  • Look at

    There are all sorts of different things to see and do, a lot of them are offbeat. It looks like you are doing the old Rte. 66 type thing. I would definitely stay the night in a Wigwam at the Wigwam Hotel in Holbrook, AZ. DH and I actually planned a road trip around the place a couple of years back.

    If you like pretty, national park type stuff :

  • Check out the national parks in those states. Specifically the Grand Canyon.

  • Hope you're travelling Rt 66, coolest road in the states! PLENTY to see and do along the way! Enjoy and travel safe!

  • Definitely take Route 66 if you can. If you have a lot of time to sight-see, the Grand Canyon is a good option. In my opinion though, if you've seen one canyon, you've seen 'em all.
