Road Trip 2015 south west US

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are planning a 6-7 week road trip through south western United States during April – May 2015. The holiday will encompass the states of Utah, Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado. The visual splendour of the area is the catalyst that sparked the idea of the trip. We are also interested the local cuisine, the culture, and history. We’re 2 Australians in our early 60’s. While we appreciate that hiking is an essential aspect of many of these attractions, we will limit ourselves to easy walks up to 8 km/ 5 miles.

This is a loose outline of the trip at this stage. Fly into Las Vegas; Grand Canyon 2 nights; Sedona 2 nights; Tucson 4 nights; Flagstaff 1night; Monument Valley 2 nights; Canyon de Chelly 2 nights; Albuquerque 2 nights; Santa Fe 4 nights; Durango 4 nights; Bluff 2 nights; Moab 3 nights; Page 3 nights; Bryce Canyon 2 nights; Zion National Park 2 nights; back to Las Vegas.

We’re interested other people’s opinions in regard to a number of things.
1) The amount of time spent at each place. Have we got it basically right? Please enlighten us.
2) Special recommendations in what to see (or avoid) at each location
3) Information / dates in relation to any fairs, festivals, markets, sporting, music events etc.
4) The dates of our Spring breaks.
Thanks.
