California Desert: Palm Springs, Joshua Tree, and the San Andreas Fault

Starting from: Los Angeles

Duration: 4 days

Length: 490 mi

The Southern California desert is a fascinating locale of rare natural wonders, carefully curated mid-century lifestyles, and iconoclastic locals. Don’t let the forbidding landscape deceive you. Amid the sandy expanses you'll find upscale dining, unique shopping, and Palm Springs haunts popular with past and present Hollywood stars. Elsewhere, a Coachella Valley oasis shimmers along the San Andreas fault, and a Mad Max-style artists' enclave endures by the desolate Salton Sea. Photo credit: Reagan Kastner
