6 Days to Drive from Denver to Las Vegas?
April 7, 2009 9:23 AM Subscribe
We live in the East and have never visited the mountain states or the southwest.
Our plan is to fly to Denver in mid-September and then drive to Las Vegas via southern Utah, where we hope to see some of the major sights like Bryce Canyon, Zion NP and Monument Valley.

We're going to have six or seven days for that part of our trip, plus another four days to spend in Las Vegas and the surrounding area before we fly home.
Does this sound like a reasonable plan? And, given the amount of time we have, what are the most important things that we should see and do?
We're middle-aged, we usually like to avoid crowds and tourist traps, and we're probably not going to want to hike for more than three or four hours at a time.
