The One Park In Southern California That May Become Your New Favorite Destination

We all know and love Southern California for its pristine beaches, mild climate, and relaxing coastal cities. But there’s another side of SoCal that’s equally inviting but often underrated — its desert side.

To experience the unspoiled beauty of the SoCal desert, it’s hard to resist a day trip to this natural oasis where SoCal’s desert side comes to life in a big way.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

There are several memorable events coming up at The Living Desert including WildLights, Breakfast with the Animals, and Mildly Wild New Year’s Eve.
