Monument Valley is a must see place if you visit Arizona. For a cultural experience, your family may choose to learn about the Navajo culture. There is also a stunning atmosphere at Lake Powell where you can enjoy house boating together as a family on this marvelous lake which is, in reality, a reservoir within canyon walls. Then, of course, there is the Grand Canyon. Many families enjoy the natural Arizona wonders each year. There’s more wildlife to be seen in Arizona than most realize, but it’s easily frightened and then stays out of sight. Take along your favorite binocular to bring the distant animals into view before you get close enough to make them nervous! (Perhaps, rather than having the kids debate whose turn it is with the binoculars, a reasonably priced compact binocular around an 8X30 can be provided for each of them.)
Yellowstone National Park
The park is situated on many hot springs and includes Old Faithful among other geysers, so that already makes it a site worth seeing. This is a place where families can learn, while also being entertained. Yellowstone Park has a variety of geothermal features, and it is also a place where wildlife can be viewed. This may be a good opportunity to use either compact- or medium-sized binoculars for close-up observation of the animals in their natural habitat as well as bringing the distant views into focus. If you do choose to see this Wyoming park, make it a point to bring back pictures of the place’s rugged beauty that you’ll be able to share with those future grandkids!
