We stopped in after our trip up the Tram. It is right at the turn off off Highway 111. They have a lot of information and some very committed volunteers who have a a lot of knowledge/years. If you are an architectural fan I think that the $5 that they charge for the map or the app of the show... More

We stopped here to pick up the tour map of Albert Frey designed homes. The cost for themap is $5.00 and includes many homes ~ Frey & others that are fine examples of Mid-century Modern design. Don't bother to drive to the southern ones on the map. All are in a gated community that is closed to visitors We also... More

The visitors center is in an architecturally significant building, designed by Albert Frey, that serves as an excellent welcome post to mid-century modern Palm Springs. The staff are very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. They have information on tours, sites, hotels, and events: desert trails, celebrity tours, modernism architecture -- they know it all. You'll be glad you stopped in. We... More

... on our way into town and I'm glad that it was! I found the staff very helpful and they had plenty of literature/pamphlets to helps us get around the area. I never felt like they were trying to 'sell' us on the area -- just be helpful. I was thankful that they told us about the special Thursday Night... More

As you enter Palm Springs you need to stop at the Visitor Center. It was originally a gas station that was designed by Albert Frey the grandfather of modernism. Here you can pick up information. Don't forget to ask for the Palm Springs Historical Society Walking Tours. They have 8 walking tours that cover the history, stars and architecture of... More

These guys know their Palm Springs and how to sell it. They will offer ideas on what to see and do. There's also lots of pamphlets and coupons available inside. The Agua Caliente representative was helpful as well. I learned there about the PS Modern app for my phone and have really put that to use.

The intent of this place is just to sell goods and souvenirs to provide income for the City of Palm Spring. Not a place for information but a trap to sell goods. You might as well go to the AAA and the public library for information or the sourrounding shops for goodies. I went there to ask information about how... More

The self-guided driving tour of celebrity homes is a great way to spend a couple of hours. For about five dollars you can see (or almost see behind the huge hedges) 60+ homes. The map is good, but co-pilot is important so you don't miss the turns. The map is not to scale, but the addresses will keep you on... More
