Honored at Walk of Stars, General “Ike” Eisenhower was a passionate golfer said to have played a hundred rounds of golf per year. Bringing his passion for golf to the desert in the 50s, Coachella Valley quickly emerged as one of the president’s most favored destinations. Eisenhower later purchased a home at Eldorado Country Club in Indian Wells, becoming a local resident eligible to receive his own star on Palm Canyon Dr. Visiting the celebrities’ stars on this street has become one of our most booked Limousine excursions. Whether by limo services or not, make sure to check out these famed, embedded bronze stars.
Homeowners in Rancho Mirage since the late 70s, both Gerald- and Betty Ford are recognized at Palm Springs Walk of Fame. After living in the city for decades, the former president passed away at his house in 2006, 93 years old. Their Thunderbird estate complete with Palm lined gardens overlooks one of Ford’s favorite golf courses. With no less than 6 bedrooms in an over 6,300 sq. ft. mansion, the ranch-style house was equipped with a private swimming pool and surrounding fountains. Attracted to the region due to its brilliant climate, world-renowned sports and natural springs, the Fords first settled here in 1978.
A regular visitor, Reagan vacationed in town both as Governor and Commander in Chief.
