      I already decided I would say my name is Victoria instead of Laura if I were hanging out at the bar with the pink stools. Do you want to be Juliet?

    This makes me want to spend a weekend in Palm Springs

    I’ll just be by the private pool. Love these images.

    I really wish someone would make a modern resort that looks like this! Love the pictures!

      There has to be a resort like this somewhere! If not, someone needs to open one up because that would be a gold mine! Everyone in the picture seems to be having the best time!

    How amazing does this look? I mean really, I am craving a vacation! ASAP!

    Back when vacations really were a disconnect from the regular. Nicely done finding these images!

    Loveeeee these. I’d be happy as a clam to stay at any of these! This reminds me of the vintage postcards I featured on my blog: They were my great grandma’s!

    I love these! I may have to pin some of these images. That pink, blue and gold lobby!!!!

    Love this! I want to go back in time and live there so bad!!! Just for a little, go on vacation!

    Thank you for this, Laura. I stayed at the Blue Mist in 1970 on my first trip to Miami. Have lived in South Florida on and off since then. Got chills looking at these and thinking of the good old days in paradise. Peace, Rose
