Utah/GC Questions

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a trip for early September. I have all of the lodging reservations (plane tickets haven't been bought yet) but am beginning to reconsider the last leg of our trip & wanted some input.

Fly into Vegas.
night 1: zion
night 2: bryce
night 3: bryce
night 4: GC
night 5: GC
night 6: mesa verde
night 7: mesa verde
Fly out of Durango

I am traveling with a 10 year old....very adventurous boy. Neither of us having been out west & its hard to pick what to see & what to skip.

I will be renting a car. The cost to rent the car in Vegas & return in Durango is about $300 more than if I'd return to a larger city. Not to mention, I'm wondering if our time could be better spent in Arizona/GC/Flagstaff/Sedona instead of the 5 hour drive to Mesa Verde.

Thoughts??

Thank you!!!
