Joshua Tree National Park Tourism: Best of Joshua Tree National Park

Dive into a desert dreamscape where cholla, reptiles, and boulder fields reign
At Joshua Tree National Park, you get a twofer: Both the Mojave and Colorado desert meet here, and you can experience the flora and fauna of both. Wondering about Joshua Tree’s name? It’s a tribute to the Seussian style Yucca brevifolia, or Joshua Trees, you’ll find poking up all over the landscape. Technicolor wildflowers bring an influx of people in the spring, while migrating birds—some 250 species to be exact—draw avid birders in the winter. Visitors spend their time hiking, camping, and climbing to their heart’s delight. And the area’s dark skies provide ample stargazing opportunities year-round, including viewing the Milky Way and Andromeda and Triangulum galaxies with the naked eye.
