Southern Utah - Lodging


Lodging is one of the biggest expenses you will encounter when planning a vacation. As I planned our Southern Utah vacation I selected the places we wanted to visit and then began the search for lodging. We planned to visit Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park.  If there was time, we would also try to make it to Grand Staircase and Cedar Breaks National Monument. Where would we stay?

Zion National Park
During June of 2018 we spent 4 days in southern Utah. In that time we would visit two national parks and one national monument. Utah has five national parks and seven national monuments.  You will never be bored when visiting Utah!

One of the most expensive parts of a vacation is lodging. When you visit Disneyland you have many choices from which to choose. You can stay in a Disneyland hotel or you can choose from any number of chain and locally owned hotels in the area.

Disneyland Transportation


So you have decided to take a vacation to Disneyland.  Now the question is, how will you get there?  Living in Texas, driving to Disneyland was not a feasible option for us. It just takes too much time to drive nearly 3,000 miles round trip. 

A Day in Las Vegas!


I know what you are thinking... Las Vegas on a FAMILY vacation! REALLY? I have to admit, the thought of spending much time in Las Vegas with my 14 year old son does give me caution.
