Random Facts About Palm Springs
Palm Springs is home to several museums that are worth visiting. One is the Cabot’s Museum, which melds history with inspiration. It was built in an authentic Hopi-style pueblo and features artwork and artifacts from Alaska Native and American Indian cultures. It also has memorabilia from early desert homestead life.
Palm Springs was also a popular refuge for Hollywood stars, who sought privacy in the desert. Hollywood had been under a constant veil of publicity in the 1930s, and even a hint of extramarital affairs or homosexuality could land a star in the rags. The power of gossip columnists was immense, and their readers were millions. The resorts in Palm Springs were therefore seen as a refuge from the stifling scrutiny and pressure of Hollywood.
The Cahuilla people named Palm Springs Se-Khi, which means “boiling water.” Today, you can see petroglyphs in the Tahquitz Canyon and Indian Canyon. Andreas Canyon also has pictographs and mortar holes that were used by the Cahuillas to grind acorns into flour.
Another popular outdoor attraction in Palm Springs is the San Jacinto State Park, which is located east of the I-10 freeway. The park has mountainous scenery, desert plants, and plenty of hiking trails. In addition to hiking, you can camp here or even go horseback riding.
