1. Want to drive many days to nearby natural landscapes and national parks
Nearly like Red Rock Canyon (20 minutes drive), Hoover Dam (40-50 minutes drive)
Far from the most popular Antelope Canyon (4.5 hour drive), Horseshoe bend (4.5 hour drive), Zion National Park (2.5 hour drive), Bryce Canyon (3.5 hour drive) , Grand Canyon West or Grand Canyon National Park (2 hour drive, 4 hour drive)
If you just want to go to these scenic spots for a long day, it is recommended to participate in the one-day tour, not to drive a single day, 4.5 hours driving 9 hours a day is very hard. Underneath we recommend some single day groups
2. If you are familiar with the road conditions in the United States, there is no navigation and you are not worried about getting lost.
3. is expected to go to the Outlet to buy a lot of things.
You don't have to take a bus to buy a lot of things. (But Uber and Lyft can also be solved)
