Why Palm Springs is Hollywood of the Desert

Palm Springs Postcard

As early as the 1920s, Palm Springs has been a getaway spot for Hollywood stars. Garbo, Clark Gable, Alice Faye, Phil Harris, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bob Hope, Liberace, Walt Disney, Loretta Young, Marilyn Monroe, Kirk Douglas, and many other classic Hollywood stars have stayed and played in Palm Springs. This YouTube video, "Why Palm Springs is Hollywood of the Desert," highlights some of Palm Springs Hollywood connections, including the site of Ginger Rogers' wedding and the room where Frank Capra polished the screenplay for It's a Wonderful Life.

Nice clip. Enjoyed it. We love to stay at The Georgian Hotel in Santa Monica. Rumor has it that Gable and Lombard used to tryst there, secretly :)

My husband and I just stayed at the La Quinta resort this week! I love the desert cities. The resort is gorgeous and the rates were only $99 for a weeknight. Of course it was 110 outside, so I guess that was the trade off for such a nice resort. I highly recommend it ~ we can't wait to go back again with our kids. :)
