Palm Springs is such a cute desert city that is known for its unique and beautiful homes. There is even a tour of all the colorful doors in the neighborhoods. However, beyond the houses, I have other favorite Instagram spots in Palm Springs to share with you as well. I have even included a few stops along the way from LA.
