palm dessert

Located just fourteen miles from Palm Springs at the foot of the Santa Rosa Mountains, Palm Desert in the Coachella Valley is one of our favorite California desert cities. The landscape is exotic, sunsets are spectacular, golf is one of the favorite outdoor activities, and the cuisine is incredible. That’s not really a surprise when one considers all the years the Hollywood elite would escape the business and paparazzi of Los Angeles, and head to the more remote California desert. Film stars, along with U.S. politicians and world leaders, loved the anonymity this region provided.
