My boyfriend and I are planning a trip to Keystone in Colorado for a snowboarding trip beginning at the start of February 2019. We are driving from Los Angeles to Keystone and making the following stops:
Las Vegas - 2 nights
Grand Canyon South Rim - no overnight stop just a day trip on the way through
Page - 2 nights
Moab - 1 night
We’re quite flexible with timings so the nightly stays aren’t absolute and are willing to change.
We’re both from NZ and used to driving long distances so understand some days will be long drives. We will be stopping to see the Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon, Horsehoe Bend then some other places in Utah and Colorado. Are there any other places along this route that are off the beaten track a bit and would be worthwhile seeing. I’m open to any suggestions but my boyfriend and I are into outdoors activities like hiking, (although it will be winter) sightseeing, horse riding. We also like old ‘ghost towns’, museums, anything to do with history, learning about the local culture and we love food! Also if anyone has any previous knowledge of what the roads are like in February that would be appreciated. We will have a rental car but it will probably be just a corolla sedan or similar. Will the main highways be clear if snow and ice?
