3 Summer Adventures for the Whole Family

3 Summer Adventures for the Whole Family


A New Adventure

Summer vacation is on its way and have you started planning your next family adventure? There are so many unique places across the United States and here is a list of a few in the Northern Arizona region you need to add to your family vacation list.

Horseshoe Bend

Traveling as a family can be a challenge, especially when it comes to finding activities that everyone can participate in. Horseshoe Bend is a place that is easy for people of all ages to visit and experience. As one of the most photographed places in the United States, it has a beauty all its own. This is a perfect sunset destination spot for romantic getaways and family adventures.

Positioned right between spots like Zion, Bryce and the Grand Canyon National Parks, you can easily add it as a stop along your family road trip. It’s only a few miles from the highway making it convenient to access. You and your family can swing by for a quick picture, or if you’d like a more personal experience you can schedule tours with one of the local tour companies.

Lake Powell

Just up the road from Horseshoe Bend is another remarkable geographic feature named Lake Powell. One visit will help you see how it truly is an oasis in the middle of the desert. Lake Powell is full of stunning rock features and scenery to keep you entertained for days. It draws in thousands of visitors every year and due to its massive size, can still feel very spacious.

Held up by the historic Glen Canyon Dam, it provides water sports fun, cliff jumping and so much more. Sometimes visiting a desert can feel a little dry (no pun intended) and Lake Powell can be a real treat, especially in those hot summer months.

Antelope Canyon

One of the best-kept secrets in the area is the Antelope Canyon system. If you are looking for something truly unique to do with your family this year, then look no further. This network of canyons is great for beginners and anyone just looking to experience the magic of slot canyons. Most of the time, canyoneering can involve a difficult approach, dangerous heights, and rope for rappeling but not here. Antelope Canyon is also located just a few miles from Horseshoe Bend and Lake Powell making it another easy stop. Forget all the expensive equipment, rentals, and planning your own canyoneering trip, just enjoy the experience of modest hiking with family members of all ages.

Ready to Make Some Memories?

You and your family will have an unforgettable experience at any of these locations. There’s endless excitement around every sandstone curve. No matter if you’re a beginner or an experienced hiker, these landmarks will have you in awe every time you visit. Start planning your next family vacation today and get ready to make memories that will last a lifetime.
