A luxurious lifestyle meets a playful landscape in Rancho Mirage. Several past U.S. Presidents, including Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon, and Barack Obama, have unplugged here, finding peace amid the palm trees and earning the city the nickname “playground of presidents.” And it truly is a playground. Kids can explore more than 80 hands-on exhibits at the Children’s Museum of the Desert; couples can reach for the stars at the city’s new state-of-the-art observatory, where a research-grade CDK 300 telescope allows visitors to gaze into distant galaxies; and families can shop, dine, and catch a flick all in the same day at Greater Palm Springs’ only waterfront shopping and entertainment hub, The River.
