The Airbnb Edit: Joshua Tree

Joshua Tree national park in Yucca Valley is one of those iconic SoCal destinations that’s immensely popular but offers few options in the way of conventional accommodations. So unless you’re the camping type—or day-tripping in from nearby Palm Springs—a rental is your best bet. Below, we rounded up some Airbnb properties that range in price and are in close proximity to the park and its namesake town, which is equal parts artsy and on-the-low cool. While you’re there, plan a visit to the Integration sound baths, The End vintage store, and the Joshua Tree Saloon for a live show or Karaoke.
