Make 2017 Your Best Year

You finally made it! 2016 has finally gone and that means it’s time to get going on 2017 with a whole new set of New Year’s Resolutions to complete. If you’re looking to put more adventure into your life this year and unwind a little bit more from the busy of life, than we are here to help! Consider adding a few of these activities if you’re adding travel and adventure to your list of “must-dos” this year:

Hike Rim-to-Rim at the Grand Canyon

The Rim-to-Rim Hike at the Grand Canyon is a must if you’re an avid adventurer that finds a vacation is only complete with a great workout and amazing views. Stay with us at the Grand Canyon Lodge North Rim for the night before you set out and head out for your hike to the South Rim. Day hikes aren’t the only way to travel the rim, there are also backpacking trips available that last 3 to 4 days as well as guided hikes. If you’re interested in taking a large group with you for the hike, be sure to visit to learn about permits necessary for the hike. No matter which hike you decide to do, be sure to load your pack with water and sunscreen!

Visit Yellowstone

Traveling to new, undiscovered places is always good for the soul and if you’ve never been to one of the most popular National Parks in the country, then taking a trip to Yellowstone National Park may be perfect for you! As the oldest national park in the country, Yellowstone is full of a variety of wildlife, plants, and amazing sights to see such as the Old Faithful Geyser and the Grand Prismatic Spring. This national park has tours available from our team at Scenic Safaris if you’re looking to get the most out of your trip to Yellowstone. When you're done at Yellowstone, be sure to head just South of Yellowstone to see Grand Teton National Park and enjoy a meal at our Signal Mountain Lodge to complete your visit.

The Ultimate Road Trip

If you’re looking to really take a vacation to remember, then why not go all out at take the Ultimate Road Trip on Highway 89. On this trip you will have a chance to visit all of the same places we listed above and more! The trip starts in Flagstaff, Arizona and takes you up past Lake Powell, the Grand Canyon, Kanab, Utah, Bryce Canyon, and all the way up to Yellowstone National Park.

Sitting in the middle of Lake Superior exists one of the most unique and secluded national parks: Isle Royale. Only accessible via boat or plane, Isle Royale’s seclusion from the world around it, adds to the charm and wonder of the area. If you’re looking to mark scuba diving off of your list of resolutions this year, then Isle Royale is the place to do it with a number of ship wrecks living under the surface that are a thrill to see and explore.

We hope this list of things to do at many of our Forever Resorts locations helps you fulfill your New Year’s Resolutions for the upcoming year of 2017. Find your next adventure with us!
