    Default Help planning Road Trip Phoenix to Houston in February

    Just booked airfare from Rochester, NY to Phoenix, AZ in February 2010 and am planning a roadtrip to include AZ, NM and Texas. We fly out of Houston 8 days later. We have two children who love adventure and want to see the best places in these three states. Grand Canyon/Sedona, maybe Santa Fe, maybe a dude ranch in Texas? I have no please send any great places to stop, we will be staying at Mariott properties along the way...Thanks.

    Default With a Little Wandering

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    With a week plus to get from Phoenix to Houston, you'll have quite a bit of time to travel to some of the best sights the Southwest has to offer. I'd suggest you look into first heading north through Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon to Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon area, then head east to Meteor Crater and Petrified Forest National Park. In New Mexico, there's Petroglyph National Monument in Albuquerque, the Palace of the Governors in Santa Fe, and the Taos Pueblo in Taos. If you then head south through eastern New Mexico, you'll pass through Sumter with Billy the Kid's grave, Roswell with its flying saucer subculture, and Carlsbad and its Caverns. Finally heading south and east across Texas brings you to San Antonio and the Alamo and your destination, Houston
