With Coachella coming up, people are looking for cool places — or really, any place — to stay in or near Indio, California during the festival. And while it might be difficult being able to find gorgeous, affordable accommodations while the festival is taking place, people who aren't headed to Coachella should definitely still make the trip to the Valley to take in the beautiful desert and mountain views. Regardless of whether or not you're gearing up for the festival, these five places to stay near Coachella are worth visiting to host a fun gathering of your own with your closest friends.
From a community of airstreams and an incredible open-air bedroom in Joshua Tree, to a bright bungalow that screams California vibes in Palm Springs, these accommodations are just as picturesque and Instagrammable as the actual festival. You can put on your desert boots, a cute little hat, and a fringe dress, grab your SO or bestie, and live your best life in the California sunshine.
If you're looking for ways to feel like you're a part of the Coachella culture without actually going to the festival, check out these six Airbnbs and hotels for the ultimate #desertgoals experience.
