Usually for these destination deep dives (as we like to call them) we find resort and area photos that best represent the gorgeous destinations we are visiting, and usually it’s pretty easy to pick the best ones. But seriously, darlings, when we combed through the almost 7,000 photos that the Greater Palm Springs CVB gave us access to, we spent hours trying to determine which ones best represented this incredible location. Part of the problem was this: what comes to mind when you think of Palm Springs? It’s a dichotomy of landscape and luxe, desert and oasis. Is it an artist colony or a celebrity escape? Mid-century modern, or ornate Tuscan? Yes. Just yes. No wonder it’s been a storied destination for over 70 years.
