About Joshua Tree
Joshua Tree is named after the native yucca brevifolia, the beautiful desert will amaze you with its serene beauty. The park straddles the cactus-dotted Colorado Desert and the Mojave Desert, and overlooks the Coachella Valley. The beautiful desert in Joshua Tree National Park beckons all rock climbers, hikers, and campers to its rocky slopes. The cactus gardens, ruins of ghost towns, and stargazing make it a must-stop on any trip to the desert.
Have you ever wanted to visit a real western movie set? You can do just that in the hills above Yucca Valley in the Joshua Tree Gateway Communities. In the late 1940s, an idea was conceived to create a practical Western movie town and location studio. Incredibility enough, many of the buildings in modern-day Pioneertown stand almost as they did decades ago. They are genuine buildings instead of facades or false fronts. Take a walk along scenic Mane Street and visit the many shops that now occupy the buildings. And a not-to-be-missed experience is Pappy and Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace where a rustic ambiance and delicious food are the order of the day. In the evenings, you can enjoy live music while your dining.
