I live in southeast Michigan, and I was recently checking plane tickets from Detroit to destinations in the western US. I checked the price of a flight to Salt Lake City expecting it to be in the $300-$400 range like normal, but I was shocked to find them only $170, which is much less than even a flight to Las Vegas.
I was thinking that to take advantage of this great price, we could take a family vacation to Utah. We would fly into Salt Lake, then drive down to Arches National Park and Canyonlands. I have a 14 year old and a 17 year old. Would you recommend this trip? What activities would you recommend?
