Yes, but people have heard of Hollywood, Florida.

Thanks for the Desi Arnaz video!  Yes, it's been ten years since I was here, but I've bookmarked the site so that I can easily return now.

Note that it is spelled Yucatán with the accent on the last "a".

 

I've not been to Chichen Itza in L.A. but have wanted to go.  I love Yucatecan food.  I found several Lebanese restaurants in Mérida that I liked when I was there, and I also love cochinita pibil, which I also make myself.

I love Palm Springs and go there about twice a year, but I avoid the summer months, although June can be bearable.  My brother and I are considering buying a second residence there because I want a pool, and we don't have room for one at our house in Los Angeles.  We could put in a small one, but I doubt I would use it very much.

 

I've not noticed any white patent leather in PS, but you might find that in some of the adjacent desert cities, such as Rancho Mirage and Palm Desert.  The crowd in Palm Springs is younger now than in the other desert cities.  Joshua Tree is close, as is Anza Borrego, and we like visiting both parks.  Also, Indio is very close, and it has a tamale festival each year.  Restaurants in PS are not great but they are generally not bad, and at least there is some variety.  I would say that the Mexican restaurants border on being bad, however.
