Just about 130 miles from the busy, nerve-racking, and congested streets of downtown Los Angeles, there’s a place where you can unwind and enjoy what California has to offer. It is Joshua Tree National Park.
Congress declared it a national park in 1936 under Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Later, Joshua Tree was re-designated as a national park in 1994 when the U.S. Congress passed the California Desert Protection Act.
The park is approximately 790,636 acres. Of course, this park was named after the Joshua tree. Spring is the best time to visit this park, and the fall is also great. Spring and fall are the times when temperatures average between 85 degrees and 50 degrees at night.
During summer days, the temperatures can pass the 100-degree mark, and at night time about 75 degrees until the early hours of the morning. No matter what time of the year you plan to go, whether spring, summer, fall, or winter, you will definitely enjoy this trip.
Now, more than ever during this time never seen before, Joshua Tree Park is the perfect place.
While in the park it would be many miles around you before you make contact with another person making this a social distance experience.
