How to plan your first road trip

Road trips hold a special place in my heart. For our honeymoon, my husband and I embarked on a week long adventure traveling to different US states.

Aside from the routine trips to San Francisco, neither of us has experienced an all-American road trip. We didn’t exactly know what we’re getting ourselves into. Thankfully, my husband married quite the planner. After hours  ...

Gear Up with Zion Adventure Company

Zion Adventure Company is a rental company conveniently located near the entrance to Zion National Park. They provide services such as rental gears, guided hikes and canyoneering, rock climbing and other outdoor activities.
