Theme routes National parks of the American West

With family, with children

  • Las Vegas (delirious hôcasinos and anthology shows)
  • Route 66, Bodie (ghost town frozen in time)
  • All major national parks (small hikes accessible from 5 years old)
  • Half-Day Easy Rafting Tour on the Colorado
  • Monument Valley and its western atmosphere
  • Swimming and lazing around at Lake Powell (expensive boat rental but unforgettable experience)
  • Watch a rodeo show.

Our advice: plan extended stages to make the most of each place (3 nights = 2 days only including the road).
Et book well in advance to sleep inside national parks ...
