The stunning southwest never fails to offer a jaw-dropping vista.These three National Parks are among our country's most dramatic and gorgeous.

Day 1

Fly into Las Vegas, NV, and then journey to Springdale, UT, to begin your adventures


Day 2

ZION NATIONAL PARK: Follow the paths ancient native people and pioneers walked as you explore Zion, Utah's first National Park, with a tram ride. See how a hairline crack in the rock erodes in rapidly flowing water to form what are called narrow slot canyons, a photographer's dream! With plenty of trails and an excellent visitor's center, you will relish the on-your-own time here.


Day 3

GRAND CANYON NORTH RIM: Start your Grand Canyon adventure with a three-hour guided tour, followed by dinner at the lodge and a stay in one of the Western cabins. At over 8,000 feet in elevation, the North Rim offers outstanding views of the Grand Canyon.

Day 4

BRYCE CANYON NATIONAL PARK: Sitting between 8-9,000 feet of elevation, Bryce Canyon is a must-see, with the largest collection of hoo-doos in the world. These red, orange and white "spikey" rock formations provide spectacular views.
BRIAN HEAD RESORT: Spend the evening at this resort with the highest base elevation in Utah and see why in the winter, it's a much-in-demand skiing hotspot. In September, however, she just offers tantalizing mountain views and allows you to unwind. Soak it all in and enjoy the evening.

Day 5

HOOVER DAM: Learn about the construction of this technological marvel while floating on a pontoon raft at the base of the dam-the best possible view of the dam there is!
LAS VEGAS, NV: The rest of the afternoon and evening will be yours to spend in Las Vegas as you choose. Catch a show, place a bet at a casino or just walk up and down the famous Las Vegas strip. The night is yours!
