We have 9 days to travel the first week in June (he enjoys last minute planning, it’s made me pretty anxious!). Our budget is tending towards frugal with a reasonable splurge here and there.
I’m a third generation New Yorker with minimal (but quickly expanding!) travel experience, whose still learning to appreciate nature. While I like hiking, yoga, and heat, I’m not into extreme or advanced physical anything, don’t gamble, and suck at water sports. I’m excited about doing things outside of my comfort zone though.
I’d love some general or specific input about our destination choices! He really wants to see the Zion Arches, or even stop into Arizona to see Antelope Canyon (which sounds a little ambitious to me).
Is it possible to combine these destinations effectively in 9 days?
How about throwing Arizona into the mix?
Are there scenic routes you would recommend between any of the stops?
Or fun roadside attractions?
We’re especially into offbeat, odd, or bizarre attractions.
Really, suggest anything from sights to see to travel pointers to accommodation suggestions. I’d appreciate any feedback, thanks 😊
