Joshua Tree is home to Copper Mountain College, offering Associate degrees and certificates in the arts, business, technical and medical fields. Also based here is the Hi-Desert Medical Center, the primary regional provider of health services to more than 68,000 people. Cultural institutions include the Hi-Desert Cultural Center, home of the Kaye Ballard Playhouse, and the Joshua Tree Retreat Center, a world-famous meditation, yoga and conference center designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and his son, Lloyd Wright.
There are lodgings in Joshua Tree for those on a budget, for the luxury-minded, and for everyone in between. Stay in a historic rock'n'roll motel downtown, or a quiet B-and-B in the hills, or a charming vacation home filled with the work of local artists. Who knows? You may end up a resident, like so many of us who came here first as visitors.
Joshua Tree is easy to get to: just 30 minutes from Palm Springs and within three hours' drive of Los Angeles, San Diego and Las Vegas. Yet we're very far away. With our other-worldly landscape, starry nights and desert quiet, we call our neighborhood Planet Joshua Tree ... Like Earth, Only Better. If you would like additional information, please call or email the Chamber of Commerce. And be sure to drop by if you're in town! We're happy to answer all your questions.
