We’ve been told time and again that travel is about the journey, not the destination. This is true even when the journey is incredibly short. If you are planning to land at LAX and make your way into the desert for Coachella, you could get there in two hours (well, four hours with traffic). If you have some extra time on your hands, you could actually make the two-hour trek into a week-long road trip through impressive dynamic terrain while hitting some of America’s great tourist attractions. From the mountains to the desert, from the sea to shining In-N-Out Burger you can hit it all on your way to America’s greatest festival. Here is From Los Angeles to Indio: The Ultimate Coachella Road Trip.
