Palm Springs, obviously.

Phoenix has a good spread of mid-century homes in a few select neighborhoods of Central Phoenix, from the North Mountain and Sunnyslope neighborhoods, to Alhambra, and into Camelback East and Arcadia. Most of these homes were designed by two different architects, Ralph Haver and Al Bradley. Frank Lloyd Wright helped to an extent.

Any other cities besides these two?

What defines "a lot"?

Colo Spgs tore down a good portion of its Edwardian era downtown to replace it with glass and steel buildings once the Air Force Academy came to town. The AFA buildings and grounds are on the National Historic Registery for this era. This carried over to neighborhood development too with the booming population of post WW2 military relocating to the area. Cragmoor, Wasson, Kitty Hawk, Country Club are residential areas that developed from the late 40s to mid 60s.

Well-known architects and MCM neighborhoods. Well-defined movement of McM architecture. Phoenix has several along with the Frank Lloyd Wright homes.

A lot of cities have mid-century homes but very, VERY few are modern.

The significant amount of Art Deco buildings in Miami Beach should count. And perhaps parts of downtown Las Vegas, the older hotels and casinos that are not on the Strip. I think most of Fremont Street dates back to the mid 20th century and has that distinct neon style from the 50s particularly places like Binions Horseshoe and Union Plaza.
