Grand Junction, Moab, Salt Lake City, Idaho

What to do in 3 days from Grand Junction, CO to Big Island, ID?

Hi there, we (family including an 8-year old and grandparents) will arrive in Grand Junction, CO on August 7th in the evening. And have a cottage booked in Island Park, ID from August 10th to 13th. 

There are so many things to see and do on the way, but quite little time. Colorado National Monument, Canyonlands, Arches, SLC, Craters of the Moon...

Any recommendations from people who know the area would be really helpful.

We just returned from a 3-day trip to Grand Junction.

Highlights 

Jet Boat Colorado

The only jet boat outfitter in Colorado this outing is FANTASTIC! Your entire family will love it. And very few people get to say they went jet boating on the famous Colorado River.

Bin 707 Foodbar  

Some of the best, hyper local food you'll put in your mouth. 

Sage Creations Organic Farm

Have you ever visited a lavender farm? If not, it's a beautiful experience. Free to visit. 

Colterris Winery

If you love wine, don't miss Colterris Winery. Ask to see the "wine cave." You can see how their wine compares to those in South America. :)

Such a beautiful area. You'll have a wonderful time. Safe travels!

Total take the scenic drives thru the National Parks on your way north. Arches National Park Visitor Center & Park HeadquartersCanyonlands National ParkMesa Verde National Park if it's close, and Capitol Reef National Parkare so worth it. Once you've seen a few  parks though, the red rock gets repetitive. Zions Park is a must see if you have time because it is a bit different than the rest. If you've got the time take a short hike in Little Cottonwood Canyon Road or Big Cottonwood Canyon near Salt Lake City - they're gorgeous and they have some shorter more family oriented hikes. In Idaho check out Lava Hot Springs or the Sawtooth Mountains

If you decide to go to Salt Lake City, Temple Square is really beautiful. There are free tours and events. The North Visitors center is a great place to start. https://www.templesquare.com/ Downtown SLC also has free TRAX trains that are at least every 15 minutes. https://www.rideuta.com/Fares-And-Passes/Free-Fare-Zone
