As Mayor, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Town of Yucca Valley’s website and hope

Come and explore our antiques in Old Town, our art galleries, our High Desert Nature
Museum, and our one-of-a-kind night skies and clean air. When it comes to recreation,
we offer something for everyone! Yucca Valley is located minutes away from the Johnson
Valleys world-famous off-road vehicle area, as well as all the hiking and equestrian
trails in and around Joshua Tree National Park--not to mention fantastic rock climbing.
Naturalists will enjoy bird watching, wild flowers and wildlife like none other in Southern
California. Snow sports in Big Bear and water sports at the Colorado River are only a short
drive away from our desert town.
On behalf of our 22,000 citizens who call Yucca Valley home, I want to invite you to come
and discover why we came for a day and stayed for a lifetime!
