playful. Outdoor activities year-round, great views, and a mountaintop restaurant put this excursion at the top of every favorites list. It isn't just golfers who get into the swing of things at Palm Springs!
