If you are headed out on a road trip for spring break we might be able to help you out with travel tips and suggestions of neat places to visit. On top of the list is of course, Embry Riddle’s Prescott campus 🙂 A close second is the Grand Canyon, the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Phoenix, and Sedona. I have been to three of the above destinations and they are well worth the trip, so if you are in the Prescott area you are within a 2-3 hour drive of each area, I highly suggest taking advantage of it.
The grand canyon is great for hiking, seeing the sights, and learning a little about the nation’s history. The Lowell Observatory is breathtaking!! Pluto was actually discovered in the early 19th century by a scientist who worked at the observatory. The images of space and the technology that is available for visitors to see is incredible. At $20 a head with discounts available for youth, the elderly, military, and students it is well worth the trip.
Just remeber to check your oil, brakes, windshield wipers, coolant, air pressure, etc. before you set out on a trip. We want you to arrive at your destination safely so that we can give you an awesome tour here at Embry Riddle and send you on your way to the other cool places in our area. Have a great Spring Break, and we hope to see you here soon!
