There are destinations classified as essential, destinations that are part of a traveling wardrobe and that cannot be missing on your list of trips to do. One of them is the American West, an icon of our global civilization that we should all visit in some time in our life.
The common thread of this adventure is the Wild West, formerly known as “Far West”. This tour of the American West is a city-country-city trip, adapted to family groups. It is intended as a long itinerary, although, as always, it can be shortened to size.
We will start by getting to know San Francisco, a guaranteed success for children and adults. It is a city where anything can happen and where you can see everything, but in the end the conclusion is clear and unequivocal: either you like it, or you like it. If you want to know more about this city and its surroundings, you can ask us for more information.
We will drive to the southern area of the Yosemite Valley, where we will have the opportunity to contemplate its national park and El Gran Capitán, an imposing rocky mountain resulting from glacial action. In a nearby area, known as Mariposa Grove, we can make an essential stop on our route to see the impressive giant sequoias.
We will continue this adventure through the desert valley of Death Valley to reach Las Vegas at sunset. From this point, we will go to Bryce Canyon, but not before taking the opportunity to make a short detour to Zion National Park. We will try to get to Bryce Canyon National Park before sunset to enjoy the light show that makes the landscape seem magical.
We will depart for the town of Page where Glen Dam and Lake Powel await us and the amazing Antelope Canyon wilderness, located within the Navajo Nation Indian Reservation, which many consider one of the most photogenic enclaves in the world. We cannot finish our journey without seeing two mythical places such as Monument Valley, an inhospitable corner of beauty, and Grand Canyon, in the South Rim part.
With a few more hours by car we will have arrived in Los Angeles, the cradle of the film industry per excellence. In addition to visiting Hollywood and feeling like a star walking the Walk of Fame, you will have the opportunity to contemplate its television beach areas, where we will end this exciting road trip along the west coast of the United States.
