Our Hotel and Casino Resort in Las Vegas is centrally located for the purpose of our first time guests enjoying the famous Las Vegas strip for the first time. Within a short distance from the hotel, you can experience the famous Bellagio fountains and the volcanic explosions show in front of the Mirage hotel totally free. Hotels like the Caesar’s Palace and the Forum Shops, the Venetian Hotel & Casino with its iconic Canale Grande and Plaza de Marco on the Second Level, and the Bellagio with an incredible foyer of botanical garden display and a Guinness Book of World Records pastry and chocolate factory, just to mention a few, is a must!

Numerous restaurants with exquisite menus are within walking distance and if you enjoy margaritas, Margaritaville is the place to have a drink! Walk down the newest Linq “Alley” to the High Roller and if interested you can even enjoy a Zip Line experience just down the street!

Enjoy!

Day 2: Bryce Canyon National Park
The second day we head out of Las Vegas, Nevada into Utah and the Zion-Mount Carmel Highway where we enjoy a photo opportunity at Checkerboard Mesa! Then, we continue on with a short drive left to Bryce Canyon National Park. Many people feel Bryce Canyon is the most beautiful of the National Parks! Taking one of a great variety of hiking trails winding through unique, multi-hued spires (hoodoos) of red and pink, we make sure you have as many photo opportunities among this grandeur as possible!! After an unbelievable day, we travel on to Kanab, Utah, or “little Hollywood” as it’s called because it is where many, western movies (including “Stagecoach”, “Buffalo Bill”) and TV shows (such as “Gunsmoke”, and “The Lone Ranger”) have been made! Time to relax and enjoy a nice dinner and drinks!!

Hotel: Quality Inn, Kanab UT 1 night
Total drive time: 4.5hrs / 260 miles.
Included: Breakfast and Picnic Lunch

Day 3: Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend.
Our 3rd day starts with a short drive to Page, Arizona, where we will enjoy a most anticipated event, a hike into Antelope Canyon with a guide from the Navajo Tribe! People travel from all over the world for this opportunity because Antelope Canyon’s slots are stunningly beautiful! At Horseshoe Bend, we take a short hike to the edge where we can see the Colorado River below – the powerful force that created this unique land formation! Depending on the time of the year, a cool dip (or at least a toe-dip ) in the rose-colored beaches of Lake Powell or a side trip to the Navajo National Monument before we arrive in beautiful Monument Valley.

Hotel: The View in Monument Valley 1 Night
Total Drive: 3 hrs / 190 miles.
Included: Breakfast and Picnic Lunch

Day 4. Monument Valley and Grand Canyon South Rim National Park
We’ll rise early on the 4th day with a gorgeous view of the Monument Valley directly from our hotel room! Marvel at the red towers of Navajo sandstone rising out of the valley and enjoy fantastic photo opportunities! For decades this very Valley has been used as a backdrop for many Hollywood films, especially in the John Wayne western movies. An optional Jeep tour through the Valley, led by local Navajos, is available. The approximate cost is $70.00 not included in the tour price.

After a full morning of Monument Valley activities, we drive to the Grand Canyon South Rim National Park. We make our first stop at Desert View Tower, an incredible first impression of the Grand Canyon! We will make our way to the Yavapai Geological Museum and a walk along the Canyon Rim to Bright Angel Lodge! From there we can take a hike down the Bright Angel Trail, take a shuttle bus to Hermits Rest, and walk back to Grand Canyon Village, or a combination of it all! Rest assured the view is spectacular no matter where we are and the photo opportunities are abundant.

There is an optional helicopter tour over the Grand Canyon (Approximate cost $290.00, not included in the tour price.)

Hotel: Red Feather Lodge, Tusayan AZ 1 night
Total Drive time: 3.5 hrs / 160 miles
Included: Breakfast and Picnic Lunch

Day 5. Route 66 to Death Valley
Leaving Grand Canyon South Rim on day 5, we stop at historic Williams, Arizona, and perhaps one of the best coffee and pie stops along Route 66!! Then a stop at Seligman which was the model for the animated movie franchise “Cars”, Radiator City!

Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes in Death Valley stands in dramatic contrast to the red desert of Utah and Arizona. In Badwater – Death Valley, you have the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere, 282 ft below sea level, and then, you have spectacular Telescope Peak at 11,000 feet elevation! We move on to experience the Amargosa Valley and Death Valley Junction where we stay at the Longstreet Inn & Casino named after Jack Longstreet, a rugged and colorful turn-of-the-century inhabitant of the area!

Hotel: Longstreet Inn and Casino, Amargosa Valley 1 night
Total Drive: 5:30 hrs / 350 miles
Included: Breakfast and Picnic Lunch

Day 6. Area 51
The unique and mysterious Area 51 Tour is on the tour agenda for Day 6. Full of twists and turns, desert landscape, sand dunes, mysterious lakes, black mailboxes, and of course, UFO conspiracy theories and scary signs that warn of the use of deadly force to keep the curious out!!!! This last leg of the tour is full of incredible views, secrets, and thrilling discoveries! It is…out of this world!

Back to reality and Las Vegas for a farewell drink and a trip to the airport to catch a plane back home.
