Palm Springs, CA

Palm Springs

History of the area / Neighborhood overview


Located within the Coachella Valley in California, Palm Springs has quickly become a hotspot for tourism and a happening place to buy or rent. Due to the desert and mountains surrounding the area, there is ample opportunity for recreational activities, including biking, golfing, hiking, horseback riding, swimming, and tennis. 

The city’s attractive mid-century modern architecture and design, along with its burgeoning art and cultural scenes and growing nightlife, has made living in Palm Springs one of our favorite places in California. Not to mention, the city is also only about 110 miles southwest of the metropolitan area of Los Angeles. 

There are 33 neighborhoods within Palm Springs, several of which have important cultural and historical significance. Designers and historians alike are ensuring the preservation of many buildings and homes that belong to, or have once belonged to, celebrities, businessmen, and politicians. 

The population is about 45,000, but this number doubles in the winter season, no doubt due to the 360 days of sunshine and the dry desert heat. Palm Springs is constantly growing and evolving. The downtown area is seeing more and more hotels, restaurants, shops, boutiques, and entertainment venues. It’s a place for both celebrating and relaxing, as long as you’re enjoying yourself.
