The desert oasis has recently experienced a comeback by blending its nostalgic past as a playground for Hollywood with hip new development attracting a new generation of trendy travelers. Palm Springs was a favorite venue for The Rat Pack, and stars such as Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope and Lucille Ball all built homes in Palm Springs. Today, Palm Springs has become a gathering spot for architecture aficionados, musicians, artists, and trendy weekenders seeking a warm, retro-chic getaway with great hotels, restaurants and outdoor activities.

In a statement from Dave Clark, vice president of network planning at JetBlue. “Palm Springs’ re-emergence as a destination and the area’s nationally recognized events like Coachella make it the perfect addition to our transcontinental route map.”
