Joshua Tree Guide With Toddler

June 21st, 2017
For my 31st birthday, I wanted to be somewhere relaxing and peaceful. We looked for a place that would provide rest our for our spirits and our minds. We found the perfect place: Joshua Tree is a gem. It’s pure magic!! It’s only 3 hours away from LAX but it exists in a world all its own. I felt like we were on in different planet!
We rented a wonderful house through Airbnb that was surrounded by nothing but millions of beautiful cactus plants and desert animals. The environment is both stark and beautiful all at once and being surrounded by nothing but nature gave us time to reflect on the year that passed and relax.
The time we spent in Joshua Tree was also amazing for all the memories we made there. We cooked every single one of our meals. We woke up every day at 4:30am to watch sunrise and go hiking in the Joshua Tree National park.
We hiked through the Barker Dam and I highly recommend it for families with children. The short hikes were wonderful for Sage. They were a good length because she wasn’t completely exhausted by the end and she could walk them herself.
During our trip, we saw many animals and I loved being able to expose Sage to wildlife she had not known about. We also went to Keys View to watch the sunset and it took our breath away.
Joshua Tree is in the desert so it gets super hot during the day and is on the cooler side in the morning and night. I packed one cashmere sweater, hiking clothes like lulu work out pants and a few long-sleeved tops. What I wore most were long-sleeved light weight cotton shirts and denim shorts. And bring plenty of water with you no matter what you do!
The house we stayed at that I got through Airbnb didn’t have a pool and Sage loves playing with water. We stopped by Walmart in Yucca Valley and got her a small round pool which kept her occupied the entire time we were there.
