This past weekend, it was my sister's birthday and we decided it was the perfect excuse to split from Los Angeles and head south to Palm Springs. Once a playground for hollywood's biggest movie stars, think Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley, it's an easy 90 minute trip to the heat of the desert. We decided on The Parker, a mid century modern lover's paradise. A great location to hang poolside with a few of the Parker's famous frozen lemonades, it has a perfect mix of kitsch and class. When in Palm Springs, some musts include a stop for a date shake at Hadleys off the interstate 10, breakfast at Cheeky's, a Palm Springs Modern Home Tour, a tram ride down Mount San Jacinto, a deep tissue massage at the Parker Spa, and a trip to their lemonade stand!
