Tour of Stars Homes in Palm Springs
During a visit to Palm Spring we took a a self guided toar of the
homes of many stars. Surpisingly, most of these homes were very
ordinary, certainly not what we would have expected, though in part
this is because many of them were stars before the days of big bucks
for persanilities. This page describes the route that we took and
what we found. There are maps available for purchase from the Palm
Springs Visitor's center at (760) 778-8418. The maps that are
available list many more stars homes than the ones we saw, and the
maps plot a route that will take you by all of them.
