Utah's NP's trip: Starting from Salt Lake City or Vegas?

Jump to last reply

Hello all- I am excitedly! planning an early August trip to Utah National Parks with my 9 yr. old son. I have a couple of logistical questions:

1. I am using frequent flyer miles and the best use of these miles has me arriving and departing from SLC. And I really want to do a loop of the parks vs. retrace my steps. Any downside to starting the trip in SLC?

2. Also, I am thinking of starting off in the Moab area because other travelers have said Arches gets hotter and hotter as the summer wears on...is this true?

3. Lastly, my schedule is pretty flexible but I cannot decide how many nights to spend in each area. I am hoping to go to Moab (to see Arches, Canyonlands, maybe Dead Horse State Park), and Capitol Reef Park, possibly Escalante Monument, and then Bryce and Zion.

I would prefer to spend two nights in a hotel (i.e. not change every day.) Is this route feasible?

Any special tips for travel with a pretty adventurous 9 yr. old, let me know! It is he and I so I will definitely be looking into the Jr. Ranger Programs so he can be with some other kids for a little while!

Thanks in advance!
