9 DAYS, 8 NIGHTS customizable package
PRICES starting from $1319.00 per person based on double occupancy
On this Wild West romp through Arizona, Nevada, and Utah, you will pay homage to six major locations to witness breathtaking red rock formations, slot canyons, and otherworldly stone arches. On the road, you’ll get glimpses of the rare saguaro cacti with mesas and buttes off in the distance. Here in the Southwest, when the sun sets, people turns their faces towards he mountains to see them pulsate in shades of gold, orange, pink, and crimson.

In Arizona, you will spy the joyful Snoopy beagle (from the Peanuts cartoon), frozen as a natural rock sculpture lying on his back in Sedona.  By the time you get to Utah’s Bryce Canyon National Park, its hoodoo spires will leave you mesmerized.  In Nevada, manmade Lake Las Vegas is an exhilarating watersport playground for yachting, electric boating, and flyboarding, an adventure that jettisons a thrill-seeker in the air via a 55-foot hose filled with water.

Finally, through museums and historic tours, squint through the lens of the past to learn about the Native American tribes who dwelled in caves and concocted medicinal poultices from shrubs, flowers, and bark.  Picture wranglers camping in the stillness under starry skies.  You will join them soon. Gas up the Bronco.  Pull on your cowboy boots.  And buckle in for the ride.   Yee ha!

Southwest National Park Road Trip Highlights

Sedona

The New Age town of Sedona is confident visitors will agree its slogan, “the most beautiful place on earth,” for nowhere else will you uncover glowing red sandstone formations aptly named Cathedral Rock, Steamboat Rock, and Coffee Pot Rock. Coast the Red Rock Scenic Byway to take in the eye candy. Some 1.8 million acres of national forest surround Sedona, and you will be treated to mesas, buttes, and more than 400 miles of trails. Chapel of the Holy Cross, a modern architectural icon that seems chiseled into the mountains, and the stunning Red Rock State Park are but a few of its official treasures. Local and regional parks proliferate. Jeep tours, helicopter rides, and ballooning excursions enable you to see and feel the landscape from diverse vantage points. This international destination also has a reputation for high-quality Southwestern art as seen through its many galleries, and a visit to the Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village will prove this true.

Verde Canyon

A friendly neighbor next to Sedona, Verde Canyon, as everyone says, is best experienced from the seat of the Verde Canyon Railroad, a train comprised of heritage boxcars, each with a different theme. The 3.5 hour, 21-mile train ride is an adventure that begins in the cowboy town of Clarkdale, home of the always-popular Arizona Copper Art Museum. Train riders learn about area history and geography as well as exciting four-legged and feathered inhabitants: the pig-like javelina and bald eagles. The train depot features a museum, gift shop, and a café, all open to the public. Meanwhile, at Tuzigoot National Monument, you’ll wander ancient pueblo remains.

Monument Valley

The Monument Valley Tribal Park, owned by the Navajo Nation, spans more than 91,000 acres, covering both Utah and Arizona. Begin your pilgrimage at the park’s Arizona visitor center in the northern part of the state where you’ll be awed by the panorama of mesas and buttes. Found at 5,564 feet above sea level, the park is a proverbial hidden gem. Be the first in your friend group to brag about its sandstone skyscrapers that tower up to 1,000 feet. Various tours such as the sunrise, sunset, and stargazing excursions are led by members of the Navajo Nation. Experience Native American living when you arrange a night in a traditional Navajo home or hogan.

Bryce Canyon

A Utah favorite, Bryce Canyon celebrated for its signature 8,000 to 9,000-foot-high hoodoos, red rocks that have eroded into long tall spires. While you can find hoodoos in other parts of the world, Bryce Canyon boasts the highest concentration of hoodoos anywhere. The park offers many lookout points accessible by car and provides activities such as horseback riding, hiking, and camping. In this alpine environment, visitors will also discover waterfalls and mule deer. The All-American Road Scenic Byway 12 (more than 120 bucolic miles) and official Cycling Scenic Byway (approximately 27 miles) pass through this national park for unforgettable auto or bicycle cruising.

Zion National Park

Immerse yourself in outdoor grandeur beyond imagination in southwest Utah. Sweeping landscapes of high-walled slot canyons with Big Horn sheep and swarms of bats remind you that you are in Nature’s amphitheater. This 229-square-mile masterpiece deserves a capital A for adrenalin, for Zion supports the sport of canyoneering which combines rappelling, swimming, hiking, and route finding. In the summer, temperatures hit 100 degrees. It is no wonder people are advised to drink a gallon of water a day to stay hydrated. In the fall, Zion explodes with autumn color. Located in Springdale, the park’s topography is lavished with arches, mesas, deserts, and unique slot canyons where walls of sheer rock appear to sandwich its visitors.

Lake Las Vegas

This manmade lake was designed for comfort. Nestled in Henderson, a suburb outside of the Las Vegas gambling strip, the 320-acre body of water delivers splashing refreshment for couples and families seeking an active vacation where the term “roughing it,” is never uttered. Posh Hilton Lake Las Vegas Resort and Spa and the Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort and Spa represent the two luxury properties anchoring the recreation area, but hundreds of vacation condo and house rentals are available for the asking. The lake offers a waterpark with obstacle course, electric boating, kayaking, and host of watercraft suitable for young and old.
