Palm Springs boasts a large concentration of Mid-Century Modern architecture and, since the early 1920s, many of the top visionaries have designed sleek, modern homes for the famous and infamous. Take a year-round guided tour, either by van or on Segway, to get an up close and personal account of designs by Albert Frey, Richard Neutra and William F. Cody. Or embark on your own "Mad Men"-style journey and take a self-guided tour of these masterpieces (don't forget to check out Elvis's Honeymoon Hideaway!). Simply pick up a map of Mid-Century Modern landmarks at the iconic Tramway Gas Station, an Albert Frey and Robson Chambers original, which now serves as the official Palm Springs Visitors Center.
