The husband and I decided to go on a little getaway for our one year anniversary (time flies when you’re having fun). We went to Palm Springs. What a fun adventure it was. We stayed at La Quinta Resort and Club. The grounds are gorgeous and the staff was amazing. We did lots of lounging by the beautiful pool.
I have always wanted to visit Joshua Tree (the inner-hippie in me). We decided to take one day, and go explore the “ghost town”. We stopped as soon as we arrived in Joshua Tree, to grab some food, at a really great place called Crossroads Cafe. The small cafe reminded me of a struggling musician hangout, with really chill folks. The food was delicious. lots of vegan items and smoothies, along with some yummy sandwiches. After exiting the cafe we drove 1/2 a block to the entrance of Joshua Tree National Park. Wow! The most amazing place I have ever been. We drove 12 miles and reached 5600ft, to see the most beautiful view. I suggest checking this place out. You will not be disappointed. After gawking for a good hour, we headed back to Palm Springs to relax some more before going home.
This was the perfect little getaway. Thank you, husband.
PS Palm Springs had a Target and Homegoods store, which I had to stop at, because as you know (or may not know), Santa Barbara has neither.
