As the editor of Desert Lifestyle magazine, I’d like to welcome you to our online community. Whatever has brought you here, whether it’s your enjoyment of our print edition, your search for something to do this weekend or your desire to be part of the conversation, you’ve now become part of a unique culture. Here, military spouses, retirees, active duty and local citizens come together to share their love for our beautiful desert and all that it has to offer. At, we’re here to help you become a deeper part of our Twentynine Palms community. On this site, we’ve put together your favorite feature, travel and MCCS articles. You can submit photos, check out the community calendar or share your thoughts on the latest book you’ve read. My personal favorite is this very page – our community forum. Here, you’ll be able to share your own travel destinations, hidden desert treasures and feedback on all that Desert Lifestyle has to offer.

 Welcome to!
