Heading back out west for our summer vacation this year. Booked a flight into SLC, and will fly out of Vegas when we're done.
We enjoy a variety of cuisines, but will gravitate towards steaks and Asian foods. We aren't likely to try Indian or African. Our NJ/NY bias will lead us to mock the pizza and bagels, but we'll give 'em a shot if you say they are good.
I think most of our drives are reasonable, and we'll probably try to stop just for gas from one destination to the next.
Each place is 2-3 nights, so we'll have a chance to try multiple places. The plan now is to get some hiking done early, before it gets hotter. Breakfast may be a day of departure thing only.
Thanks in advance for your help and suggestions. Included is our route and hotel info. We leave July 14th.
