And whereas the California Low Desert isn’t nearly as popular as it was when the Rat Pack ruled the area in the 1950s and 1960s, there is still plenty to recommend about the place, like the nostalgia that has seeped into then entire area. Those who spend time in the Low Desert will feel like they’ve gone back in time, when Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis, Jr. ruled Palm Springs, the center hub of the region and the largest town in the Coachella Valley. The entire area features many fully-restored hotels and rental homes that will take you back to the post-War 20th Century.

There are also numerous festivals in the Low Desert that celebrate the old days, and many vintage stores will help you feel as if you fit right in. The Coachella Music Festival is one of the best in the country, for example. And besides the Palm Springs Aerial Tram, there are the lunar landscapes of Joshua Tree National Park, which is very close by, as well as Salvation Mountain.
