Hollywood may have its Walk of Fame, but the Palm Springs Walk of Stars is a fascinating look at some very special people and a must-see destination in this beautiful city. 

Although the Palm Springs Walk of Stars was only founded in 1992, it's considered a historical landmark. Each Golden Palm Star embedded in the Palm Springs sidewalks honors noteworthy people from all eras who, "by their presence in the area, contributed to the charm, worldwide prominence and name recognition of Greater Palm Springs." Honorees must have owned or rented real estate or a dwelling in the Greater Palm Springs area and lived there for "periods of considerable regularity."

More than just television and movie stars, the categories of individuals include: Literary (authors, playwrights and screen writers with special merits for literary works that have been turned into television or film productions); Show Business (including actors, producers, directors, playwrights, cinematographers and musicians who are or were distinguished personalities on stage, radio, film and/or television); Pioneers/Civic (including early settlers, tribal leaders and civic personalities); Humanitarian; Military (those awarded Congressional Medals); and Sports. Visitors have fun discovering the diverse collection of notables here, from Cheetah the Chimp to President Ronald Reagan to Elvis Presley - you never know who you may come across next.

Hundreds of stars dedicated to honorees are embedded in sidewalks along Palm Canyon Drive, Museum Drive, La Plaza Court and Tahquitz Canyon Way. It's a great place to stroll and read the names on the stars while also enjoying visits to local shops and restaurants.
