I did some research on that area a year or two back when I first heard about Horseshoe Bend, although I haven't managed to make it there yet! The only airport that is remotely close is in Page, AZ. Great Lakes Aviation has a number of flights there, both under their own name as well as under United codeshares. Frontier also have a small number of flights ...

I am guessing you are searching for flights from Tucson (TUS) to Denver (DEN), but you can get much cheaper flights from Phoenix (PHX). I'm seeing round-trip fares PHX-DEN-PHX of $112 (Spirit Airlines, many extra fees likely), $144 (Southwest, includes bags) and $185 (US Airways, bags extra). The difference would probably cover a shuttle from Tucson to PHX ...

On Greyhound I can find one way tickets from Tucson to Denver for 99$. It takes less than 24 hours and has a transfer in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Boulder is in the Denver metropolitan area, so transfer from Denver to Boulder is trivial. I doubt any other mode of transportation is going to systematically beat that, although you may or may not find cheaper ...

According to the Grand Canyon Site it's a great day trip from the Canyon by car. Several other sites also refer to accessing the Crater by car. Getting there: Car - Is 5.5 hours fair Based on ending next to the Crater instead of Winslow I'd say it's more then fair. Of course you could change where you start your trek to the Crater which will cut your ...

It depends on whether you want relatively flat trails or mountain biking, as you didn't say. The Scottsdale Green Belt is a paved trail several miles in length that begins just north of Shea Boulevard and ends in Tempe. There are only a few places on the trail that require crossing a street, as there are lots of tunnels that pass below busy streets. There ...

Do you plan to have a "base" somewhere in Arizona and start exploring from there, or are you on a trip and want to pass those places? I was stuck with a broken car in Arizona last year and a rather small town, and learned that they cancelled all bus routes to smaller towns in that area a few years ago. Even if the town was half way between Tucson on Phoenix ...

For small memorial plaques and the like, you can consult the American Memorials Directory and the Historical Marker Database, which turn up a handful of memorials. The only one that makes the list of the "Doughboy Center's" list of AEF memorials is the World War I memorial outside the Mohave County Court House in Kingman, Arizona. It has one of only seven ...

You will probably be hard pressed to find World War I memorials or other related sites in the West. You can probably start with the list of World War I memorials of which there are few in the United States and World War I museums which there are still fewer. As far as factories are concerned I would think that most of those would be on the East Coast but ...

Given your scheduling, one option is to drive. Google Maps shows it as a 13 to 13.5 hour drive, all on major highways (i.e. no questionable remote back roads involved). Both Orbitz and Expedia suggest that a one-way car rental from Tucson would cost about $145 including fees. Of course, with a drive that long you might want to stay overnight on the way. That ...

I finally dropped and email to The View hotel (inside Monument Valley). The wildcat trail hike must be completed before the sun goes down. As long as you do that you can stay on it later than 4:30.

Google Maps shows your two proposed routes as having a less than 5 mile and less than 10 minute difference. Which one is "faster" becomes almost entirely irrelevant at that point. So we're left with "more scenic." Of the two routes, one (via Payson) runs almost entirely through Tonto National Forest and Sitgreaves National Forest, while the other (via ...

As others have mentioned flying can be equally cheap as taking the bus or train on a journey of this length, depending on the time of booking, and if you're traveling round-trip. Driving is likely a bit more expensive if you don't already have a car. If you are traveling last-minute or one-way bus seems to be the best way. For that it'll be easiest to ...

There are many resources you can look at. You can probably start with official tourist guides for the states such as Arizona Guide or Utah.com, but if not you can probably Google IT or use Rodeoz, which has some of the many rodeos listed state by state.

I have only been to Sedona a few times but Slide Rock and Hiking are the only two suggestions I have. If you like cliff jumping or swimming Slide Rock is a great place to start. http://azstateparks.com/Parks/SLRO/index.html Also, there is a ton of hiking and things to see. There are several great references through a google search. Unfortunately I always ...
