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!

JT Country Kitchen

I found the CUTEST, TINEST little greasy spoon restaurant just outside Joshua Tree. I squealed upon seeing the front of the place.

Anthony Bourdain went here on No Reservations, as can be seen on the wall throughout the restaurant. The cutest owners were incredibly friendly. Biscuits and gravy, eggs, corned beef hash and so much more was ordered.

There’s probably enough seats for 20 people total. The milkshakes are divine. Please stop by if you’re ever in the area!

Joshua Tree National Park

An artist I work with filmed a video in Joshua Tree and it was absolutely beautiful. Here are some of my favorite shots. I am not much of a camper with out a good shower / flushing toilet but I’d definitely rough it for a weekend out here again.
