You may have noticed that our Best of the Valley is arriving a little earlier this year. After careful consideration, we moved this indispensable compendium of top spots to the start of the season and with gusto you opened your browsers, cast your votes and the winners emerged.
Among them is Best New Restaurant, and in the pages of our December issue we will take you there for a closer look and insight into how they are raising the culinary bar to the desert. Find out what restaurant won in the pages of the December issue of Desert Magazine this Sunday.
Just in time for the holidays, we take you to Joshua Tree for an adventure in back roads shopping. We also bring you tips on turning at-home entertaining into a cinch from two busy valley professionals who, no matter their active work schedules, endeavor to delight guests with a memorable experience.And, we delve into some simple ways to turn a garden into your own personal slice of paradise with a look at some magnificent examples of desert-inspired landscaping techniques.
