Hi out there
Our interest in traveling to the Grand Canyon was sparked this morning after reading our local newspaper's travel section with an article titled "Quintessential American Road Trip" - Santa Fe, Grand Canyon and Monument Valley Make a Majestic Vacation."
The woman who wrote the article had flown to Albuquerque and rented a car from there for their family's road trip. We live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and my husband thinks it would be a great idea to drive from home base and see the sites as we go. (if we do go, we will be taking our 13 year old son along)
I'm assuming it will be a very long road trip and not sure if this is a good idea. Just wondering what your opinions are and, if we do decide to drive, can you recommend an interesting route and stops and stays worth making on our way.
Thinking of traveling in June?, August? or September? and dedicating 2 weeks to the road trip. Is this possible or worth it? Any info would be appreciated.
