Palm Springs sprouted from the desert as an oasis for health tourists in search of sunshine and dry heat. Its climate is comfortable year-round thanks to Mount San Jacinto shading the area from direct sun exposure in the summer, while also blocking cold winter winds over San Gorgonio Pass. Palm Springs later became the go-to spot for Hollywood celebrities, who commissioned handsome modernist buildings that stand to this day.
