    desert cities like Palm Springs grows by 31,000. In the last couple of
    years many people have decided to become a permanent resident of Palm
    Springs.

    Palm
    Springs was first known by the name Old MacDonald Ranch, then Palm
    Village in the 1920s when date palms were planted. The first residential
    development was started in the year 1943 in connection with an Army
    maintenance camp in the area. Later an upscale shopping district was
    developed known by its now famous name “El Paseo”. Real estate
    development started in the year 1948 by the Palm Desert Corporation
    which was one of the first to begin to develop real estate.

    Possibly
    the most famous attraction in Palm Desert is the Living Desert Zoo and
    Gardens, a combination zoo and botanical garden featuring an extensive
    collection of desert plants and animals. It is also the site of the
    campus of College of the Desert, the local community college, and also
    an extension campus of California State University, San Bernardino and
    The University of California Riverside’s Palm Desert Campus.
