The Architectural Icons Walking Tour began with a stop at this large stone mural to hear about the history of Palm Springs.
We then visited a few iconic buildings in downtown, and the tour ended at the Architecture and Design Center. Our small tour group was friendly, our guide was knowledgeable, and we learned quite a bit about local design history.
We’ve also been walking around the neighborhoods quite a bit looking at the cool houses. (Ok, Kenan is walking for exercise, I am the one looking for the Desert Modern houses!)
Did you notice that none of these homes has a front lawn full of grass? Most front “lawns” around here are actually full of gravel, with lots of palm trees and cactus plants adding the greenery.
