Palm Springs Diary … Part 4: Visit to Pioneer Town … Part 1

Pioneer Town 

Sign
Sigh says: “Population 99”. Must be on holiday.

On our map I spotted a place called Pioneer Town – which I hoped might be an authentic Western style attraction. But it turned out to be somewhat of a tacky tourist trap. And we also discovered upon arrival that most everything here was closed – only open on Weekends at this time of year – I’ve really been batting 1000 – No Hog’s Breath Inn – No giant Marilyn Monroe statue – and now we come to Pioneer Town and everything is closed. Sheeesh. But it still proved to be interesting and a bit of fun.
