29 Palms is the gateway to Joshua Tree National Park. Remember Joshua Tree does not have any accomodation, restaurants, stores etc. inside the park. Hence, when visiting make sure you carry supply of water, snacks and make sure your gas tank is full.
You can also have wedding in Joshua Tree National Park with prior notice and scheduling with the National Park Services beforehand (NPS). The park is always open, it never closes. The park is also great for star gazing.
Guided tours can be booked with www.nomadventures.com
Joshua Tree Retreat center hosts spiritual retreats, meditation camps, sound baths etc. for those interested.
29 Palms or Pioneertown are the best locations to stay while visiting Joshua Tree National Park (one of my favourite parks).
Properties in 29 Palms like Camel house and Rimrock Ranch are popular for weddings. Top hotels include 29 Palms Inn & Campbell house. I stayed at Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott which was not bad, there is also a Best Western owned by an Indian Family as well.
While entering the park take the Oasis entrance which is always less crowded than the main entrance.
