Family Travel: Staying at the Wexler Fishbowl

Family Travel Palm Springs

PALM SPRINGS, CA – “We need to do a lot more trips.” For the Bryman family from Los Angeles, this realization happened at the top of the boulders in Joshua Tree during their trip to Palm Springs, CA. Family Travel

FAMILY VACATION – “Planning anything for children is a delicate balance between what you want them to see and what you want them to show you. At home, you see them playing the same games over and over again, drawing the same pictures. You see where they get stuck in their creativity, their visions, their imagination.” One of the most powerful parts of a family vacation is seeing the kids – and the parents – reinvigorated. Family Travel

MID MOD IMMERSION – Part of the trip is about relaxing and unwinding – at home – in a very cool Midcentury Vacation Home Rental. “We’re all together, not really doing anything. Just being a family. Honestly, I think there’s something weirdly magical about this place.”   Family Travel

POOL TIME IS FAMILY TIME – “Getting ready for any trip, no matter what, is stressful. But then you get here, and you’re in a home, all together and not in separate rooms, and you realize it was all worthwhile.”

THINGS TO DO  – FAMILY TRAVEL: When the “showing them” and the “showing you” worlds collide, beautiful things can happen. In addition to spending lots of time at their vacation rental, hanging around the pool and just being a family  – the Brymans also put together a great list of family friendly outings throughout the desert.

This is an excerpt from Sophie De Kepper’s post as it appeared on AirBnB/Palm Springs. To read the full post about Jill Bryman’s family trip to Palm Springs where they stayed at The Wexler Fishbowl click here.

 

Jill Bryman’s Family Guide to Palm Springs

We have two extremely curious, high-energy daughters—Piper and Riley—with huge imaginations, and I find their interpretations of places and things on vacation are almost always a lot more exciting and a lot more fun than we could have hoped for. With that said, here’s a list (in no particular order) of our top five favorite places to see, feel, eat, and enjoy when we’re in Palm Springs.Family Travel

Family Travel / Where To Eat:

Cheeky’sEvery family stops at Cheeky’s on their way to or from Palm Springs. Local and organic with seasonally changing menus that mother’s love and gooey sticky waffles that the kids go wild over. And: cocktails!

Johnny Costa’s Ristorante: Family owned and popular amongst the locals, this place has great pasta and pizza. Every family needs a good place to go for pizza while on vacation, and this place has gluten-free options!

Smoke Tree BBQ: Because yum, and it’s child friendly.

Shields Date Garden: This is a fun activity coupled with a good breakfast or lunch. The garden/museum is an interesting insight into all things date-related, and the cafe has lots of date- (as opposed to cane sugar) sweetened treats.

The West Elm House Draws Sold Out Crowds During Modernism Week

PALM SPRINGS, CA – The West Elm House opened to sold out crowds during Palm Springs Modernism Week.  More than 1,500 Modernists visited the home during the first weekend of Modernism Week 2017. Weekend One events included The Big Reveal Party, a private Sonos-sponsored Dinner, and two full days of Home Tours. All available tickets have already been reserved for the second weekend of Modernism (February 24-26, 2017) when another 1,000 guests are expected to tour the home. Tickets are required. Click here for more information.

The West Elm House, Palm SpringsWhat is The West Elm House?

The West Elm House is an idea house where visitors can experience the “Midcentury to Next Century Transformation” of an iconic 1950s home.  West Elm, a branch of Williams-Sonoma, recently opened a store here in Downtown Palm Springs. Now they have teamed up with Mike Flannery of Acme House Company to use their product line of organic, handcrafted, sustainably sourced and Fair Trade Certified™ sofas, tables, beds, lighting and accessories to furnish a classic Midcentury home (circa 1957) originally built by the Alexander Construction Company and recently remodeled by Solterra Builders.

The West Elm House, Palm SpringsThe West Elm House is the brain child of Brand Specialist, John-Patrick, who worked with Christopher Kennedy to produce the first Palm Springs Modernism Week Show House in 2014. That event has become an anchor program for Modernism Week. Now John-Patrick has connected Solterra Builders, West Elm and Acme House Company to introduce the next big thing in Mid Mod Design: a year-long concept house created to inspire and guide architecture and design enthusiasts when it comes to the art of modernizing a midcentury home for the way we live today.

The West Elm House, Palm Springs

Patricia Lockwood, an award-winning designer with Palm Desert-based Design Vision Studio, said The West Elm House topped her list of  favorite Modernism Week events. “My design firm hosted a group of clients and friends for a day in Palm Springs to celebrate Modernism Week.  We bought our tickets and scheduled our tours starting with The West Elm House. What a great surprise! It didn’t feel like an extension of the showroom. Instead it felt like a home.  The furnishings and décor were harmonious with the architecture – both inside and  out.  Well done West Elm & Acme House Company! The design nailed the playful Palm Springs lifestyle!”

Modernism Week & Beyond

West Elm and Acme House Company hosted The Big Reveal of The West Elm House during the opening weekend of Palm Springs Modernism Week. Home Tours will continue during Weekend Two of Modernism Week. Throughout the year that follows, The West Elm House will serve as a private residence but on occasion will be used to host Design Education Programs for Modernists. It will also be available as a Vacation Home Rental managed by Acme House Company – offering exclusive stays by the week and month – and season – on a limited basis.

SUMMER IS HERE: Live Life – Like it’s the Last Day of School!

PALM SPRINGS, CA – Finally! Summer is here – that stretch of long, lazy days when we are less hassled with responsibilities and more focused on making memories. It’s a time to catch lightening bugs in a jar, stay in the pool until you’re wrinkled like a prune, and make late night runs for ice cream. While Spring may be the time for new beginnings –  we all know Summer is when memories are made.

20110927-HilltopDriveIn1950sIt doesn’t matter whether you’re a pint-size 8 year old or a child of the 1950s who is maturing gracefully. These early days of Summer are full of promise, overflowing with optimism and downright exciting. It’s the end of June – so live life – like it’s the last day of school.

Summer – it’s when you fell in love for the first time, learned to ride a bike, and actually got to know that uncle from up north. Its also when you first met that kid from around the block – the lifelong friend who stood up for you at your first (and maybe second) wedding.

Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones to Headline Desert Trip Concert

Baby Boomers will be the next generation to be “Rockin’ in the Free World” at the Indio Polo Grounds near Palm Springs. Desert Trip – The Coachella of classic rock  – is coming this October. Tickets go on sale Monday,  May 9 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time.

Since 2001, crowds of Generation Y music fans have been flocking to the Polo Grounds for the annual Coachella Festival — known for top-tier bookings and headline-grabbing reunion shows (Outkast, Guns N’ Roses).  Now the Coachella Festival Promoter, Goldenvoice, has announced its newest music festival to be held at the Polo Grounds. Desert Trip, scheduled for October 7 through 9,   will feature a power house line up of classic rock legends  including  Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones and Paul McCartney. Rounding out the bill will be rock and roll icons Neil Young, the Who and Roger Waters of Pink Floyd.

But instead of a drawing a millennial-heavy crowd, this festival aims squarely at Baby Boomers, many of whom attended the original Woodstock on  Yasgur’s Farm back in the summer of 1969.

Where To Stay For The Festival

You can find great places to stay during The Festival – you just have to know where to look.  If you are traveling with a group of four to ten people, you’ll want to consider staying in a luxury vacation home rental in the Coachella Valley.  Here are some of our best picks.
