It was the “The Atomic Age” and Palm Springs captured the futuristic mood like no other place on earth. Nestled in the foothills of the San Jacinto Mountains is this famed Palms Springs Tennis Club Neighborhood. This area has an eclectic mix of boutique hotels and private sanctuaries that became hideaways for the stars like Errol Flynn, Lucille Ball, Doris Day and Gloria Swanson. Today Hollywood hipsters like Robert Downey Jr. and Reese Witherspoon enjoy these unique resorts.
See close-up the inns and resorts that were, and remain today, havens for the stars. Many were designed and built after WWII when America’s appetite for Modern design was the rage.
