Valley Tour or Self Tour (in a car)

Postby jchapell » Fri May 09, 2014 11:59 am

We will be in the Valley early next week for a full day before heading out with our wilderness permit.
Since this is our first time, we have been debating whether to:
- Do the Valley Tram tour (the weather looks great), or
- driving in our rental car and “seeing the sights” on our own.
I would love to hear more experienced thoughts on the topic. Thanks!

Reduce traffic and fumes. Take the tram. Park and walk everywhere, or rent a bike. Don't drive, and reduce your own frustration as well, since the roads get bumper to bumper predictably every afternoon all summer.
