Welcome to Palm Springs, CA

Palm Springs, CA, located approximately 107 miles east of Los Angeles, has a history full of Hollywood pizzazz. The city’s first claim to fame happened in 1909, when Dr. Harry and Nellie Coffman opened The Desert Inn. The inn actually started out as a sanatorium for tuberculosis patients, but later became a world class resort hotel that attracted wealthy clients such as the Vanderbilt and Hearst families. As early as 1919, Palm Springs became a setting for many Hollywood silent films, and eventually the town became famous for its celebrity visitors, such as Frank Sinatra, Clark Gable, Lucille Ball, and Shirley Temple. The city was once referred to as “The Playground of the Stars” due to the large number of celebrities that visited or lived there at that time.

Possibly the feature of Palm Springs that attracts millions of visitors and potential residents every year is its weather and natural beauty. Palm Springs, situated in the Colorado Desert, has nearly 350 days of sunshine a year, which allows its residents to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities all year round. Mt. San Jacinto, rising at 10,831 feet, serves as the backdrop to the city. The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway allows you to travel 8,500 ft. up the mountain, giving you breathtaking views of the city and surrounding area.

Although Palm Springs still has a reputation as a getaway spot for the stars, many regular citizens--allured by the recreational atmosphere and big-city amenities--choose to make Palm Springs their home.
