Palm Springs

Nabbing a cool, mid-century modern bungalow in Palm Springs for a week by the pool could well be one of your better ideas.

It certainly was one of mine. This little resort community of 45,000 people 175 kilometres east of Los Angeles is a great spot to relax and explore, gold and play tennis, and generally soak up the Hollywood playground vibe. If it was good enough for Frank Sinatra, it’s good enough for you. Both the Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals are big draws in early spring, and there are numerous film festivals throughout the year. The more friends you can arm-twist to come with you, the bigger your pool will be. Check out for listings, along with and
