Marilyn Monroe Statue Palm Springs

Palm Springs life is something I've been drawn to year after year.  After an hour and a  half drive from Los Angeles, one exits the famous 111 exit and somehow the cares of city-living just seem to fade away as he wraps around the mountain - destination Palm Springs, California.  One exciting attraction is Forever Marilyn.  This 26 foot statue began her journey in May of 2012 from the famous Windy City and fans from around the world have adored her day after day ever since. 

With so much to see and do right around the area, Marilyn makes a great welcome to anyone out on a stroll, having a quick champagne brunch at , or perhaps sitting for a coffee across the street.  Weather this weekend and here in early March was a comfortable 85 degrees during the day and the cool mornings made getting out and about a true vacation feel in one of my favorite towns in the world.  A few of my favorite things to do whilst there:
  • The Arial Tramway - for a journey 5,000 feet up and city vistas all around
  • A walk through old Las Palmas to view some of the fabulous homes and architecture
  • Jazz nightclubs throughout town
  • A day of shopping in Palm Desert
  • Brunch on the golf course
  • A cocktail at The Parker  Hotel
Or perhaps, just a relaxing day by the pool.  With weather still being (unbearable?) quite cold throughout different parts of the country, Palm Springs offers the perfect get-away during this time of year, and it's an area I enjoy being in year round despite the summertime heat.
