Grand Canyon
Why It’s Amazing: It’s big. Real big. We’re talking 277 miles long, up to 18 miles wide, and one mile deep. While it’s not the world’s deepest or widest canyon, it’s undoubtedly the most colorful. The Grand Canyon also exposes ancient Proterozoic and Paleozoic strata—two billion years of earth’s rust-hued history—a visual experience that is not easily captured on film and can’t be found anywhere else in the world.

Secret Viewing Spot: Head toward tranquil Shoshone Point, an unmarked trail on a dirt road off East Rim Drive between mileposts 244 and 245.

When to Go: March to May, before the RVs arrive.

Individual Basis, or with a Group.

New Orleans is so flat that in the 1930s the Works Progress Administration built Monkey Hill at Audubon Zoo to show the city’s children what a hill looked like.

#Louisiana Great River Road
The Route: 70 miles.

Let the Mississippi River be your guide on this winding route from Baton Rouge through Creole Country to New Orleans. Look out for former sugar plantations and majestic antebellum plantation houses—until the Civil War this area was one of the richest in America. Giant moss-draped oak trees nearly obscure the Creole cottages, surrounded by patches of budding wildflowers.

Where to Stop: Oak Alley Plantation in Vacherie. This Greek Revival mansion was built in 1839 and stands at the end of a long avenue lined with oak trees. In New Orleans, check into the buzzy Saint Hotel, in the former Audubon Building in the French Quarter

Nashville is unquestionably the “Home of Country Music“. There is so much to see and do here, with Country Music being the common thread! Start at the Opryland complex and enjoy a lunch entertainment cruise on the General Jackson paddlewheeler. Then it’s off for an evening at the Grand Ole Opry to enjoy some of Country’s great entertainers. Then how about the Always Patsy Cline Show at the Ryman Auditorium, which is the original home of the Grand Ole Opry. Squeeze in the new Opry Country Classics show and a visit to the Country Music Hall of Fame, and you are all set.
