If you are looking for a new destination to visit in 2011, you may want to think about Joshua Tree. Even if you've been to the area before, chances are you haven't seen its latest resort - a place called Hicksville. KPCC's Alex Cohen paid a visit.
Tucked away on a desolate road off the Twentynine Palms highway, Hicksville is not your typical desert resort. There's no hotel or golf course, just seven vintage trailers where you can spend a night or two.
Each trailer has its own theme, and they're eye-popping. Hicksville's proprietor, Morgan Higby Night, set up the outpost as an eco-friendly artists' retreat, with a saltwater pool, low-flow toilets and a recording/film editing studio.
Check out a slideshow of the trailers here:
