Now that summer is here, it is finally the season to take your family on a road trip. All you have to do is rent an RV, from somewhere like Fretz RV, and hit the open road!  That way you can spend even more quality time as you travel from place to place. The next step is deciding where to go. For those who are not from the Southwestern part of the United States, it is highly recommended to concentrate your trip in this region of the United States due to the plethora of sensational national parks and unique cities at your disposal. Here are 3 stops that you can’t miss on your next road trip:

Sedona, Arizona

Sedona, Arizona is a place that is often missed by tourists because it is nestled in the hills of the desert on the way to Flagstaff and The Grand Canyon. With that being said, Sedona offers the family a plethora of sensational activities such as: views of the gorgeous red rocks that are rumored to have healing powers from the Native Americans, helicopter tours, and horseback riding. If you are looking for an oasis in the desert, Sedona is a wonderful place to spend time with your family and there are many RV parks there for you to camp out with an uninterrupted view of the stars.

The Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon is surely one of nature’s marvels and the good news is that it is only four hours from Sedona, Arizona. At The Grand Canyon, it is best to take a helicopter tour down into the canyon and then go for a boat ride to see the complexities of the rock formations. For some family amusement, opt for the donkey ride back up the canyon. This will give your family members another vantage point that will make for some gorgeous photographs.

Santa Fe, New Mexico

Santa Fe, New Mexico is a Spanish gem that has stayed to its heritage for centuries. In Santa Fe, New Mexico, you can really get a taste of their beautiful culture. You may even be able to find delicious authentic food to eat! Touring around the city allows for a glimpse into America’s colonial past, while providing an educational tour for your children.
