Bucket List Road Trip
Recently I took a family trip to Arizona. We had a chance to visit some gorgeous places! Traveling is one of my huge passions in life. There is nothing like seeing all the different types of beauty throughout our country! I recently wrote about how to travel on a budget, which you can find HERE!
We headed to Williams, AZ which is right on Route 66. Such a cute small town!
From there we drove up to the Grand Canyon which was absolutely unbelievable! If you have never been there, be sure to add this place to your bucket list because you need to see this place with your own eyes! There is a reason why it is one of the Seven Wonders.
If I wasn’t pregnant I would be planning to go when the temperature isn’t over 100 degrees so I can do one of these amazing hikes! I have heard that the river rafting trip and the helicopter rides are both amazing. We spent some time walking along the edge of the canyon and just took in the view.
From there we left and went to Flag Staff, AZ to where our hotel was located. We got unpacked and relaxed before going to dinner. We had a delicious dinner at a restaurant called Salsa Brava, which I would HIGHLY recommend!! You can find their website here
The next day we woke up early and headed on highway 82A to Sedona, AZ! That was an unbelievable drive… The colors of the rocks and the river running next to the super curvy road! We made a stop at Slide Rock State Park. This is an unbelievable park where the rocks are the slides. This place was packed so if you get the chance to go be sure to bring your swim suit and come early! Also, this park used to be an old apple orchard back in 1932 and had tons of apple trees. I highly recommend this State Park!
We headed into Sedona and the rocks were so incredible! The town was so cute with tons of stores and restaurants. There was so much to see as far as the town and then all of the different rocks. Another great Bucket List place crossed off the list!
When I go back I will do the Pink Jeep Rides because I heard they are great. It was about 115 degrees when we were there so we passed and ended up doing our own tour where there was AC and I could stop to use the restroom anytime.
We headed back to Flag Staff for the night and got up the next day and headed off! The trip was amazing and I am already dreaming about where my next trip will be!
