Do you know what love is? Would you like me to show you what it looks like? This is it! Love! Arizona is so amazing, I can’t get over it!
1. Antelope Canyon – Page, Arizona
When it rains in the desert, the canyons flood with water and it creates the most interesting fluid designs on the rocks, that really play tricks on your eyes. This particular view point from Lower Antelope Canyon is called Rocky Mountains, as you can see a very distinct mountain range.
2. Salt River Wild Horses, Tonto National Park
Wild horses roam freely throughout Tonto National Park, grazing along the Salt River. Tubing tours and fisherman, have an awesome advantage to seeing the horses, as spotting the herd may prove to be a bit difficult from land.
3. Sedona, Arizona
It’s almost like Sedona magically appears, out of no where. Driving in the middle of the desert, the roads are winding and steep, until coming over a hill and poof the red mountains are everywhere!
Vaster than your mind could ever imagine. With deer and wildlife wandering as though there isn’t a human in sight.
5. Horseshoe Bend – Page, Arizona
A short walk from the highway, will bring you to a giant cliff over the Colorado River. Here, the river takes a horseshoe shaped turn and leaves onlookers completely mesmerized!
6. Montezuma Castle National Monument – Camp Verde, Arizona
The remnants of ancient cliff dwellings tucked away on a riverside, are very well preserved, located just outside of Camp Verde. The history of this area is interesting to say the least and it’s amazing to see the buildings are still intact.
7. Lake Powell – Utah/Arizona Border
A couple minutes from both Lower Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend is a magical sky blue lake, straddling the Utah/Arizona borderUtah/Arizona border. With camp sites on the beach, and the surrounding dune-like hill formations, Lake Powell is perfect for swimming, boating or visiting the Glen Canyon Dam.
8. Wupatki National Monument – Flagstaff, Arizona
Pueblo’s and Sunset Crater set on the edge of the Painted Desert just before entering the ponderosa highlands. The ruins share a glimpse into the lives of the Native Americans who settled here thousands of years ago.

L.A. is huge, deciding on an itinerary can be a bit overwhelming. There is literally a million things to do and see. The area is also so spread out, it can cost a fortune when it comes to transportation.
So here is my guide for anyone planning a short visit to LA or is working from a smaller budget.
Let me start by saying, I am in love with New Orleans! So, of course I wanted to take my son to experience the spirit of this soulful city. Now, I know this might come as a surprise to some, but there is equally as much for children to do, as there is adult fun, in the Big Easy.
