Monument Valley with a 3.5 year old!  (3 Answers)

As I was mentioning in my previous question, we're staying at The View hotel when we visit the park in mid-May. What can we do at Monument Valley with a 3.5 year old if we don't do the 2 hour tour by car since our kid will have been in the car for so long. Are there any 'easy' walks in the park that she could participate in? Some exploring by foot so she can run around and exert some energy? Or are the only activities those that involve sitting and enjoying the view, vigorous hikes or drives?

Thanks!
Cailey

View Hotel tips?  (7 Answers)

Any tips on what to ask for when booking a room at the hotel? Or any 'lessons learned' from folks who have stayed there? Things you'd ask for if you were staying there again? They promote Valley View and Star View rooms? Thoughts? Thanks!

Monument valley , moab, route 66  (3 Answers)

Hi, in september , we are embarking on route 66, driving in opposite direction, LA to Chicago. We aim to make a few detours, one being monument valley and arches park in Moab. Can anyone help with my dilemma of best route round, with best roads, shortest driving time and trying not to go back on ourselves too much? Time is not an issue and if we have to go up through Vegas as an alternative that would be ok. We would be stopping overnight in Moab. Thanks for your suggestions.

Any more tips are most welcome.

hours of operation  (2 Answers)

Hello,

I'm planning to visit Monument Valley as a part of my driving trip this April (Las Vegas-Zion-Bryce-Page-Monument Valley-Page-Las Vegas).I have two questions:

How early and late is the scenic drive open? The official website of the Valley says that Visitor's center is open 7am to 7pm, and the Scenic drive is open from 9am to 4:30pm. Would I be able to access the Scenic drive from 4:30pm to 7pm? If I pay my entrance fee before 4:30pm, would I be able to stay in the Valley til 7pm?

My second question is how is the road from Page to Monument Valley. Would it be ok to drive it after dark?(I'm ok driving at night, but I would rather not do it on the mountainous road. I'm thinking about going to Page after the Valley "closes", as it seems there is really not much to do in the area in the evening.

Thank you

Monument Valley or Mystery Valley?  (6 Answers)

A question for the avid scenic photographers! My family has made reservations at the View Hotel in Monument Valley for next week. I have been looking at all the guided tours and now need to make a choice, however I need a little help. Since we'll be arriving around 10am and staying only one night, we'll have to select an afternoon 1/2 day jeep tour. WHICH IS BETTER? The regular Monument Valley 1/2 day tour or the Mystery Valley 1/2 day tour? They give you a choice for around80 but as a photographer interested in rock formations and sand dunes etc not ruins or weaving etc, which valley should I select? I don't need to spend a lot of time 'setting up' for my photos, just a quick minute to adjust for settings etc (no tripod). Thanks!

Monument Valley Guided Tours  (3 Answers)

I've been looking over the MV website and see that there are quite a few tour companies offering guided tours (1/2 day is what we want) through the valley. We prefer a vehicle tour over the horseback and hiking tours. Can anyone recommend one company over the other? We'll be driving in from the Grand Canyon and arriving around noon (in april), and we'll be staying at the new View Hotel. We'd like to take either a later afternoon tour or a early morning tour, and want to include the interesting sites such as the Ear of the Wind (?) and other arches etc. We're looking for the "Best Value" tours for 2 adults 1 18yr old?

Driving to Monument Valley  (6 Answers)

We will be driving from Grand Canyon to Mesa Verde one day in mid June. We were thinking of stopping at Monument Valley. How long does it take to drive from Highway 160 (south of Kayenta)to the visitor's center at Monument Valley? Can you see much from there? We probably won't have time to take the jeep tour. I don't know if our rental van would do well on the dirt roads or not? To get to Mesa Verde from Monument Valley, we would need to go back south to Kayenta and go east on 160 correct?

Travel time and distance to Monument Valley?  (3 Answers)

Hi, me and my friend will do a roadtrip from 20 september - 5 october. Our plan is to drive from Los Angeles - Grand Canyon (South Rim) - Bryce Canyon - Zion - Las Vegas - Death Valley - Seqouia/Kings Canyon - Yosemite (?) - San Francisco - LA. We would really like to visit Monument Valley, but have doubts if it is feasible.

Can anyone tell me wat the travel time + distance is from Grand Canyon (South Rim-Tusayan) to Monument Valley? And from Monument Valley to Bryce Canyon? Would it be best to plan an overnight stop in Page? And...if I have to choose between Monument Valley or Antelope Canyon/Lake Tahoe, which one is more interesting? Thanks for your help!
