The USA is the obvious place to head for movie-themed holidays. Monument Valley is the location for classic Westerns, including John Ford’s Stagecoach (1939) and The Searchers (1956) and Sergio Leone’s masterpiece Once Upon a Time in the West (1968), making it the ultimate cowboy fantasy setting. You can stay at the boutique-style View ( ), inside the park, or motel Goulding’s Lodge ( ); both have jaw-dropping views of the buttes and spires of Monument Valley. Don’t, though, expect saloon fights; the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park ( lley.htm), to give it its full name, is in the dry Navajo Nation autonomous region.
