Joshua Tree Vacation Rentals
Joshua Tree National Park encompasses approximately 800,000 acres of desert land just 40 miles east of the California-Nevada border. The land has been inhabited by humans for an estimated 5,000 years, filling it with a rich history as well as numerous archeological sites and historical structures. The park attracts thousands of visitors each week, many of whom opt to rent villas, ranch homes, and apartments nearby. The rental properties offer visitors the option of an extended stay at Joshua Tree without overextending their pocketbooks.
Plant Life at Joshua Tree
Famous for its biodiversity, Joshua Tree is home to more than 800 different plant species. Book your vacation rental between the months of March and June to view the impressive wildflowers in full bloom. A rental cabin will put you and your family right in the heart of the wilderness. Many of the local species close up during the cool nights and reopen with the sunshine in the morning, so don’t be fooled by the barren appearance at twilight. Choose a vacation rental with a nice porch or expansive windows from which you can enjoy the view.
Joshua Tree Hiking Guide
Hiking trails are by far the primary attraction at Joshua Tree. Rental homes are available within walking distance of the park entrance. If you and your family have never been to Joshua Tree before, there are a few hikes you won’t want to miss.
Dining Tips in Joshua Tree
Save money during your vacation to Joshua Tree by stocking up on groceries and cooking meals in the comfort of your own kitchen. This is an amenity that only a vacation rental can offer. Need a change of pace? Stopover at Crossroads Café & Tavern. A locally owned business, serves American food and is lauded for its casual atmosphere and fresh fare. Crossroads is a great place for grabbing breakfast before a hike, or to refuel on your way out of the park. In a rush? Grab a few sandwiches to go from a popular local deli called Ricochet. Here you can find a healthy reprieve from typical dining, and meals are inexpensive!
