More beautiful scenery awaits you on the drive between Scottsdale and the Grand Canyon. Witness stunning Oak Creek Canyon, one of the most scenic drives in the U.S., and stop in Sedona, a thriving center of New Age set in massive red-rock formations.

On this western U.S. tour, spend time in the vibrant cities of Los Angeles (including two extra nights), San Francisco, and Las Vegas with plenty of time on your own to explore. Perhaps take a ride on San Francisco’s historic cable cars, enjoy an optional outing to see a Las Vegas show, and stroll down Los Angeles’ Olvera Street—the choice is yours! In San Francisco, you’ll visit captivating Alcatraz Prison, where you can see where famous criminals once lived. Other tour highlights are time in Carmel, a quaint and picturesque town; Monterey, where you’ll visit Fisherman’s Wharf and Cannery Row, the famous street that runs parallel to Monterey Bay’s coastline; Solvang, where Denmark has been recreated with scenic buildings and windmills; and Santa Barbara, where sightseeing includes a photo stop at the historic mission.

This evening, plenty of suggestions for dining and shopping will be available.

Day 3:
LOS ANGELES–PALM SPRINGS. Journey to the desert oasis of Palm Springs, just 120 miles east of Los Angeles. Ever since Hollywood stars first came here in the 1930s, laying claim to ranch-style estates and holing up in elite hotels, the clean, dry air and sunshine have made Palm Springs irresistible.
