Sometimes you just need to get away! Palm Springs had never crossed my mind as the ideal getaway for a last-minute girls trip, but it turns out, the mix of chic relaxation at oodles of B&Bs and hotels like Hotel Zoso (which is now a Hard Rock Hotel), plus the nearby stunning Joshua Tree National Park, make this desert destination a top choice for those who want it all. Adventure, pampering, fitness challenges, peace—oh and panoramic desert sunsets.
The sunsets are beautiful over the desert expanse. When the sun goes down, the temperature drops rapidly though, so dress warm.
Rock climbing and bouldering are top draws in J Tree, with its craggy rockfaces and perfect views across its 900,000 square miles. Best time to climb is October through April, with the majority
of it being trad climbing.
