If you know me at all, I’ve always found solace in wandering. Whether it was discovering something new in my city or wandering just a bit further to unplug. This past week, I was able to check out The Joshua Tree House (aka the most Instagram-worthy house in Joshua Tree) and disconnect in the desert with some great company. I wanted to share a roundup of my thoughts from my trip and share some of the places we wandered off to.
The Joshua Tree House
I’m sure you’re all very familiar with the famous Joshua Tree House that has taken Instagram and the press by storm. I booked this literally last September for a stay in January but when plans didn’t work out, had to postpone it to June. Needless to say, this place is always booked. And for good reason! It was a great place to disconnect from the real world a bit and really refocus and get inspired again.
The aesthetics of The Joshua Tree House are just ON POINT. Not to mention, everything was super cozy. There was a nice kitchen to cook our meals in each day, two rooms that had big comfy Casper beds, and a nice Jacuzzi in the backyard. Here are some photos so you can catch a little glimpse of it!
Not only that, but the porch was the perfect spot to catch the sunset AND sunrise. Both were magical! *heart eyes all day*
Wander-Worthy Spots in Joshua Tree
Joshua Tree isn’t the biggest place, but it has to be one of the coolest destinations I’ve been to. With the unique trees surrounding the town, the beautiful desert landscape, and the quietness of the area – it was the perfect little getaway. I wanted to share a few things we did while we were there, granted it wasn’t much. I didn’t take too many photos since I really wanted to just disconnect, but here are my thoughts on the destinations we got to visit and a few photos of the things we did do.
Joshua Tree National Park
We spent a day at the Joshua Tree National Park on our second day. Once we entered from the West Entrance, we got to peruse different grounds and climb the rocks and just chill. Each spot was fairly different but I think our favorite spot was Jumbo Rocks! We didn’t get to check out the whole park, but it was quite the adventure nonetheless. We saw a few rabbits and even a snake! The views reminded me a lot of what The Flintstones Era must’ve been like.
Noah Purifoy Outdoor Desert Art Museum
This must’ve been the most random and most eclectic collection of outdoor art I’ve seen. And it just made sense. It was very unique and something you definitely had to check out in person to see for yourself. The Noah Purifoy Outdoor Desert Art Museum is open everyday from 9-5, and well worth it! It was only 10 minutes away from the entrance to the National Park! So definitely make a little stop if you can!
Other Things you Should Check Out if you’re Visiting
We didn’t get to explore as much since we spent most of our time in our AirBnb, but there are some other great things I think you should check out, and are still on my list to check out for myself!
- World Famous Crochet Museum – This was super cute and a really quick visit when I went last year, it was right across the street from the coffee spot and was a great spot to just explore and see a bit of the crochet collection!
- Joshua Tree Coffee Company – Delicious nitro coffee cold brew! I miss it already!
- Giant Rock
One Last Thing Joshua Tree Taught Me
This spoke volumes to me. And I left Joshua Tree so inspired and so motivated to live my life to the absolute fullest! I’m so excited and I can’t wait to finally pursue the life I know I am capable of. There will be some changes in the near future, so bare with me, but I hope you continue to follow my journey!
