What do you need to know to plan a trip to Joshua Tree National Park? We happen to be experts on this topic, as we’ve been visiting the park regularly for decades. And we’ve been venturing out there a lot lately to research, write, test, and double-check our Just Ahead tour of Joshua Tree National Park.
Joshua Tree is easy to get to, easy to drive through, and always a pleasure to visit, especially with Just Ahead’s narrated audio tour playing on your smartphone.
But it is also a remote desert area. That’s what makes it a compelling place to visit. But at the same time, a visit to Joshua Tree requires smart planning. So it helps to have an insider’s take on trip preparation, where to stay, where to camp, and so on.
