    If your going to the Grand Canyon you should go with National Park Tourz out of Kanab Utah. They do an all inclusive 4 day 4 night trip to Grand Canyon, Zion National Parks, Lake Powell/Glen Canyon National Recreational Areaand Bryce Canyon National Park for under 2k. That is 4 awesome National Parks and Recreational Areas.

    Began my year at the Grand Canyon…it was stunning. Petra is on my list, and a South African safari. Also with these Chicago winters, I think I could relocate to Panama permanently, it was one of my favorite trips last year…it has everything! Nat Geo travelers should enter Amble Resort’s contest to win a plane ticket anywhere in the world and check off some of these bucket list destinations :)
