See the vibrant impact and growth that arose from post WWII with bold business ventures in the North part of town known as the Uptown Design District. Architects left their imprint with stylish structures and Hollywood injected fun and glamour that current hipsters mirror. Lavish inns still to this day reflect the Palm Springs vibe, enjoyed as much today as they have been in three eras of boom.
