I am in the beginning stages of planning our family trip from Louisville Kentucky to The West. We will be starting our trip in late July after all the summer baseball has ended. We will be taking our 11 and 13 year old sons, and our 18 year old daughter. I have flown to Colorado and Arizona on 4 day weekend trips in the past, and my husband hiked Colorado and lived in New Mexico for a year. That is all of our " out west" experience. For example, if we went to see the Grand Canyon, I'm not even sure what part we should go to. I don't know where to start on this trip. I keep looking up places online but have no real context to plan.
1. I am open to flying into a city that has really good plane fares and renting a car.
2. We could take up to 10 days.
3. We usually go to the east coast for vacation and would like to experience the amazing beauty we keep seeing in pictures.
Thank you in advance for your advice!
