Las Vegas may have the market cornered when it comes to being a gambling oasis in the desert, but Palm Springs has attracted a different kind of shimmer: that of the Hollywood star. Since the 1950s, this area has been a retreat for actors, directors, screenwriters, and more. Let Mr. DeMille know you’re ready for your close-up while sipping cocktails beneath mid-century architecture, or plant yourself firmly in the city’s more modern culture, which opens its arms to all who would enjoy a (literally) warm welcome, from retirees escaping Los Angeles, to LGBT residents flying pride flags high, to naturists with seamless tans. Meet them all while staying in one of our Palm Springs vacation rentals.
If lounging poolside decked out in fabulous swimwear while tapping your toes to Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Elvis sounds like a great way to start your getaway, you’re right. The city’s retro-chic vibe inspired a second wave of hip youngsters to vacation here in the ’90s, and that wave seems to keep flowing. A laid-back atmosphere makes it easy for desert-lovers of all ages to comfortably mingle while admiring local art, attending the international film festival, or shopping ’til dropping at tons of outlet stores. And the golf? Simply world-class.
How might a local enjoy it all? Right from their own home base in the city, of course. Book one of our vacation rentals and enjoy classic black-and-white checkerboard tile from your own private kitchen or wake up to golf course views. For the best of both local and resort life, La Quinta Condo with Privileges by RedAwning could be just the place for you.
