Take a drive down to Palm Springs and wander around another great tourist spot, one the is often overlooked – the Palm Springs Walk of Stars. This walk is similar to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, though instead it honors a more diverse collection of celebrities, literary figures, humanitarians, and even Medal of Honor recipients and Presidents of the United States.
Located on the sidewalks of Palm Canyon Drive, Tahquitz Canyon Way, and Museum Drive, these “Golden Palms” are stars that feature the Palm logo and celebrate everyone from former President Ronald Reagan to Debbie Reynolds, Ginger Rogers, Natalie Wood, and many civic leaders, playwrights, authors, and composers. There are even five stars that are dedicated to Medal of Honor recipients that were honored during the 1999 Veterans Day Holiday, all of whom are from the Coachella Valley area.
This Walk of Stars is not going to be as busy as the bigger one in Hollywood, so you can spend more time looking at the names and sharing stories and memories of their contributions and successes. It is a great way to help introduce some famous names and spend time educating your children about military leaders and humanitarians, in addition to all the big movie and television celebrities.
After you’ve enjoyed your visit, commemorate it with the comprehensive guide to the Walk of Stars, or pick up a Star Pin. You can even Adopt a Star, which allows you free admission to the annual Celebration of the Stars event.
So take advantage of the always beautiful weather and spend an afternoon at the Palm Springs Walk of the Stars. If you want to make it a particularly memorable trip, then head out in your CL263 AMC 4-Door Coupe from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. The total luxury and comfort provided by this stylish car will make that drive to Palm Springs even better.
