World-Famous Crochet Museum

About as odd as it sounds, this once disused photo-processing booth is now a bright green-painted home for artist Shari Elf’s crochet collection. The space is filled with every type of crocheted item you can imagine – from poodles to handbags and pizzas. We’re not kidding when we say it’s an essential visit.

Joshua Tree National Park

Two desert ecosystems, The Mojave and The Colorado, meet in this vast national park made up of 794,000 acres. Drive through the desert to see large rock formations, cactus gardens and the famous joshua tree. Stay in one of the nine different camping grounds for the ultimate stargazing experience.

Beauty Bubble Hair Salon

Jeff Hafler calls himself a ‘hairstorian’ when talking about the 3,000 salon and hair artefacts he exhibits at his tiny roadside salon, Beauty Bubble. Every inch of the space is covered with multicoloured wigs, Barbies, vintage beauty ads and old-fashioned barber tools. Get a cut and blow-dry for a one-on-one with Jeff.

The End

When 90210’s former costume designer Kime Buzzelli opened up this vintage store on a dirt road o the Palms Highway, everyone must have thought she was mad. But a few years later, The End has become a port of call for all fashionable travellers heading through Joshua Tree (and a quintessential Instagram shot.)
