Thinking about where you want to go, or what you want to do with your money, is a great way to have a clear plan and goal, and can help you stick to your financial plans.
Here are just a few of my Top 5 Dream Travel Destinations. What are your top dream travel destinations?
1) Grand Canyon
Grand Canyon National Park is located in northern Arizona near the southern border of Utah and the southeastern tip of Nevada.
The Grand Canyon is a steep-sided canyon carved by the Colorado River in Arizona, United States. Unique combinations of geologic color and erosional forms decorate a canyon that is 277 river miles (446km) long, up to 18 miles (29km) wide, and a mile (1.6km) deep. I can only imagine that Grand Canyon overwhelms your senses through its immense size.
South Rim is open all year. North Rim is closed for the winter. The South Rim has more than two dozen hotels, motels, and lodges to choose from. Accommodations can also be secured in the Village of Tusayan and the town of Williams, which both lie just outside the park boundary; Tusayan is about a 15-minute drive and Williams a one-hour drive from Grand Canyon Village (traffic permitting). The North Rim has several lodging options to choose from including the Grand Canyon Lodge located within the park, and Jacob Lake Inn located north of the park boundary.
Entrance to the park is $25 per private vehicle, $10 per pedestrian or cyclist.
