Getting Around 29 Palms Map

“Dine29 Palms offers an exciting culinary adventure for all tastes and ages, ranging from classic American and authentic Mexican, to a variety of Asian cuisines, Caribbean fusion, and a fabulous new bakery.

Start your day with a hearty breakfast, and head over to Cactus Trails Café for prickly pear lemonade and a cactus omelet, or head over to John’s Place for French toast, or Denny’s for a classic grand slam.

Home to Joshua Tree National Park Headquarters, Oasis of Mara Visitor Center, and main park entrance, 29 Palms is your gateway to southern California’s most iconic National Park. Plus, 29 Palms offers the only road access to the 49 Palms Oasis, one of five natural oases found in the park, and Indian Cove, a hotspot for rock climbing.

When you’re ready for lunch, pick up a specialty sandwich from Campbell Hill Bakery, PHO from Jelly Donut, or fish tacos from Mexican Street Tacos. 

After an exhilarating day outdoors exploring the beautiful desert, you’ll be ready for dinner! You’ll definitely want to try the Dan Dannoodles and steak or veggie bowl from Kitchen In The Desert, triple threat ribs and grilled jalapenos from the Rib Co. or grab a beer and craft burger at FANS Sports Bar and Grill. 

Fashionistas will love the newly opened Donahue Clothing Co. and their colorful variety of fresh, modern, and stylish clothing, accessories, and home goods. 

And for those looking to bring a little piece of the desert home with them, be sure to check out the gift shop at the Old Schoolhouse Museum, Copy Center Plus, Perfectly Unique 29, and the 29 Palms Visitor Center where you’ll discover all kinds of desert themed locally crafted gifts. 

And don’t forget about our weekly farmers market where you can shop fresh, organic, California-grown fruits and vegetables every Saturday morning from 8:00am to 12:00pm.
