First trip out West - Taking camper - Need Ideas

Jump to last reply

We are planning our first trip out west this summer. There is SO much to see, I don't really know where to start. We will be starting in Mississippi & pulling a camper. It will be my parents, our boys (ages 10 & 14), my husband & myself. (and a dog : ). We have 17 days, but the first 3 & last 2 will be mostly travel days.
Here is our plan so far:

Arrive in Cortez, CO on day 3 -
We will have 2 1/2 days in this area. We want to visit Mesa Verde & the Four Corners area. Any other ideas in the area?

Then travel to Williams, AZ -
We will have 4 days in the area. Of course our #1 thing to do here is the Grand Canyon! We have looked at the Grand Canyon Railway & would like to raft the Colorado River. Other ideas??? Sedona area??

Next we will travel to the Tucson area -
We will have 2 1/2 days here. We know we want to visit Tombstone. Other suggestions??

Our last stop will be somewhere near Carlsbad, NM -
We will have 3 days in this area. We are not sure where we will be staying in this area so it is flexible as long as we can make it to Carlsbad Caverns.

Any ideas would be great! We could actually take a day of the 3 in southern NM if we need another day somewhere else. We will have two vehicles, so ideas that would be more for either my parents or us with the kids would be great too. (if we raft, my parents will do something else) We have marked so many things we would like to do, we are going to have to start narrowing our list down. Thanks so much for any help!
