Quick & Easy L.A. Getaways - The Hollywood/Palm Springs Connection

Quick & Easy L.A. Getaways - The Hollywood/Palm Springs Connection

 Hollywood sign 

Since the 1920's, Hollywood stars have been escaping the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles to seek the peacefulness and tranquility of Palm Springs and the other desert cities. Many celebrities have purchased homes in the area, where they have enjoyed the relaxing lifestyle and seclusion. Some of Hollywood's leading men who have lived here are: Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Cary Grant, Elvis Presley, and Bob Hope. Ladies of the silver screen who have owned homes here include Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Dinah Shore, Lily Tomlin, and Suzanne Sommers.

It's easy to understand the appeal of living in the desert town beloved by Frank Sinatra and his Rat Pack. Residents here get 354 days of sunshine per year, 360-degree views of the mountains, and as much culture and entertainment as they can take in. The great weather is perfect for those who enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle. Outdoor activities abound, including biking, hiking, golfing, tennis, swimming, and horseback riding.

Desert resort

There are many luxury estates in this glittering desert jewel, but if you don't have a Hollywood star's budget, you're still in luck. There are homes for every budget in Palm Springs and the surrounding desert cities, including Rancho Mirage, Cathedral City, Palm Desert, Indian Wells, Desert Hot Springs, La Quinta, and Indio.

People who have always wanted a second home in the desert but haven't been able to afford one due to high prices will find many great deals in the current market. An average three-bedroom home can now be had for just $250,000, down from about $450,000 at the peak.  Buyers can now, more than ever, feel secure about their investment, since prices haven't been this low for decades. Dreams are coming true in the California desert!
