Joshua Tree National Park is a 3 minute drive outside of Las Vegas, and that park was a big draw to the area for me.
I thought the scenery looked so cool.
I debated on where I should book my stay plus decided that staying in Las Vegas would be best. I would only want a afternoon in the park, however one long drive that afternoon wouldn’t be too bad. I felt the park was worth it. Then afterwards I would have everything I could want in the city. I am so thankful I booked a hotel in the city. Joshua Tree National Park wasn’t what I thought. It was just a tree in the harsh heat. I was bored within a few moments. I still walked around, took pictures plus did all the tourist stuff. It wasn’t the highlight of my trip. I didn’t brag about Joshua tree plus tell almost everyone I believe they had to see it. Instead what I brought back story wise was how neat Vegas was. I enjoyed eating some actually wonderful meals, shopping in high end stores plus trying legal weed. I liked that recreational cannabis was allowed there. I was able to just walk into a dispensary plus chance out what I wanted. I liked getting a little high, finding a wonderful site to eat plus watching the neighborhood start up for the night, and las Vegas is actually fun for a few afternoons. I gambled a bit too because you have to be in that area. I would not have thought that gambling would be more fun than a national park, however it was.
