Why Make Your Home inPalmDesert
Travelers and home-seekers from all over the United States are coming tothe desert country each year in increasing numbers—and if you ask whythe semi-arid land of the Southwest has become such a powerful lure forAmericans, one of the answers is
SUNSHINE
Here in a sheltered cove at the base of California'sSanta Rosa mountains where the new community ofPalm Desert is being built the sun shines clear andwarm nearly every day in the year.There is no fog—none of the gas-laden smog whichhas became a plague to dwellers in the industrial com-munities. Seldom are the days even overcast withclouds. Two or three times a year there are a few hoursof rain—just enough to freshen the landscape and startthe desert flowers sprouting. But for the most part thisis a land blessed with sunshine warm, relaxing,health-giving sunshine. Humans thrive in this cheerfulatmosphere.It is here on a sun-favored bajada overlooking thedate gardens of Coqchella valley that a fine watersupply has been developed, paved streets installed, theconstruction of a school started and electric and gas andtelephone service made available for those who wouldbuild new homes and income properties in Palm Desert.For those who liko recreation the luxurious
ShadowMountain Club
is now open and offers the opportunityfor swimming, miniature boating, riding, tennis, pitch-and-putt
golf,
badminton and other facilities for enjoy-ment and health in the sunny Palm Desert cove rimmedby sheltering mountains.But whatever form of recreation you prefer, there isalways sunshine—the invigorating life-giving sunshineof the desert.
