Why It's Worth It

Visitors and long-time residents alike are mesmerized by the towering San Jacinto Mountains that form the western boundary of Palm Springs, California. They stand guard over a city that's infused with the charm of an earlier era, its neighborhoods lined with iconic Spanish and midcentury modern architecture, yet strikingly modern as reflected in the new 13-acre Downtown Development. Add in the stunning natural setting and you just might think you've stumbled into a desert Xanadu. —Lawrence Karol
