Best remote bar / club in the area
Check out the Palms Restaurant and Saloon, about 30 minutes east of Joshua Tree, in the remote desert area of Wonder Valley.
Not far from the Joshua Tree National Park, and lots of free camping nearby. :) Other local activities include artist's open studio events, horseback rding, dirt biking, hiking, etc.
Clientele is part biker, part artist-locals, and the burgers and fries are good AND a good deal!
Music events semi-weekly, check their site for details:

Bright sunny days and star gazing extravaganza
Coyote Hole is featured on my website with lots of pics.
I've hiked with my girlfriend to the top of Copper Mountain....glorious view. We drove over the Pinto Mountains road in the JTNP all the way back to Hwy. 62. Very scary narrow, steep, rocky road for the wildly adventurous. I'd advise traveling with two vehicles, water, food, tools and a camera.
Don't miss a dinner at the 29 Palms Inn in 29 Palms, and weekend smorgasbord at the Royal Siam Thai restaurant in Joshua Tree.
See Frank Lloyd Wright architecture at the Institute of Mentalphysics. They have an awesome bookstore/giftshop too.
Check out the former home of Bev Doolittle and hike south. We saw lizards, tortoise, big cat prints; silent and awesome out there!
Visit the Noah Purifoy Foundation home that is a wonderland of Noah's art.
Always ask to see local artist media and crafts wherever you shop!!
Stop at the Joshua Tree Chamber of Commerce for maps and info and have fun in the Park!

This house, owned by an extremely wealthy local artist, has been under construction since the early 1990s. This house used to be the talk of the town for many years when it alone seemed to keep part of the local economy humming. Now complete (we assume) except for some finish work along the street, this place is quite a sight. Designed by the architectural firm that used to design Chart House Restaurants in the 1960s and 70s.
Take Highway 62, 5 miles east of Joshua Tree and turn right (south) on Mount Shasta Road until it ends 1 mile up.
Besides viewing it from the road the house can be viewed from Joshua Tree National Park, just past the barbed wire fence that reads PARK BOUNDERY.
