HELENE’S TRIP

TO UTAH AND ARIZONA

10 NIGHTS/8 STOPS 

A Road Trip Through Nature with Breathtaking Scenery.

Discover Helene’s travel profile and all her favorite trip itineraries.
I created a beautiful 10-day family road trip with eight stops. The children’s grandparents, Jacques and Françoise, also joined the trip. Our dream was to discover the spectacular national parks in Utah, Arizona and Nevada. We also wanted to experience the natural beauty at the parks and to hike in the magnificent surroundings. We stopped in Las Vegas to enjoy the unique gambling atmosphere of this legendary casino town. Location and comfort were key when I selected the hotels for this multi-generational road trip, where we stayed an average of one night per location.This itinerary is from April 2013.

GOOD TO KNOW

  •  www.roadtrippin.fr is an excellent app to use to plan your road trip.
  • April is the best time of the year for this trip.  It’s not too hot and not crowded.
  • In the US National Parks, you will not find the most charming hotels. They are clean and practical. Some have great views.
  • The food tends to be boring and there is little variety, i.e. hamburgers and Caesar salads. Try to plan ahead and pick up a picnic and groceries on the way.
  • Restaurants close early, so plan on eating between 5 pm-7 pm.
  • Keep in mind that kids less than 21 years old are not allowed inside the Casinos.
  • Check also this website that provides tips for saving on your next vacation to a National Park: list of fee free days, off season dates and lodging tips.
