When I asked our local tour guide at the Monument Valley as where else he would recommend us to visit, it was Valley of Gods. We were not disappointed at all. Just a reminder that it is hot in summer and there is no facility.

Head past Monument Valley and go through Mexican Hat. Look for a turn off onto a dirt road on your left, signposted Valley of the Gods. This is a 15 mile loop road that's can be done in a saloon car. And it is simply unbelievable. Easily as impressive as Monument Valley, but with no restrooms, cafes, gift shops or... More

When I talked to friends about taking in Monument Valley, one of them told me not to miss the Valley of the Gods. My friend said that the views were as spectacular and more accessible. The area has also been used in a number of films, which speaks to its grandeur. Valley of the Gods is reached by turning off... More

Smaller but much more scenic than Monument Valley, and no fee. If entering in the morning start at the east entrance and the buttes will be lighted better. Reverse for an afternoon. Hint: for a real outdoors treat, stay at the B&W on the west end of the drive. It will be literally you, the coyotes, and the stars at... More

This was well worth a drive round as it is like nowhere else! It does get very hot, so take plenty of water. You can drive round in a loop and come out further down the main road. Combine with a trip to Gooseneck National Park for 2 awesome visits in one.

Just turned off the highway on a whim and are we glad we did. This place is one of the prettiest places in the west. Roads are passable in a regular car and no problem in an SUV. We loved it here and would love to camp here.

After many films and imagined clichés, thie Monument Valley is a must that will not deceive anybody. Take a Navajo led tour, as they drive you for more that 3 hrs around the valley, it is very nice, interesting and worth the price you have to pay.

This drive is not nearly as good as Monument Valley. Keep driving to Monument Valley for a much more impressive site.

We had never heard of Valley of the Gods until we drove by the brown sign at the unimpressive entrance & thought the name sounded cool enough to investigate. We were on a 4,500 mile road trip, and it wasn't on our itinerary, but I'm SO thankful we turned around and drove into the park. Oh my heart... it was... More
