Explore Desert Oases


Wind-carved sand dunes, night skies glistening with stars, and posh resort towns beckoning like modern-day oases -- this region overflows with both natural wonders and naturally wonderful retreats. Here are some of the state’s most dramatic parklands, including Death Valley and Joshua Tree national parks, and California's largest state park, Anza-Borrego. Whether you want to rock climb by moonlight, swing a golf club, or relax poolside under the palms in Palm Springs, there’s a desert experience to suit your style.
