One of our bucket list destinations on our USA road trip in the American Southwest was taking our kids here. And with so many amazing things to do in Monument Valley and spending time with a local Navajo guide, our visit was an incredible experience!
The Monument Valley Drive (loop drive) is a 17-mile unpaved dirt road. It’s one of America’s most scenic drives. You can either self-drive the 17-mile loop road through Monument Valley or join a guided tour with a Navajo Guide.
It’s named after the Hollywood director who made John Wayne famous through the western movies filmed here. You can also get a classic photo of the kids on a famous horse for $5 who has featured in many movies and TV commercials such as the Marlboro man.
