After many months of staying at home and a negative Covid-19 test, we ventured down south to Palm Springs & Joshua Tree, California. With little traffic, it took us about 5 hours each way. To be honest, I was just going primarily to relax by the pool at our Airbnb, not do any work, and to feel refreshed for the new year. Although some things we wanted to do were closed, we were still able to make the most of this fun and unique city.
We appreicated that the city was very stict with obeying the state orders and provided patrons with a safe experience. We either got take-out or used DoorDash for food. We then explored outside. Yay for fresh air and 80 degree temperatures, and ventured to Joshua Tree for an afternoon and did some socially-distanced photos. We also took advantage of all the great architecture and history by creating our own driving tour. Although some of the main attractions were closed, and we couldn’t get the full foodie experience, we still really enjoyed our stay.
I definitely want to return when the Art Museum, Botanical Gardens, and The Parker hotel are open. And definitely go back to Joshua Tree and go on a hike or two! Until then, I will dream of that warm California Sunshine that we were blessed with in the middle of January.
