I'm after some advice and recommendations please! My husband and I fly into Denver next April and we have 9 nights road tripping on the way to San Diego, where we'll stay for a few days to relax.
I'm thinking we will use this route: Denver 1 night, Vail 1 night (in the Rockies), Moab 3 nights (Arches, Colorado river cruise, day trip to Monument Valley), Bryce NP 1 night, Zion NP 2 nights, Lake Havasu City 1 night.
Is this route manageable in the time and do we have about the right about of time at each stop? Not sure if 3 nights in Moab is too much. We've been to the Grand Canyon and Vegas on another trip so happy to leave them off the itinerary this time. Ideally we don't want to spend more than 5 hours on the road each day and want to have time to enjoy the journey and take in all the scenic highlights. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
