Curious Traveler Visits Southwest Desert Hot Spots: From Fabulous to Celestial to Serene

Why Palm Springs Is Fabulous: I lived in Palm Springs for a few years, and was so sad to see that the legendary ?Fabulous Palm Springs Follies? closed in 2014, after a 23-year run.  Although you can?t see those over-the-top vaudeville-style shows, it?s a good place to start a description of what Palm Springs is like. Just like any other Ziegfeld or Vegas showgirl, the Follies showgirls wore mile-high feather boa?d headdresses, fantastically bright and skimpy costumes, adorned with pearls and rhinestones a-plenty. The only difference is these showgirls were all aged 55 to 84.  I even saw one showgirl in her 90s doing cartwheels on stage once. In heels. See why they were ?Fabulous?"So, this is why the Fabulous Palm Springs Follies epitomizes Palm Springs.  While others may aim to age gracefully, here it?s all about aging Fabulously.  In its 1950s-1960s Rat Pack heydey, the rich and famous (and Fabulous) of Hollywood all built vacation homes out here in the desert. I highly recommend you take a tour and see the former homes of Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope, Liberace (called ?Piazza de Liberace? of course. What an experience that was!) and the Honeymoon Hideaway of Elvis and Priscilla.So because of that mid-century building boom, Palm Springs is also known for incredible, gorgeous, stunning, space age-y mid-century modern architecture.  Hyperbole totally warranted here. Here?s a great Palm Springs Architecture Tour to try.  From the Ship of the Desert, where designer Trina Turk lives, to Palm Springs City Hall, there?s even a famous mid-century modern gas station here, for heaven?s sakes.There?s also Palm Canyon Drive, and El Paseo, known as the Rodeo Drive of Palm Springs (see" I told you it all goes back to Hollywood).  Don?t miss Palm Springs VillageFest every Thursday night, when that desert sun mercifully sets, and you can stroll with your family down Palm Canyon Drive through hundreds of arts and crafts booths, with plenty of sidewalk cafes to choose from.  This is also a great spot to do some people-watching. You never know which Hollywood-turned Palm Springs Fabulous celebrity you might see.Away from the Las Vegas Strip: To The Eighth Wonder of the WorldTake a break from the bright lights of Las Vegas, and opt for a scenic drive across the desert about 35 miles south to the Arizona/Nevada border and Black Canyon.  Here you?ll find a National Historic Landmark that weighs, oh, about 6.6 million tons. Known as the Eighth Wonder of the World: The Hoover Dam.At 726 feet high and stretching 1,244 feet across the Colorado River, it was the largest dam in the world at the time of its completion in 1935.  When you see it for the first time, you will be in awe.Take a tour, and here?s what you?ll learn:In the 1920s, the US Government devised a plan to harness the power of the mighty Colorado River, to provide water and hydroelectric power to the Southwest. And there was a very important bonus to this massive undertaking: to provide much-needed jo...
