Utah Itinerary Early October 2013 - Help Wanted!

Jump to last reply

We (my husband, another couple and I) had planned a wonderful two-week trip to visit the beautiful parks in Utah. Last December I confirmed two nights each in the lodges at Zion and Bryce. Now, our overall trip dates have had to be changed, but I can't change the nights we have reserved at the lodges so have had to create an itinerary that is somewhat awkward. But, as my friend from New York says, it is what it is, so we'll deal with it. Here's what we have now:

Fly to Las Vegas - overnight
Drive to Torrey for Capitol Reef - overnight
Drive to Moab for Canyonlands and Arches - 3 overnights
Drive to ??? - overnight
Drive to Zion - 2 overnights
Driveto Bryce - 2 overnights
Drive to Las Vegas - overnight
Fly Home

When we leave Moab, we need to spend a night somewhere between there and Zion. Coming across I-70 to I-15 then south on I-15, nothing jumps out at me as an interesting place to visit and overnight. Any suggestions?

Also looking for a Las Vegas hotel near the airport with a shuttle since we arrive late and depart early. So far I've looked at the BW McCarran Inn. Anyone stayed there? The reviews are sort of mixed, but we mostly just need clean and convenient to the airport.

I'll have more questions about day to day activities, but for now just trying to get all the lodging nailed down.
