Family fun in Utah

Hi, we are travelling through Utah from monument valley to Yellowstone NP we have all our national park stops worked out but we are looking for fun for the kids or quirky/unique things to break the trip up for the kids and keep it fun. The kids range in age from 3 to 14.

All help would be appreciated and any true American experiences for kids would be fantastic.

Thanks in advance

Countless activities can be found in Moab, from cycling to horse riding to river rafting, to canyoneering. Look for ideas on www.discovermoab.com

before you get to Moab there is Edge of the cedars state park in Blanding for an ancient puebloan eperience. Near to Moab is Hole N the Rock, a tourist trap type of place with a home cut into a sandstone rock.

Not sure where you are going after Moab, but there is a dinosaur quarry and monument up by Vernal in central Utah. I do not know much about this area, but here is the info>> www.utah.com/nationalsites/dinosaur.htm

Might be a good idea to post your rough route so the Utah experts can post ideas close to your planned path.

Knowing the rest of your route would be helpful - there's a lot of territory and parks between MV and Yellowstone. One stop to include would be Little Wild Horse Canyon for an easy slot canyon hiking experience.

Have fun.
