The West section of Leisure Group Travel’s 2012 Group Itinerary Planning Guide gives tour organizers plenty of ideas for their next trip offering. Sample itineraries provide day-by-day details on fun things for clients to see and do.

Rapid City CVB’s “Parks, Monuments and Memorials,” for example, is a three-day trip highlighted by Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, Custer State Park and Badlands National Park. The Elko CVA’s four-day “National Cowboy Poet Gathering” (Jan. 27-30, 2013) spotlights this famous Nevada event and includes poetry readings, films, cowboy music performances and museum visits. Visit Cheyenne offers a full-day itinerary in Wyoming’s capital city, where highlights include the Wyoming State Museum, Terry Bison Ranch and a 90-minute ride on the Cheyenne Street Railway Trolley.
