This is a great place to grab a coffee on your way in or your way out. Breakfast is decent here as they are mindful and have a lot of gluten free and vegetarian options.

You would never guess but this place is amazing for the pho!! Yes I said it for the Pho, the donuts are not bad either. Lam was a military guy that purchased this operation and has a blast talking about his passion pho. Very creative naming convention as it’s quite poetic. Ask him what it means or you can figure it out yourself.

This is another one missed by most tourist, but one to add to your list. The drinks are poured heavy and the food is well seasoned. Always an artistic twist and about the most hip place here in the desert with great decor. One of my favorites!

This place is a little swanky, and a great place to hang a more upscale bar while visiting the desert. The food is to die for here and the drink compliment that as well. This is one of the newest places that is helping refine our desert.

This is a great place to visit, check out the Pioneer Town lodge as they have some cool merch. There is a cool night life with the bowling alley and abar that has outdoor seating and small eats. There are a few mom and pop shops, my favorite being general store which is a super cool vintage shop owned my Sarah Tabbs. Who also owns a cool vintage shop on hwy 62 called the Nitty Gritty which is worth checking out.

So the Barker Dam is one of my go to hikes if I am bringing anyone into the park for the first time. It's a 1 mile loop that you can do fast or take it slow and check out the petroglyphs.
