From the gorgeous national parks to the thrilling cities, this western U.S. tour through California, Arizona, and Nevada features unique rock formations, scenic drives, deep canyons, and sparkling waterfalls and lakes-not to mention fun in some of the world's most famous cities. Your tour starts in Los Angeles, ends in San Francisco, and overnights along the way in Palm Springs, Scottsdale, Williams, Las Vegas, Tulare, Merced, and San Francisco. You'll visit two of the West's most famous and beautiful national parks, Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona and Yosemite National Park in California. Stroll the Grand Canyon's South Rim and stand in awe as you witness the breathtaking scenery. In Yosemite National Park, have your camera ready for the giant granite domes, cascading waterfalls, lush forests, and more. But that's not all…you'll also witness spectacular scenery on your drives. Between Scottsdale and the Grand Canyon, you'll see Arizona’s Oak Creek Canyon, known as one of America's most beautiful drives and home to brilliantly hued cliffs and rugged spires of sandstone, and you'll stop in Sedona, with the massive red-rock formations that make the area famous. Between Williams and Las Vegas, watch for Joshua trees, which can grow to be more than 40 feet tall. Between Las Vegas and Tulare, you'll witness the vast Mojave Desert. Enjoy sightseeing in Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Perhaps take a ride on San Francisco's historic cable cars or enjoy an optional outing to Alcatraz Prison, the federal penitentiary that once housed Al Capone and other notorious criminals-the choice is yours! Free time in each city-including Las Vegas-gives you time to explore on your own or to take optional excursions. Breathtaking scenery, exciting cities, scenic drives, and more…this western U.S. tour is a perfect holiday for savvy, value-minded travellers.
