Beautiful Cactus Garden in Joshua Tree National Park. The Cholla Cactus Garden sits directly along Pinto Basin Road, and has it's own parking area. The Cholla Gardens are a great place for a small hike.

On the Road: Next to Pinto Basin Road.

Family Friendly: Directly off of the road and the kids will love it! Don't let them get too close...
