3 Roadside Stops on your Trip to the Grand Canyon

Few things in life can match the experience that comes along with a road trip across America. No matter what your goal may be, there are always plenty of sites to see, things to do, and people to meet along the way. It is one of the situations where the journey is truly just as much a part of the experience as the destination. That’s why no road trip would be complete without a few road side pit stops. Next time you are planning a trip to the Grand Canyon drive, don’t fly! And when you find yourself ready to get out of the car and stretch your legs, try stopping at one of these three unforgettable pit stops.

Sunset Crater Volcano

Located just outside of Flagstaff, Ariz., this young volcano has been drawing attention for decades. Once you set your eyes upon this marvel of the natural world, you’ll understand exactly why. The dramatic geological shifts caused by it’s eruption have forever altered the landscape into an extraordinary, almost surreal testament to the beauty and power of mother nature.

Wupatki National Monument

This historical site, constructed around 500 CE, was once home to numerous Native American tribes. This beautiful prehistoric pueblo is nestled in the heart of northern Arizona, in an area rich with Native American ruins. The vibrant red rocks contrasted against the expansive stretches of blue sky are sure to leave you breathless, and remain in your memory as one of the most stunning sites that you have ever had the pleasure to witness.

Las Vegas

Sin City may be a place that you are tempted to stay for longer than just a short pit stop, but it’s actually a wonderful location to unwind after a long while behind the wheel. With world class restaurants, entertainment, and hotels and casinos, the city has everything you need to shake the stress away after spending so many hours on the road. Plus, many companies offer Grand Canyon tours from Las Vegas! You can finish your trip in style by taking a helicopter tour, and getting a bird’s eye view of the Grand Canyon’s gorgeous natural beauty.
