Kickin’ it at Hicksville
On Sunday Patrick and I had our four year wedding anniversary, and to celebrate we planned a little getaway to a place I’ve been dying to stay at, Hicksville.
Inspired by the Madonna Inn, with its kitschy themed rooms, writer/director Morgan Higby Night created Hicksville by pulling together several vintage travel trailers and theming them. But the fun doesn’t stop there. On site there is a ping-pong table, photo booth, archery and BB gun range, tipi, mini golf course and much more! Plus it’s a short distance from the beauty of Joshua Tree National Park. With nine themed trailers, there were plenty of options, though our mutual love of western made the Pioneer an easy choice, as it was painted to look like a log cabin, fitted with its very own porch and was cowboy themed inside!
During our stay we also ventured to Pioneertown, which I had already visited once before, but Patrick had yet to visit. So stay tuned for another post about that place!
Patrick and I had an absolutely marvelous time, and already have plans to return in spring! If you love kitsch and the desert, I can’t recommend Hicksville enough. Be sure to read the rules and amenities of each trailer before booking to make sure you’re okay with the communal aspect of some of Hicksville’s amenities.

You two are the absolute cutest! Happy anniversary!
Yooza!! I want to go here! how cool! putting it in my must do at some point in my life trip book. Great photos and Happy Anniversary!
Happy wedding anniversary! What a neat little getaway you found!
That looks soooo fabulously fun! The little kid and the grownup in me alike both feel like running up to someone (husband? mother?) and begging to be taken there (cue the classic “Can we go to Mt. Splashmore?” scene from the Simpsons :D).
Super happy anniversary wishes to you both!!!
*PS* Your outfit is so cute! I need to start wearing adorable, vintage or otherwise fun, tees with my repro jeans more often.
That sounds like so much fun! I would love to stay there. It seems like they have a great sense of fun and whimsey to it, and it’s really cool how all of the different trailers have some kind of a theme. Your’s is very cool (and obviously the porch is a nice bonus), but I also like the one that you can see in a couple of shots that looks like a painted wagon.
That one is actually Gina’s home from the movie Big Top Pee Wee! So not only does it have a neat and wild theme, it’s also a bit of movie history, especially if you’re Pee Wee Herman fan.
That place looks so adorable!! I’ll have to check it out one of these days. You both look like you had such a blast, Happy Anniversary!
What a neat place! You fit right in. 🙂
What a wonderful place and I’m glad you posted about it! I am definitely adding this to my list of “must visit” places in California. It’s just too cute!
This place brought a big smile to my face!! It looks like you two were the only one there. How fun!! Beautiful lighting too! I love this eclectic mix of styles you can choose to stay in. I’m thinking I might quite like the 50’s aluminum trailer.
Happy anniversary! You both look to have had a lot of fun – I love the photobooth photos – how fun to have a choice of themed trailers too!
This place looks like so much fun. Great photos.
Leave it to you to find the kitchiest, most unique place ever!
Wow! This is going on my list of places to go for sure! Great photos! Happy Anniversary 😉
I literally just peed a little seeing this! That place looks amazing.
