So I am trying to plan a 10ish day road trip in the Southwestern United States. I live in VT and my 15 year old daughter and I will be flying out together. This will be our second trip out. The last time, we went from Las Vegas to Area 51 (Rachel NV) to the Hollywood CA area, and back to Vegas. We drove through the Mojave desert, and visited Red Rocks Canyon along the way She likes the bright lights/big city. I like the natural beauty. We try to do both. We do need to go back to LA, but beyond that, I am open to suggestions. I do not hike. We prefer to view from the car, and get out and explore just a little bit. I have been researching Yosemite, and Sequoia. Death Valley sounds interesting but will most likely skip it because it will be a mid summer trip and I am sure quite hot. I also love the red rocks, and would love to see places like Bryce Canyon or areas similar. Valley of Fire is close to Vegas if we go back there. I hear it is awesome, but i feel like other places may be far better. One final point I would add is, although I am not totally opposed to a famous park loaded with tourists, I would love to find the hidden gem, where we can feel a bit more at one with the land around us, much as we did in the remote areas of Nevada. Any and all suggestions are welcome and appreciated!!!
