Joshua Tree, California

Population: 4,000
Elevation : 2,800 feet

Joshua Tree is a community of artists, musicians, working families, businesspeople, telecommuters and retirees. Downtown has four art galleries, a yoga studio, two outfitters, a bakery with a shady courtyard for coffee and wi-fi, beautiful gift shops, great burgers and great vegan fare, even a pizza parlor that dishes up home-cooked Indian food. Saturday morning there's a Certified Farmers Market right in town. A National Park Visitors Center is located right off the main drag, so you can park there and check out the shops before you head to our backyard, Joshua Tree National Park.

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.
