Arches National Park — 8 nights

A Red Rock Wonderland

Mother Nature kept reaching for red when she painted Arches National Park's 2,000 sandstone arches, resulting in one of the country's more distinctly shaped and colored landscapes.
Visit Sego Canyon Petroglyphs and Cisco Ghosttown for their historical value. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Dewey Bridge and Westwater Canyon. There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Delicate Arch, hike along Double Arch, tour the pleasant surroundings at Fiery Furnace, and admire all the interesting features of Arches National Park Scenic Drive.
