Landmark Travels – Mod Week 2023

February 15, 2023 - February 20, 2023

Landmark is heading back to Palm Springs, California, for Modernism Week – the epicenter of mid-century architecture and design in the country. And this time, with the help of a dedicated member, we will be able to stay at one of Palm Springs’ top resorts – the Parker Palm Springs, parkerpalmsprings.com. The resort has been described as “the ultimate desert escape – Parker Palm Springs is a place to relax, retreat, and indulge.” We are going to give you plenty of time to do all three! We’ll get a private tour of my college roommate’s William Krisel-designed home and, once again, he will be helping us pick the best of the best in ModWeek home tours, neighborhood tours, and exclusive events. And since Landmark friends, Roz Orzel and Dave Sewhuk, bought a little souvenir on our last Landmark Travels tour to ModWeek (a vacation home!) we will be consulting with them on some hidden treasures that they have discovered and have a private reception at their condo in the famous Racquet Club (Marilyn Monroe posed on the diving board there). One of their suggestions is Slab City, also called The Slabs, an unincorporated, off-the-grid alternative lifestyle community. Fun! Also hoping to get to take everyone on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, the world’s largest rotating tram cars, which carry visitors from the Valley Station, elevation 2,643 feet, to the Mountain Station located at the 8,516-foot level of Mt. San Jacinto State Park and Wilderness. But we are still planning! Contact Larry Francer at lfrancer@landmarksociety.org if you’re interested!
