UPDATE Without having been to any of the western destinations, it is difficult to plan any type of itinerary and I was hoping to get some suggestions for planning a family vacation for sometime in June of this year. We have round trip airline tickets on Southwest Airline from Nashville, TN to anywhere they fly (for each of us). We had a fantastic time going to Yosemite last summer, about the same time, and would like to take in a lot of natural wonders, with minimal city time. Here are some ground rules: Family of 4, with two girls, 8 and 11 One week “on the road” (could include weekend on each end of the week) We would rent a car at our destination airport, and drive We want to stay in hotels of good quality, like Hampton Inns, etc I want to take my photo gear (of course) We like to be independent, but might consider a guided tour or two Some destinations we are strongly considering are Salt Lake City, Portland, Seattle, or Spokane. Utah has a lot of National Parks that would provide endless photo ops, and Idaho, would certainly be within range. I don't know if the Tetons are within reach from one of those destinations, but that is also a possibility. (Manchester, NH could be an option because we could combine the trip with seeing family “back-home”. But that is the least desirable option due to us being familiar with that part of the country). If I can put together a good agenda, we will plan out the vacation and get underway. Where and what would you suggest?
