Joshua Tree is known as a site of spiritual healing and outdoor adventure. But, the cosmic desert locale also boasts excellent options for hospitality, food, and non-hiking activities. Here, where to stay, eat, and explore:
Book at Sacred Sands, the most luxurious option in the area, offering panoramic views and mineral water hot tubs. Get the full desert experience at this dome-shaped rental with two bedrooms and a rustic, boho vibe.
The Natural Sisters Cafe serves vegetarian sandwiches, smoothies, and locally-roasted coffee with an emphasis on seasonality and minimal environmental impact. Try the vegan carrot cake. For upscale, inventive fare head to La Copine. Dine on dishes like citrus and beet salad and eggplant al forno.
