Visit the Visitor's Center!

Nice small gift shop and make sure to get a map of the mid-century gems of homes in the area. Really nice staff, too.

So cool and modern. This used to be the original Palm Springs gas station, right when you enter PS next to the tram way road.

A great place to start your visit as every question you might have will be answered with great directions to where ever you are going. Lots of brochures and gifts to buy. Recommend taking the Self Guided Tour of the Map of the Stars' Homes. Truly amazing homes to see.

If you are not familiar with the area this should be your first stop on the way to your hotel. They have a lot of information and the building is an old gas station remodeled.

Upon arrival, the building and architecture are wonderful .. The restrooms are clean and the center is located at the bottom of the Arial Tram road. Unfortunately, there are two desks at the center. This is a visitor center and a lets make money center. The Visitor Center person, barely looked up, We had to ask if the maps sitting... More
