Hello Roadtrippers, I'm seeking some advice on a quickly approaching trip.
Were a pretty well road trip traveled family of five with kids 10, 14, 16.
Normally we pack up the Town & Country and off we go! This year were trying something new. Were flying to Denver mid-June and renting a 30’ RV for a 10 day round trip adventure to the Grand Canyon and everything in between.
I’ve got a list of places we’d like to see.... but I’m not too sure what is manageable with RV travel and some limitations it may bring.
I don’t want to bite off too much and end up going full blown "Clark Griswold"
We arrive in Denver on a Saturday. By the time we pick up the RV, go shopping and get on the road I imagine it will be around 2pm. The only reservations we’ve made so far are at the Grand Canyon for Tue, Wed, Thurs. with intentions of only staying 2 of those days, depending on what I learn HERE.
Places we’d like to see: (kind of in a clockwise manner)
Pikes Peak - We’d rent a car for the day and drive it. We drove up Mt. Washington last year and the kids loved it. Now they want to tackle Pikes Peak too! No interest in taking the Cog Railway up.
Garden of the Gods
Manitou Cliff Dwellings
Grand Canyon South Rim (reservations Tue, Wed, Thurs?)
Antelope Canyon (pictures have always amazed me)
Black Canyon - Gunnison
I'm hoping not to burn the kids out on hiking or looking at more orange rocks! so if anything above could be skipped to facilitate other options, I'm open to any suggestions.
We've traveled to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons six years ago so I don't think we will be going north of Moab.
We have the "All Kids in a Park” Pass so we're good to go with the NP's.
- Anxious to get some input
