This is a must to go to if you are in the area. This is a wonderful science and math Museum for all ages. We were so impressed with all of the fun and interactive science projects they have on display for you to participate in. For two adults and a child it was $20. We stayed and played for two hours.
Even if it’s not erupting, it’s worth a trip. The area is beautiful. You do have to drive about 10 minutes on a dirt/gravel road. If you just Google it in Google maps, it gives you the correct directions.
We love seeing the “worlds largest”… anything! Because it’s on wheels, they move it around town. Right now it is at the Loves gas station.
This business is now CLOSED
There are no words to explain how much we love this roller coaster! If you kind of like roller coasters, sit in the front. If you want to feel like you just might possibly die on this thing, sit in the very last row. You will love it. Also, I think they sell a pass for a block of time and you can ride the log ride and the coaster as much as you want.
We stayed here Summer 2017. We pulled in in the dark and left at dawn. I assume it is very beautiful. Because of the wooded area, I recommend trying to arrive during daylight. It was a little difficult to find our spot and maneuver in the dark.
This was no doubt beautiful, but my kids were a little bored. It's a nice scenic slow ride down the river and I think they were hoping for some action. You take the ride all the way to horse shoe bend and back. It is quite lovely. We had an excellent tour guide. The ride on the bus through the tunnel was the kid's favorite part! Also, there are a lot of rules for what you can/can't bring so pay attention. Also, arrive early and plan ahead in case of traffic or something... they leave on time no matter what, and you don't get your money back.
This is the perfect place to stay if you want to camp near the Grand Canyon. We walked or rode our bikes everywhere. It was so beautiful! Just know that you need to make your reservations months in advance!!! When I originally tried to book, they were full. But I kept checking back in daily and one a spot opened up. I think people book several days not knowing exactly when they will be there and then let the dates go that they don't need.
We visited here in Summer 2017. I had gone there as a kid and I remember it being so cool to put one foot in NM, one foot in AZ, one hand in CO and the other hand in UT. Now, 30 years later coming back, my kids thought the same thing too! They had a blast taking pictures of each other laying across different state lines. The vendors also sell beautiful Native American art, jewelry and souvenirs. They do charge $5 to get it, but we thought it was worth it!
We stayed here in Summer 2017. It is a beautiful, convenient park located very close to Mesa Verde Cliff dwellings. Also, there are horses next door and we were able to do some impromptu riding lessons!
