Elvis Honeymoon Hideaway, Palm Springs

Elvis Honeymoon Hideaway, Palm Springs (must see)

Another exemplar of Modernist style, this is the house where Elvis and Priscilla Presley lived in luxury during the first year of their marriage (1966-67), throwing infamously lavish parties. With its Jetsons-style furniture and lava rock wall, it was considered at the time an innovative "home of the future" and even featured electronic controls for indoor climate, outside lights, and automatic rain. Located close to the San Jacinto Mountains and offering a wonderful view of the Coachella Valley and Santa Rosa Mountains, in the 1990s the home was carefully restored to its original splendor, and there is also a lush garden, a large in-ground pool, and a tennis court.

For a peek inside, a private one-hour guided tour (at 1pm or 3:30pm) can be arranged ahead of time. If you're an Elvis fan, you will feel special being able to sit on the same furniture he did, walk through the rooms (much of the layout, kitchen counters, appliances, etc., are original) and enjoy a personal connection to the King of Rock and Roll. The tour guide is very knowledgable and more than willing to take pictures for you – there are quite a few fantastic photo opportunities as well!
