Sunnylands, the former winter retreat for the wealthy Annenberg family and a popular summit space for decades of presidents, resides on a 200-acre plot of irrigated desert in Rancho Mirage. Though much of that space is occupied by a nine-hole golf course, 12 acres have been dedicated to public gardens and a visitor center with a rotating selection of artwork from the Annenberg collection. Tours of the mansion are available but regularly sell out months in advance.

It's free to park and wander at the gardens, and definitely worth it. There are plenty of shaded benches that are perfect for hunkering down with a good book amidst some of the desert's most beautiful, and well-manicured, flora. If you want to take a tour of the house, make a reservation in advance - otherwise there's no planning needed.
