Joshua Tree National Park is home to 800,000 acres of whimsical desert wilderness and thousands of beautiful Joshua Trees native to the Mojave Desert. With great hikes and mountainous landscapes, the national park alone is a unique, fascinating, and worthwhile. But hey, you've already thought about flying into LAX and picking up a rental car, why not make a stop in Palm Springs, too? 

This guide takes you from LA to Palm Springs, then from PS to Joshua Tree and gives you every detail you'd possibly need to make this a memorable, carefree, and EVEN RELAXING road trip. From tasty grub in the middle of the desert, rainbow hotels and tiki bars, do-not-miss stops in the national park to first timer LA hotspots, this guide has it all. Ranging in accommodation prices and food options, this guide is for a traveler with any kind of budget.
