I came to Palm Springs for a visit and decided to stay. The people are friendly and warm and welcoming. It truly felt like home from the beginning.

Palm Springs has long been known as a vacation destination to Hollywood stars, Marilyn Monroe was said to be discovered at the legendary Racquet Club. Palm Springs boasts many tourist attractions: the Tramway, Art museum, Living Desert and many antique boutiques. Palm Springs while extremely LGBT friendly is also very family friendly. Whatever you want from a tourist destination you can find here. A short commute to Los Angeles and the beaches of the Pacific coast and the ski resorts of the local mountains, Palm Springs is truly a gem and worth the visit.
