If you follow me on Instagram, you already got a glimpse into our road trip last weekend to Joshua Tree in California. We stayed at a place called Hicksville, which was nothing short amazing- a hotel with vintage trailers, each decked out in a different theme. It’s a solar powered artist retreat- complete with recording studio and editing trailer, if you’re so inclined. It’s in the middle of nowhere and you don’t get the address until the week of your stay when they send you directions.
We stayed in The Fifi, designed by Ryan and Marci Hessling of Fifi Mahony’s wig store in New Orleans. It was decked out in purple and gold- with velvet bedding, vintage barware, and glowing wig heads. The grounds has a bunch of activities like a mini golf course with each hole representing a trailer, archery, a pool, jukebox, rooftop hot tub, and cooking areas. There was also a teepee that you could have a campfire inside, and one night we played Cards of Humanity in there with some other visitors. We met some cool people there and it’s definitely a place you’re excited to come back to after a day of exploring to hang around the campfire.
It was definitely glamping at it’s finest- we had electricity, wifi, and heat/ac in the trailers, but with only one bathroom and shower there was some roughing it too. We skipped the showers and spent a couple of days enjoying that campfire smell :)
Above is the Pee Wee trailer, from the movie Big Top Pee Wee. That one is on the list for future visits!
