And -- It's Okay to be Gay in Twentynine Palms!

What can I say? The Morongo Basin and Twentynine Palms are definitely the best-kept secrets in the Mojave. Clean air, starry nights, awesome sunsets, and the arts all combine to make 29 a great place to visit.

A sizable, and growing, GLBT community can be found here. It's not Palm Springs, but that's what makes this area so great!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The nearest mall is in Palm Desert.
  • Cons:Umm . . . I can't think of any!
  • In a nutshell:It really is paradise!

    Terrific Page! I knew there was more to do there and wanted to go back! We had one night for a day in Joshua Tree NP - stayed at Circle C lodge but ate at 29 Palms Inn - Thanks so much for the memories - and incentive to return. My sis is due a visit!

    The Sun Runner now covers all of the California deserts, and is distributed throughout the desert. We moved (still in 29 Palms). 760-367-6410, www.thesunrunner.com. Give us a shout next time you're out this way! Steve Brown, Publisher/Executive Editor

    I love this page! It's nice to find someone who is as enthusiastic about this amazing desert place as I am. I was only able to live there for a short time but I miss it more than I can say!

    Congrats on such a thorough 29 Palms page. It is excellent! You love the town as much as we do and champion the same causes. Maybe we will meet you at the Inn some day. It is our hang out too. Best, Mary & Scott

    Brings back some memories. I was in the "STUMPS" back in 82-83. A "FROC ROCKER". Pretty cool. Sure miss the place, gotta go visit sometime.

    Wow, great pics and great information. Sounds like a real interesting place. I will be visiting twentynine palms and wonder valley in early May. Looking forward to seeing the desert in all its glory...and the starry nights.
