Pioneertown is fun...but you won't need to spend much time there. If you want to be in the midst of an old west town this is your place. The sunset here is spectacular!

Mainly went to try and book the restaurant but good to stroll around and take in the atmosphere. It was a quiet day when we were there and I believe there are activities on other days but we like it quiet.

Take a left off the road towards the Joshua Tree national park visitor centre about 15/20 minutes before you get to Joshua Tree and a few minutes up the road you'll find Pioneertown, a cowboy town set-up that makes a nice diversion. Some day there...More

We didn’t have much time to visit but enjoyed a quick stop to see the shops and props. Very cool looking place that is great for some quick photos and maybe a stunt show if you have small kids.
