Enjoy the Changing Colors in Joshua Tree

A top activity for travelers to enjoy over Halloween in this area is to set aside time to hike and explore their way through Joshua Tree National Park. While this locale is loved by adventurers year-round, there’s something about the changing colors of October that makes it extra irresistible. In the fall, desert plants are in prime season giving hikers an extra splash of color to enjoy as they venture out on the national park trails. Whether you’re trekking independently or enjoying a guided tour of the park, Joshua Tree is a destination that’s sure to inspire. Be sure to bring your camera along for a hike this time of year as you’re bound to come across views and colorful moments that you’re going to want to remember.

Explore Sun Alley Shops

A Joshua Tree journey is one that’s easy to customize no matter when you arrive-especially if you spend some time at Sun Alley Shops! Located next to the Crochet Museum, Sun Alley Shops is a collection of unique and eclectic stores along Twentynine Palms Highway that offers up a one-of-a-kind inventory of products to browse and purchase. During Halloween, it’s fair to say that the inventory takes a turn for the even more innovative! This gives travelers even more reasons to set out and enjoy some charming retail therapy experiences during their seasonal Joshua Tree stay. While you won’t have any trouble finding shops that specialize in apparel, body oils, handmade soaps, and more, those looking to really dive into the Halloween-themed shopping fun will want to begin at Space Cowboy Books.

Make the Most of Traditional Halloween Fun in the Area

If you’re in town with the little ones this Halloween and you’re looking to infuse some more traditional Halloween-fun activities into your itinerary, the Jack-O-Lantern Jubilee in Twentynine Palms is a must. This event will be held on Friday, October 27, 2023, between 5:00 pm and 9:00 pm at Del Vale Road and 4th Street. Guests can come as they are or in their Halloween costume best to enjoy this not-so-scary and family-friendly gathering. It’s designed to be a night of trick-or-treating, Halloween-themed games, activities, food, music, giveaways, and more!
