Palm Springs is a desert oasis unlike any other. Set in at the foot of the San Jacinto mountains, this modern and vibrant city has been a playground for Hollywood for more than half a century. In the early 20th century, those looking for a healthy climate made their way to Palm Springs because of the city’s dry heat and luxurious resort hotels. Today, there is an eclectic food and drinks scene, and booming downtown, endless outdoor activities, and a thriving diverse community. Palm Springs is also home to one of the largest collections of Mid-century Modern architecture in the world. The weather is usually warm and sunny, so come prepared to relax and enjoy yourself when not taking part in the city’s many cultural activities. Though many come to Palm Springs just to sit by the pool with a cocktail in hand, Palm Springs travel offers much more than just that. Read our Palm Springs travel stories and guides to help plan your next trip.

A little slice of Mexico at Las Casuelas Terraza

  • Posted by Apr 30, 2019

By Kevin Perry Love and sustenance go hand in hand. They nurture us, give us purpose, and provide us the strength we need to conquer the world outside of our immediate circle of relatives. Family feeds us, in more ways than one. Some restaurants tout their commitment to heritage, but Las Casuelas Terraza lives it. During our brief conversation with the legendary eatery’s operator, Patrick Service, he interrupts himself abruptly to make sure…

One weekend Liz and Mark, owners of Tac/Quila, took a short break from life as lawyers and decided to dream a little. We brainstormed, reminisced, reflected and projected, all with a goal of discovering where our dreams intersected. It was clear after a while that our life change would involve hospitality. We love people and their stories, and nothing brings people together like a great meal in a memorable setting. Our first restaurant [ad]…

By Kevin Perry She’s an Oscar winner, a living legend, and perhaps most notable of all: she was fortunate enough to employ The Tropicale’s Tony Di Lembo as her personal chef.  When asked to describe Barbra Streisand, Di Lembo beams, “She’s a fascinating lady. She was a tough woman to work for; she was a perfectionist, as you might think. She knew what she liked to eat. It was actually kinda simple because I knew what she liked. You just kinda…

By Barbara Beckley “Stewards of Palm Springs’ architectural and hospitality history.” That’s how fashionistas-turned boutique hotel moguls Lars and Kelly Viklund describe their pride in breathing new life and luxury into three vintage inns in Downtown Palm Springs.    As with so many Palm Springs success stories, the Viklunds didn’t set out to be hoteliers.

By Kevin Perry For as long as humankind has lived indoors, we have been fascinated with architecture. The curve of a rooftop, the flow of a corridor, the towering triumph of the walls that surround us – these are the hallmarks of who we are and what we aspire to be. And for Mod Squad owner Kurt Cyr, the love of architecture begins at home. “Our first house in 1999 was one of the last Alexanders,” he reminisces. “I just knew that we wanted…
