Grab your hiking boots, some friends and go experience one of the most interesting desert vacations of your life. Read on for our Destination Guide to Joshua Tree.
The Invisible House is hands down the most unique architectural home in Joshua Tree. Bordering Joshua Tree National Park, the 3-bedroom residence is made entirely of mirrored glass that equates to a 22-story horizontal skyscraper cantilevered over rocks. The house disappears into the desert landscape at every angle encouraging those who view it to appreciate the nature surrounding them. Guests stay for the 100 foot long indoor pool and natural 360-views that go for miles.
Head to this local watering hole after a hike in Joshua Tree National Park for incredible food, drinks and a picturesque outdoor dining set up. The menu is a mix of New American and Caribbean cuisine and let me tell you, you cannot go wrong.
A must-visit when you are in the Joshua Tree area. Located in Pioneertown, Pappy + Harriet’s is next to the old western set town you may recognize from films and television from the 1940’s and 50’s. If you love live music, beer, BBQ and cowboy-style ambiance, this is the place for you.
Spend a day driving through the park and stopping along the way for breathtaking views and hikes through a range of unique terrains. Weave through larger than life boulders to capture views of stark desert landscapes or stroll through sandy paths and admire the infamous Joshua trees. Be sure not to miss Skull Rock and the Cholla Cactus Garden.
For an “out of this world” experience, book one of the sound bath’s at the Integratron. This healing ritual is perfect for those venturing to the desert in search of deep relaxation, rejuvenation, and introspection.
