Hadley Fruit Orchards

Banning, CA -- Many who live in Southern California are familiar with Palm Springs. Those who visit Palm Springs regularly definitely know about Hadley's Fruit Orchard off Interstate 10.

The "Hadley" sign looms high above the highway linking LA and Palm Springs, tempting travelers of all ages. I go for the Banana Date Shakes. For less than $5, I can run in, grab a shake, ask the friendly staff of any recent celebrity visits, and be on my way.

While visiting, I met Tracy, Richard and Debra (pictured above). Together, they pointed out the a few movie stars who recently stopped by. Hadley's walls are lined with more than a hundred autographed 8 x 10 photos. Both of the fun-loving ladies say they are sometimes a little shy to ask, but they still manage to get some of the Hollywood stars to autograph their picture and hang it up in the store.

Really nice. Good thing they were there to give you the banana shake. JT two hours sitting in traffic?

Banana? Naaah, just the straight date shake for me. Can't pass Hadleys without stopping.
