End of Summer, Beginning of Fun
Hey, everyone! Now that Labor Day Weekend has come and gone, summer is unofficially over. Kids are back in school, there aren’t any more long weekends coming up; it’s back to the regular routine. Well, for a lot of us anyway. But if you’re retired, then you know September is one of the best months to travel. September and October are actually the most popular time for seniors to take vacations. So if you’re in your Golden Years, and are looking for some fall fun, then we might have an idea or two for you.
If you have a camper, trailer, or RV, then the you gotta go on a roadtrip. The national parks in Utah all have campsites that accommodate RVs, and there are loads of other nearby sites if those are full. So why not visit a bunch, or heck, even all of the national parks in Southern Utah. We’ve actually done a lot of the legwork for you. Check out our itinerary for an awesome Three Park Roadtrip. Or this blog post about driving the Grand Circle. (That’s all five parks – Bryce, Capitol Reef, Zion, Arches, and Canyonlands, and adding in the Grand Canyon for good measure.) Put that RV to use and see everything Southern Utah has to offer.
Visit Scenic Zion
If you don’t have access to a personal hotel on wheels, don’t sweat it. You can still experience the best of Southern Utah. And for first time visitors to Utah, that usually means Zion National Park. Fly into Saint George (or Las Vegas or Salt Lake, if you don’t mind the extra drive time) and head into the park. Zion is a good option if you don’t feel like doing any serious hiking. A lot of the park can be seen from the shuttle. And there are some easy paths to stroll along if you want to stretch your legs. Plus, Zion Lodge is a great place to stay and hang out. You can check out our list of the Top 5 Things to Do in Zion, and adapt it to your needs.
There’s a lot less people. The weather is cooler. September is one of the best times to travel. But if you’re a senior, then you knew that already. Have fun out there!
