Event Description

Walk among the stars in this prestigious and historic neighborhood. Old Las Palmas began its development in the late 1920s and 1930s and has one of the highest concentrations of celebrity homes anywhere. Elizabeth Taylor, Kirk Douglas, Katherine Hepburn, Gene Autry, Lena Horne, Cary Grant, Judy Garland, Dinah Shore and many other Hollywood stars have been residents here.

This must see neighborhood truly nurtured Palm Springs reputation as The Playground of the Stars. Today Leonardo DeCaprio boasts a celebrated Modernist home in this exclusive neighborhood. Spanish Colonial architecture with its signature red tile roofs abounds, but examples of dramatic and significant midcentury architecture are sprinkled in the area. You will hear surprising tales of the stars who lived and martini-ed here.
