3. Hop Aboard a Luxury Train for an Epic way to see the beautiful Southwest
Starting in Denver or Moab, enjoy a 2-day journey full of extraordinary landscapes and exclusive national park views inaccessible by car. During the day take in sites of ancient rock canyons, natural arches, and follow the mighty Colorado River while relaxing in the lounge car or the outdoor veranda enjoying excellent cuisine. At night, relax and get a good night's rest at an amazing hotel before continuing on. For a truly exceptional vacation, extend your trip and explore more of the stunning southwest before or after the train journey.
4. Go for an evening kayak and witness the bioluminescence
Choose from visiting St. Croix, USVI, or Puerto Rico for an amazing evening experiencing a glowing bay while kayaking. As you glide through the water, watch the water light up around you. It is best viewed on darker nights, so it is best to avoid the full moon.
