Take a stroll through Old Las Palmas to a bygone era when Hollywood Royalty flocked to Palm Springs to frolic and play without the oversight of the movie studios. Then go west, to Vista Las Palmas - playground the rat pack in their mid century modern homes.

Basically whether in the car or on foot, just go and get lost window shopping for houses on this estate. Leading unto to Elvis' honeymoon suit along Cam Sur you will find some achingly hip houses that'll make you go running back to your boss asking for a pay rise. Do respect the owners though as these are all residential... More

I always take visitors around this neighborhood for many reasons. This is where Elvis, Fran Sinatra and many of the old stars all had homes. New ones are rediscovering it and moving there now, like Leonardo Di-DiCaprio. Worth a drive around and look for sure.

If you want to see an entire neighborhood with restored, renewed and rebuilt Mid-Century modern homes, then take a trip to the Las Palmas neighborhood in Palm Springs! The homes are fab, the colors are total eye-candy. You won't know which house to look at first. Since it is not gated, you can bike it, walk it or drive it.... More

This is the lifestyle of the very rich and famous neighborhood. What you can see of these homes behind the gates and hedges is amazing. Take a stroll and imagine the glamour behind the gates.

Definitely old Palm Springs with big houses and walled estates. Close to downtown. Best if you can do as part of a walking tour and get a bit of the inside story.

Old Las Palmas in Palm Springs is a great FREE adventure. You just leisurely drive in/around the many winding residential streets where each turn presents you with mid-century modernism. Additionally, you could create an entire photo album just on the doors built into some of the many walls surrounding certain properties. That said, there are lots of properties completely open...

Stayed in a really cool rental in old last palmas. Quiet location with wonderful saltwater pool and spa. Beautiful landscaping and modern architecture. Fruit trees on property. Lovely caretaker who kept us informed and safe. I would seek this location again.

This was the original upscale residential district of Palm Springs. Has homes owned by Rock Hudson, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Liberace. Emphasis on privacy for residences. For observant Jews most of Las Palmas is within walking distance of Temple Isaiah Jewish Community Center
