Kathy Rudolph Petrino has many favorite destinations, but one of the best, from her perspective, is the Coachella Valley,located in the California Low Desert. It’s not as popular as it was in the 1950s and 1960s, when the Rat Pack rant the region and had a lot of influence, the nostalgic vibe transports travelers to a simpler time. The Low Desert region features many fully-restored hotels and rental homes that will take you right back to that era, and you’ll practically hear Frank, Dean and Sammy come to life again. There is also the Coachella Music Festival, and other features that turn the area into a veritable paradise for hikers and rock climbers, including Joshua Tree National Park and Salvation Mountain.
