Have you always wanted to go Grand Canyon hiking with your family but you weren’t able to afford it until now? It costs money to fly out your family to the Grand Canyon, so if you saved up enough money to plan your next vacation, then you need to plan several outdoor activities while you are in Arizona. If you are planning a road trip to travel across the country, then there are several other places that you may want to add to your itinerary.

You Can Go Horseback Riding

If you always wanted to take your family on a long horseback ride in the woods, then now is the time to do it! You will be able to find a rancher that rents out their horses to travelers. They will lead your family on a trail through the woods and fields while riding on horses. The horses are broken in so there is nothing for you to be worried about because the animals know the route since they’ve walked it so many times.

Go Backpacking in Yellowstone

Another popular tourist destination that you can bring your family to is Yellowstone. You will be able to go backpacking with your entire family so you can view the beautiful scenery and wildlife. You can even go camping in Yellowstone, so make sure you pack all your camping equipment in a backpack because you’ll be hiking in to the campgrounds. You need to make sure you bring a camera because you will want to take a lot of pictures of the beautiful flowers and scenic backdrops that will look great in all of your family photos. This is one place you will never want to forget.
