Based in the desert city of Palm Springs, you’ll discover the nearby fascinating Joshua Tree National Park. With so much to see from the bizarrely shaped Joshua Trees, Cholla Cactus garden, skull-shaped rocks and the beautifully named Wonderland of Rocks to name a few, it makes for a great stop on your road trip. Spend the day exploring all the wonders of the park and to cool off from the intense desert heat, you’ll be staying in a modern hotel with a swimming pool for two nights.

Your day-by-day itinerary

Arrive in Palm Springs

Arrive in the green oasis town of Palm Springs from either the Grand Canyon or Las Vegas, with perhaps a slight detour to the famous Route 66. Check into your modern hotel and take a dip in the pool to cool off from the intense desert heat. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, so feel free to wander around town for a bite to eat, or simply make use of the hotel facilities and get an early night so you’re ready for your trip to Joshua Tree National Park the following day.

Joshua Tree National Park

It’s best to get an early start today to avoid the hot desert sun. Make sure you pack all the necessary essentials, as you’ll spend the whole day enjoying all the highlights of this fascinating national park. There’s so much to see from the bizarrely shaped Joshua Trees, Cholla Cactus garden, Skull Rock and the beautifully named Wonderland of Rocks. When the day comes to an end, you’ll head back to your hotel for a well-deserved cooling off in the pool.
