Family Road Trip - Western USA

Jump to last reply

My lovely wife and two beautiful daughters aged 12 and 9 are planning a road trip out west this August. We seek insight regarding extra activities or sites worth visiting along our route. Like many, money is tight for us but we wanted to pull the trigger to cash in on some brand loyalty points.

Thanks in advance!

Day 0 - Arrive in DEN, get car & sleep
Day 1 - Drive to Mesa Verde for a couple nights lodging and tour of the cliff dwellings. Are the tours from the NPS "good enough" or are the more expensive ones that much better?
Day 3 - Hit four corners (daughter's wish) and head north through UT to ????
Day 4 - Check in hotel in ID for a couple nights
Day 5 - Grand Tetons
Day 6 - Get to Yellowstone by 4:30 pm for dinner at Old Faithful Inn. Figured we'll stay a night there to be sure we don't miss the geyser(s) that night.
Day 7 - Drive around Yellowstone to ???? staying in a cabin for a couple nights
Day 8 - Charter fishing in lake am, horseback Teddy Roosevelt experince pm
Day 9 - Leave park along Beartooth Highway eventually to mid-east WY. Hotel has a water park there which the kids will love.
Day 10 - Mt. Rushmore. In and out there. Is there a lot of spillover from Sturgis? I love bikers and all but some adults there for the show may not displaying attire that I care to have my girls see. I'd think generally bikers that do come down to Mt Rushmore would tone it down at such a patriotic site but I thought I'd ask.
Day 11 - Very late flight out of DEN
