One of my favorite destination spots is Joshua Tree, CA. It’s known for a plant by it’s namesake Joshua Tree or Yucca brevifolia, is a member of the Agave family. You can visit the National Park for hikes varying from easy-difficult.
You can camp and there are several small hotels but I generally enjoy finding a small Airbnb to stay at. One of most well-known Airbnb’s that you can rent is the Joshua Tree House.
Make sure to grab dinner at Pappy and Harriet’s in Pioneer Town. You can tour the small shops and town while you wait for your table! Check out the calendar beforehand to see if there is a fun live band performing.
For other daytime activities, grab some healthy grub at Natural Sisters Cafe, make your own scents at Grateful Desert, and for an unforgettable afternoon of sound baths, check out the Integratron - make sure to book in advance. On your way out of town, you must stop at the at The End, a killer vintage shop and The Cactus Mart for all of your small-large plant needs.
I hope you enjoy Joshua Tree as much as I do!
