Palm Springs isn't just a backdrop for the biggest music festival of the year, it's a long-celebrated and well-hidden hangout of moguls, Hollywood elite, and former presidents. Peppered with palm trees, midcentury architecture, contemporary cuisine, the spot makes the perfect weekend getaway with just enough to do without getting dull— as if poolside tanning ever bored anyone to death.

Hotels such as the Parker Palm Springs, which was built as old Hollywood star Gene Autry's private residence, bring a retro-meets-boho aesthetic to an ultra-luxe destination. Culinary destinations like Farm elevate the casual brunch with provençal dining practices and french fare.
