Palm Springs Tramway

The Tramway Gas Station, a former Enco service station, in Palm Springs, California, is located at the corner of Tramway Road and California State Route 111. The building, erected in 1965, with its distinctive, cantilevered, wedge-shaped canopy was designed by Albert Frey and Robson C. Chambers. It is considered to be a prime example of desert modern architecture. Frey was known for his use of simple materials, the building is constructed out of concrete block, steel, and glass.

The station had closed by the mid-1990s and is now operated by the Palm Springs Bureau of Tourism as the Palm Springs Visitor Center. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2015 and is open to the public.

Manzanar which translates to "apple orchard" in Spanish was home to over 10,000 Japanese Americans during WWII. The site was identified by the United States National Park Service as the best-preserved of the former camp sites, and is now the Manzanar National Historic Site, which preserves and interprets the legacy of Japanese American internment in the United States. 

The site is about a 3 hour drive from Los Angeles, the visitors center is located in what was the camp's original assembly hall. Inside guests are shown the unfiltered reality of how fear and racism lead to the internment of over 120,000 Americans of Japanese heritage. The exhibit gives you a different perspective of how different the world was and how much really hasn't changed.
