Enjoy the Pacific Ocean while hanging out at Venice Beach and ride the Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica Pier. In San Diego, hang ten as you learn to surf at one of the city’s most famous beaches and kayak through secret caves in La Jolla while looking out for sea lions. If the San Diego Zoo or Disneyland (optional) has been on your bucket list, check them off here!
On our way to the Grand Canyon State of Arizona, we’ll make a pitstop in Nevada in the vibrant city of Las Vegas. Ride the High Roller Ferris wheel and enjoy a delicious feast at an interactive dinner show! There’s no downtown in America quite like the Las Vegas Strip! The flashing lights and fountains complement the high energy of Vegas.
There’s no better way to end this road trip than through some of the most famous places in America than at one of the seven natural wonders of the world: the Grand Canyon. See it for yourself and try to envision how the Colorado River created such a masterpiece over hundreds of thousands of years. From the mighty Grand Canyon we’ll travel to Page, Arizona to see the hidden natural gems of Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend! Swim in bright blue Lake Powell and finish your Southwest adventure with a day trip through stunning Sedona.
