This residential area was home to movie stars. Lots of estates that range from 2 to 4 acres of land. The historical society offers two walking tours of this area that are fabulous. The tours are called the Golden Era of Hollywood Homes on Wed. and the Rat Pack Neighborhood on Tues. They are loaded with tons of fun information... More

This is our second-favorite neighborhood in Palm Springs. The grand old Spanish homes on huge lots probably date back to the 30's and 40's. It is quite traditional. Some of these homes sit on larger lots and are more grand than those in the Tennis Club District. It is quite far from the main strip action on Palm Canyon Drive.... More

Great place for a walk. Unfortunately, many homes are hidden. By Very.High.Hedges. Kinda ruins the "great place for a walk" vibe.

The Las Palmas neighborhood is a good reminder that, in Palm Springs' case, "playground of the stars" was once taken literally. Nestled beneath the mountain in a lush garden of palm trees, jacaranda and bougainvillea, the neighborhood is a treasure-trove of lovely Spanish and mid-century homes that were the weekend getaways of Hollywood A-Listers in the halcyon days of the...

It can be confusing, but as a resident of Vista Las Palmas I wanted to point out the distinction. Las Palmas is the more eastern neighborhood, populated with larger individually built homes More of the estate variety behind gates Vista Las Palmas begins after you cross Monte Vista, going West. These are largely Alexander tract homes built in the early... More

Some of the most stunning examples of mid-century architecture are found in this one little neighborhood. We drove it, as it was a very hot day, but then I did a morning run the next day and got to go back and see them again. There is also a bike trail that goes through the streets, guiding you with signs.... More

The best days of Palm Springs are long past, but the homes of the rich and famous from the 40's, 50's and 60's are worth the trip. Located just north of downtown Palm Springs these homes are easy to spot, especially if you download a map. Many are secluded, but some real unusual ones (Liberace's guest house) are easily seen....
