the Walter Annenberg Estate, country clubs, and the Eisenhower Medical Center. All tours are made in air-conditioned coaches. Pickups at Palm Springs hotels and the tour office. $$; from May through September children under 14 are free with a paid adult
If you’ve been wondering how to find Elvis’s honeymoon hideaway or the place where Liberace entertained, book your family on an air-conditioned coach for a guided tour of the Las Palmas district (also known as the movie colony) and other areas where history was made. Well-rehearsed guides tell all, and you won’t want to miss a word of their entertaining narrative. This is far better than a self-guided tour through the quiet neighborhoods of walled villas and winding streets—and it’s the only way to get the lowdown on how Hollywood established itself in the desert.
Sunny Daze Cafe, next door to Celebrity Tours, is good for a refreshing nibble before or after your tour.
