Architecture Tours

Palm Springs is a mecca for fans of mid-century modern architecture. Here are some famous properties & architectural tours you may enjoy seeing during your stay in the desert:

Sunnylands
The Sunnylands website refers to this historic property as a “West Coast Camp David” due to frequent visits from political leaders, but it also happens to be a mid-century gem. The public is invited to tour the property with an advance ticket purchase (closed in July & August).

Palm Springs Modern Tours
This 3 hour guided tour is done completely by car, perfect if you’re really into modernism. Cost is $85 per person.

The Modern Tour
This 2.5 hour curated tour shows off some of Palm Springs’ finest mid-cen architecture. It is more expensive — $150 per person with a 1 day advance reservation required — but this tour also includes interior tours of some properties. One of our recent guests also shared with us that “you get a fab book at the end.”
