Random Facts About Palm Springs
For a bit of history, visit the historic city of Palm Springs and explore its history. There are many museums and art galleries to explore. The town was once populated by the Rat Pack, which included Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., and the legendary Elvis Presley. You can find black-and-white photos of the King at the museum, which also has good food and live music.
There are many golf courses in the region. The Coachella Valley has more golf courses than any other region in the state, making it one of the most popular golf vacation destinations in the state. Palm Springs’ early courses included the O’Donnell Golf Club, which was built by oil magnate Thomas A. O’Donnell, and the El Mirador Hotel, which opened in the 1920s. Another golf course, Thunderbird Country Club, opened in Rancho Mirage in 1951. It was designed by Lawrence Hughes and Johnny Dawson. It hosted the 11th Ryder Cup championship in 1955.
After World War II, Palm Springs became a popular destination for Hollywood stars. The city’s proximity to Los Angeles made it attractive to movie stars who wanted to get away from the spotlight. It was a more puritanical time in America, and Hollywood stars were under constant surveillance. A single scandal involving an extramarital affair or even homosexuality could send a star into the rags. The power of gossip columnists was undeniable and their readers were millions. During this time, Palm Springs was an ideal place to escape from all this.
