Where to Visit on Your Southwest Road Trip

Where to Visit on Your Southwest Road TripIf you are about to embark on a quintessential American road trip, then you are going to want to map your route and create your itinerary in advance. While the endless system of highways will get you from point A to point B, it's important to select routes and destinations that will highlight iconic sights and interesting activities along the way. 

Here are a few ideas to consider for a Southwest road trip:

Take a Trail Ride in Texas

When traveling through the great state of Texas by car, the days can quickly become long and tedious. To help break up your drive, schedule a stop at a local ranch in order to enjoy a horseback trail ride. Riders who are at least 8 years old can enjoy trail rides at Southfork Ranch seven days per week.

Learn More About the Western Film Industry in Utah

Hollywood may be located in Los Angeles, but Little Hollywood can be found in Kanab, Utah. Kanab is a small town with a frontier vibe that has been the shooting location for hundreds of western films. You can learn more about this unique history at the Little Hollywood Movie Museum in Kanab. Extend your stay by booking a room at Parry Lodge.

Stop for a Selfie at Mt. Rushmore

No Southwest road trip is truly complete without a photo opportunity at Mt. Rushmore in South Dakota. After you have snapped your selfie, you will want to head to the Badlands National Park to explore the hiking trails. Stay the night at Badlands Inn. which is located just outside the park entrance.
