Roadtripping Through California- Travel by the comfort of you own car with the peace of mind you are closer to home.


Palm Springs and Joshua Tree are the quintessential weekend road trips for people living in Los Angeles and San Diego. A 2-3 hour drive straight into the sandy, cactus loving heat basin of California.


On the way, you pass an iconic 65-foot dinosaur, Pioneertown, coveted outlet stores, and massive energy inducing windmills.



Welcome to The Desert!
