I spent the first week of 2017 touring about Palm Springs.  It is a fantastic town full of amazing mid-century architecture, stunning views and wonderful people.

I snapped this pic from the parking lot at the Palm Springs Visitors Center.  The landscape is other worldly.

It was so great curling up with a book at night in front of a warm fire.

The Palm Springs Art Museum surpassed my expectations.

Chihuly

I loved their piece by Dale Chihuly.

Desert Hills

My hotel was in the Historic Tennis Club District and each building was just as beautiful as the next one.

A-frame

There were so many amazing antique and vintage shops.  I spotted this A-frame architect’s model at Stewart Galleries.

When this is the exterior, you need to stop and pay a visit to Dazzles.

the hideaway

I had a chance to pop into my hotel’s other location, The Hideaway, and loved their lounge.

bye bye palm springs

I really can’t wait to visit Palm Springs again as I felt that I only saw a snippet of this great town. I did take an amazing architecture tour but really wish I had the chance to walk around those communities as there is just so much to see.
