After travelling to the Palm springs area for years finally went to Joshua Tree National Park. Amazing is the first word that comes to mind. Definitely a Must See area! Pack a lunch and spend the day, well worth it!

Amazing place that we enjoyed driving through. The Joshua trees were gorgeous. There is no place to eat, and it takes a while to drive through the park. Bring food and water along. Plenty of restroom facilities.

This was a fantastic day trip for the whole family. The kids enjoyed climbing the rock formations and different climates from South to North are incredibly interesting to see change on a 50 mile drive. The rangers at the Joshua Tree station were very accommodating...More
