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.
