A Weekend Getaway to Joshua Tree

One of my favorite road trips is to Joshua Tree. It’s about 2.5 hours outside of Los Angeles and feels like it’s a world away. I rented a gorgeous AirBNB with huge outdoor area including a BBQ, jacuzzi, plunge pool, and a firepit.

We watched the Perseid Meteor Shower which was completely visible from the backyard. The most beautiful meteors and stars were visible by the naked eye!

A trip to Pioneertown was a given (meal at Pappy & Harriet’s pictured below!) – which included Baby Back Ribs and Cheese Fries. It’s nice to walk around Pioneertown while it’s still light out and to check out the little shops they have in town. I can’t wait to go back, especially when it’s not 100 degrees out!

Robolights Art Installation / Holiday Lights – Palm Springs

This past weekend I visited the Robolights art installation in Palm Springs. It was mind blowing – these photos really don’t do it justice. It reminded me of a Christmas haunted house. The artist Kenny Irwin Jr. created a wonderland filled with robots, lights, and music. Using anything from pool filters, microwaves, toilets and surge protectors the exhibit was larger than life in his 2 acre backyard. It’s 100% worth the day or night trip from Los Angeles.

Robolights is open 4- 9 PM Rain or Shine til 1.6.15.
