Visiting 'cowboy country' from the UK

Jump to last reply

Hi all, I'm new to this forum, live in the UK and have only been to America once to visit my son in Chicago.
I would like to do this again together with my husband but because we are Country and Western fans we would like to combine the Chicago visit with a self-drive tour of "cowboy country". My question is: which would be the best airport to fly to from UK to rent a car and start driving direction Chicago (not all the way!), taking in, if possible, Grand Canyon, Monument Valley and Yellowstone, and from which airport to then fly to Chicago. I would be very grateful for some advice as I've spent days on the internet and can't really find what I'm looking for. Thanks!
