Part II: How to travel America in 7 days by car

Hello, guys! Oh man, it took me forever to write this blog post, just because our last road trip was super crazyyy... If you didn't read my first part of how to travel America in 7 days, make sure to check it out here and not miss out all cities that I shared there. After Santa Fe, we drove to Acoma Pueblo Sky City in New Mexico.

5. Acoma Pueblo Sky City, New Mexico

After seeing beautiful Santa Fe, we decided that we have to see a Native American pueblo village and the best choice for us was Acoma Sky City, because it was on our way to our next stop at Flagstaff. We woke up quite early to beat the crowd and heat. Believe me, it was a great decision, because around 11am it got hotter.  Native Americans still reside there without electricity, sewer systems or water. To get to the village, you have to stop at their visitor center, where you can watch a video about the tribe and also walk around their museum to learn more. A tour costs $25 per person. You can take pictures of the village, but not of the people unless you ask permission before you shoot them. Also, you can take picture of the church, but as soon you enter the church, no photography is allowed. I truly enjoyed our tour around the village, getting to talk with locals, trying some of their delicious bread and buying wonderful souvenirs.

6. Flagstaff, Arizona

We decided to take a small walk around the city and see what you can do in Flagstaff. The town offers a lot of cute restaurants and we definitely advise you to stop at the Mountain Oasis. They have a ton of delicious and healthy food, along with happy hour. Since we planned to drive the next morning to the Grand Canyon, we went to sleep very early so we could get up very early.

7. Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

The next morning, we got up while it was still dark outside. We planned to watch the sunrise at the Grand Canyon. We drove from Flagstaff, taking Hwy 89. We were able to see only the South Rim of the Grand Canyon as the sun came up, before proceeding along the rim toward Grand Canyon Village. I will give your more information about the Grand Canyon in my next blog post. We ended up crashing in Williams that night.

Hope you enjoyed reading my travel blog post. More is coming!
