AGrand Canyon National Park: What is the best way to spend two days?

I'm assuming you're heading to the South Rim… is that correct? Look for accommodations in Tusayan – less expensive and more availability than inside the park. Does "we are light hikers" mean you would like to hike but nothing too strenuous, or... See More

ALas Vegas to Phoenix: Road Trip from Vegas to the National parks in Arizona and Utah

Also, since you asked for suggestions for a better plan here's mine: Start your trip the night before you planned – drive the 3 hours to Zion and spend the night. Wake up early… like at or before sunrise… and do as much as you can in Zion for... See More

ALas Vegas to Phoenix: Road Trip from Vegas to the National parks in Arizona and Utah

If all you want is to snap a selfie for Instagram and to claim the bragging rights for having been there, then sure, it's doable. But it's hardly enough time to see much of anything or to appreciate where you've been. Leaving Vegas at 9 will get you to Zion around... See More

ASedona: What to do in Sedona

Restaurants: The Hudson​, Pump House Station Urban Eatery and Market​. Sadly it appears that Paleo Brio is closed – that was the best place I ate on my visit there last year. Art galleries and fine dining: Tlaquepaque... See More

AYellowstone National Park: Stop off driving between Yellowston and Yosemite

Winnemucca​ is 8-1/2 hours from Yellowstone National Park​, just past the halfway point from Yellowstone to Yosemite Valley​.  See More

ABlue Ridge Parkway: Where do we stay overnight

Virginia (northeast of Roanoke) Peaks of Otter Lodge​ North Carolina (southwest of Asheville) Pisgah Inn See More

AUnited States: I need help planning a route Denver to Yellowstone

I would suggest spending a few more nights in the Black Hills​ if possible. No reason to travel all that way just to lay your head on a pillow.    Be sure to also devote a few days to the Grand Teton National Park​ and Jackson... See More

AMiami: What's the cheapest way to move between Miami and Orlando?

If you're looking to save money, take MegaBus ​. It's totally safe, there's free WiFi and power outlets onboard. Downside is it will take longer to get there (probably due to multiple stops and not staying on the interstate or turnpike). Once you arrive, you... See More
