Mid-century modern architecture interests me, so I suspect I'd enjoy checking out the homes in Palm Springs. I think it would be especially fantastic to visit if they offer organized home tours.

Thanks for the great photos! I think if I were to go on a vacation somewhere in the Desert Southwest, Palm Springs would probably be #1 on my list (ahead of Phoenix, Vegas, Tucson, etc.).

Palm Springs is also known as having the larges amount of midcentury modernism in the world, as these pictures show.

I'm not really a fan of desert communities (especially with water availability being a major issue), but I have to admit—Palm Springs looks pretty awesome.

The mid-century architecture alone is enough to warrant a visit, although I don't know what someone who isn't exorbitantly wealthy could do there except marvel at unattainable wealth.

Thanks for the photo captions, too. They make all the difference for someone who doesn't know what she's viewing.
