Recently, my husband and I spent time in Palm Springs. It's really a cool, quaint town, plus all the new communities that have popped up around it are lovely.
The historic downtown area has so much character. It has the look of yesteryear when Frank, Ben and Dean (among others) hung out there.
There are still lots of stars living in the desert area; in fact I read in the LA Times that Suzanne Somers has her home on the market for a mere $38 million in the Palm Springs area!!
Barry Manilow lives in Palm Springs and jets to Vegas several times a week for his show.
The weather this time of year is near perfection but in the summer months it is another story!! Not a place to spend your summer months! I am assuming there is a mass exodus of those who can afford leaving for cooler grounds!
While eating at a restaurant downtown I was visiting with the owner/manager and he mentioned that he was married to an actress. His wife is a star on The Young and the Restless! I nearly had heart failure since I have watched Y & R since I was in high school. She plays the role of "Gloria" on the Y & R (Judith Chapman). Judith's husband extended an invitation to tour the set with his wife and to be introduced to the other stars of the Y & R.! I can't wait!!
