    Default Arizona on a Hundred Miles a Day

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    In response to your query, I started mapping out a route around Arizona that took in most of my favorite places in the state that you haven't been to yet. Surprisingly, it ended up totaling only around 1400 miles, which over two weeks requires the low daily mileage referred to in the title. Anyway, without going into detailed routing, such a loop could/would take you to the following places, listed in clockwise order from Phoenix: Salt River Canyon, Petrified Forest National Park, Canyon de Chelly National Monument, Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site, the Coronado Trail Scenic Byway, Gila Box Riparian National Conservation Area, Fort Bowie National Historic Site, Chiricahua National Monument, Bisbee, Tombstone, San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area, Kartchner Caverns State Park, Pima Air and Space Museum, Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Casa Grande Ruins National Monument, Wickenburg, Prescott, and Agua Fria National Monument.

    And as always, be sure to check at the entramce/visitors' center of any National Park, Monument, Historic Site, etc., for any Junior Ranger programs they have for your children.

    The Great Midwest, Illinois to be precise


    Hard to go wrong cruising down Route 66 at some point.

    Near the western end is the town of Oatman with its burros which I think your children might like.
