Get a hemp-y smoothie and shaved carrot-heavy salad at The Natural Sisters Cafe, pick through dusty shelves of glossy rocks, Mexican jumping beans, incense, and Clif Bars at Coyote Corner, and then go get lost on beds of hot boulders.
With its Dr. Seuss-esque trees and sweeping skies, Joshua Tree is just the place for a weird, relaxing, and mysterious mini-vacation. Make sure that everything you pack can fit into a single backpack and then forget about your life for the weekend. If you wander far enough into the park, you’ll even lose cell reception–the ultimate luxury.
