Love Where You Live: Palm Springs

Greater Palm Springs, or the Coachella Valley as it is known to its residents, has a rich history dating back generations with the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians. Its 1960’s status as the playground of the stars continues today while establishing itself as one of Southern California’s most attractive destinations with year-round sunshine and idyllic quality of life. If you like lots of sun, luxurious country clubs, hiking trails and spectacular sunsets, you’ll fall in love with Palm Springs and the surrounding area. The beauty of the San Jacinto mountains and laid-back, welcoming area makes life feel like a vacation at every price point.
