Inspire to Create

Attention artists, and all creative types. If you are looking for something new to spark your creativity, I recently stayed in a wonderful hotel. Desert Pearl Inn is located at the entrance to Zion National Park in Springdale Utah. It is about a seven hour drive from LA, but so worth it. Grab your easel, paints or camera and indulge in the wonders of Zion National Park.

Artist Retreat

If you are a plein air painter or a photographer – this is the place to be. We all need a bit of inspiration and a place to relax no matter what we do for a living. Offering much needed serenity, away from all the deadlines you may have to deal with in LA, enjoy luxury, comfort and the stillness of the silent beauty of Zion.

We recently visited this hotel on our “Road Trip to the Rockies” with our sister website – ETG; CLICK HERE To read my review on

Be sure to visit the website for more info, and to see photos, as its even prettier in the Spring. But if  you love snow, winter is also a wonerful time to stay. Desert Pearl Inn, 707 Zion Park Blvd. Springdale, UT, 84767;
