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!


Joshua Tree Birthday Weekend.

I rented a little house in Twentynine Palms for my 29th birthday weekend last month. We cooked, drank too much prosecco, roasted marshmallows (and vienna sausage) and hot tubbed (new verb?) all weekend. We also went to Pioneertown for Dinner at Pappy and Harriet’s – such a cute little spot.

It was so nice to get away from the city with close friends. We just spent a few hours in the park but I was able to capture the gorgeousness you see below!

One of these days I’d LOVE to go to Social Pool  – who’s with me?! You pick up a key in LA and they give you GPS coordinates for where this pool in the middle of the desert is. The only thing is you have to return it within 24 hours. It could be a 2 hour hike depending on where you park.
