Celebrity Haven: The Tennis Club Neighborhood

February 25, 2018 | 9:30 am - 11:30 am |


Visit the famed Palm Springs Tennis Club neighborhood nestled into the foothills of the San Jacinto Mountains. Here’s where stars like Errol Flynn, Lucille Ball, and Frank Sinatra stayed and played in the spectacular beauty of its desert surroundings. Today’s Hollywood hipsters (Cameron Diaz, Robert Downey Jr., and Reese Witherspoon, among others) continue to use this neighborhood’s boutique hotels as their private sanctuaries and get an inside look at how Modernism took center stage in this celebrity haven.

See close-up the inns and resorts that were, and remain today, hideaways for the Stars. Many were designed and built after WWII when America’s appetite for modern design was the rage. It was the Atomic Age and Palm Springs captured the futuristic mood like no other place on earth.

Presented by the Palm Springs Historical Society.
