Vegas For Families: Valley of Fire

Vegas for families: Valley of Fire 
We ventured off to Valley of Fire this trip so the kids could experience it. Remember to go early if you’re like us and go in the summer!  Valley of Fire is about an hour drive with one gas station stop/casino/store. Stop there if you need gas because you won’t have another chance for gas in the valley. You should also stop there because it’s unique, gifts, bathroom, and it’s interesting. 
All of the adults had been before (a first for the kids), but this is a place you can visit numerous times and it is still amazing! There are so many things to see and different trails.  Best parts: I watched the kids climb around ( no pics of climbs because I’m mom-spotting from below every time). We found many lizards because it is still early and the kids hunted for snakes although we have a variety of feelings about finding a snake! We saw the petroglyphs again which is awesome too and elephant rock of course!  For pictures

2 Days: Sedona Vacation


Sedona Vacation


I love visiting the southwest and usually my focus is in Nevada, but for this trip I wanted to visit Sedona. For over a decade, I have heard family speak of the majestic colors and mountains in Sedona. 

We traveled from Boston to Phoenix first. I do not enjoy flying, but I love to travel. We use JetBlue for many reasons: the tv's on every seat-back, the kind employees, and the reliability. 

Having three kids and working, we find it incredibly important to spend some vacations just you-and-me style. Here we are happy to be able to go on vacation together. Leaving for Sedona! 


We enjoyed one night in Phoenix before traveling to Sedona. Unfortunately, the rain was relentless during our two day stay. 

Driving in the rain


We made the best of the driving and turned up the radio or just talked and laughed together feeling relaxed and having a good time. 





We booked a room at Poco Diablo Resort in Sedona. Poco Diablo has a great location and easy to drive to many restaurants and shops. Too cold to swim while there, we did enjoy the outside jacuzzi located next to the heated pool. 

We went into town and enjoyed great food and some window shopping. My daughter and I love the story of Sacajawea so when I saw this sign I had to take a picture.


After checking out of our hotel in Sedona, we started our road trip to Vegas. It is about a 5 hour drive. Take 89A and plan on making quick stops along the way to take pictures. 


When we left Sedona, we stopped at various places to just take pictures and enjoy the views...how incredibly relaxing.

Despite the weather, we enjoyed our trip and was sad to go. We cannot wait to try again.
