ITINERARY

Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas
From glitz and glitter to lavish dining, the desert playground of Las Vegas extends a warm welcome.

There’s no better place to admire the Southwest’s multi-color landscape than the towering cream, pink and red cliffs of Zion National Park. Drive through the park hugged by red cliffs and stop for lunch at Zion Lodge. Be sure to keep your camera at-the-ready for the enchanting landscapes of Bryce Canyon. Feel dwarfed by the otherworldly rusty red limestone hoodoo spires that rise surreally from the desert floor to Utah’s skies. This evening, perhaps join Ebenezer’s Barn & Grill and The Bryce Canyon Wranglers for an unforgettable evening of live country music and a delicious BBQ dinner.
