Blue Skies

My grandparents lived in Blue Skies Village for quite awhile back in the early 80's. I have very happy memories of spending a week or two there every winter (we are from Michigan).

There now

I am writing this from within Blue Skies Village where I have stayed for the last week with a cousin. Well maintained and in varying degrees of condition and rehab. Very reasonable. Taxes are $480 a year and $255 a month for association dues which includes water, maintenance, pool, trash pickup and more. You should visit soon. 84 degrees today.

Yes it was...you can get more information if you watch "California Gold" which is a travel log type program in the educational station KCET. It is hosted by Huell Howser; he goes all over our great state of California telling his viewing audience about some very interesting places that he has found. He did several programs just on Palm Springs. Huell also host several other travel log type show all of which are sponored AAA of California. I suggest that you go online to get more information on Huell Howser and California Gold.

Great question. My grandfather, Rex Thompson, came to Blue Skies Trailer Village to design and develop it in the late 50's. When he became a stockholder he changed the name to Blue Skies Village. Many of the original mobile homes are still in place. Bing Crosby and many stars were the original stockholders.
