Are you looking to travel out west with your kids, neurodiverse or not? We traveled for 8 days on a truly EPIC family vacation in the beginning of October to Zion National Park, Antelope Canyon, and Grand Canyon National Park!
After months of pre-planning, I’m truly proud of each aspect of our trip and I am super glad to make your planning easier. I have highlighted each part of our trip below, plus itinerary and tips/hints to help traveling with a child with sensory needs where needed. Whether or not you have a neurodiverse kiddo, our trip itinerary will be great for everyone! At the time of travel, our kids were 13, 12 and 8.
*GEAR round-up Post HERE, including sensory items we ALWAYS travel with.
Here is our general itinerary with detailed links to each part of our trip!
Day 1: Fly to Las Vegas, Nevada and drive to Springdale, Utah (about 2 ½ hours not including time change) located right outside of Zion National Park
Day 3: Morning hike in Zion National Park, Drive the Zion Park Blvd to Mount Carmel Scenic highway to Page, Arizona
Day 7: Drive on Route 66 en route to Las Vegas, Visit the Seven Magic Mountains outdoor art exhibit, and the RiSE Festival (this happens once a year and I HIGHLY recommend planning your trip around it!)
