Best of the Southwest

Discover rich heritage and jaw-dropping scenery from the glitz and glam of Las Vegas to the boundless expanse of southwestern deserts. Spend two nights in Las Vegas with a guided tour of the Mob Museum and free time to stroll The Strip. On our way into Arizona we’ll marvel at the Hoover Dam, then experience the Grand Canyon and a scenic train ride on the Grand Canyon Railway. En route to Phoenix we’ll stop at Montezuma Castle National Monument. Cruise Canyon Lake on the Dolly Steamboat, explore the Heard Museum for Native American Art & Culture, and tour entire living ecosystems at Biosphere 2.
