To summarise my Utah/Arizona road trip I’ve mapped the whole itinerary using Google Maps. I’d recommend clicking on the link below the map so you can view it in full.

If I could leave you with one tip it would be this – go in March. I say this for three very good reasons:
1. March is much less crowded than the summer (you’ll find places like the Canyonlands practically to yourself)
2. Because of this, accommodation is really cheap (although for the ultimate cheap holiday then head for the campsites)
3. The temperature is perfect. You can head down the Grand Canyon without worrying about having to beat the unbearable afternoon heat, while places like Bryce Canyon are even more prettier when they’re covered in a blanket of snow.

Also, be sure to go for the $80 annual national park pass rather than paying individual entry fees. If you head to as many parks as I did, it will save you money.

And I my tip for car hire: Avis has loads of offices in Vegas so check around for the best price and car availability. It is also much cheaper doing a loop like I did from/to Vegas rather than a one-way to somewhere like Phoenix. The latter option is likely to see the addition of a one-way fee and you’ll have a more limited choice of car.

If you are planning on heading through Utah and Arizona then have a great trip. You’ll be experiencing some of the world’s most epic and stunning landscapes.
