Need a little help planning a trip from San Diego to Vegas with short stops at the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam.
We have hotel reservations in Vegas for Wed and are leaving San Diego that same day. Since our route from San Diego to Las Vegas goes right by the Hoover Dam we thought we would stop for a short visit. Then since the Grand Canyon is not much further (we were going to visit the Indian Reservation...not the South Rim) we wanted to see that too since none of us ever have. Can we do this??? We were thinking about leaving San Diego between 5 and 6 in the morning. I mapquested to the grand Canyon and it seems as though we are going way far north before we cut east and start heading toward AZ. Is this the best way to go. I have never driven out west so I'm not sure how to go. Help PLEASE!!!!
