hey guys - i'm new here! planning a 4 week trip - chicago to west coast and back trip. very overwhelmed by the choices in the national parks - reading a ton!
right now i'm working on the grand canyon. should we stay/ visit the north or south rim? we're (son 13, daughter 10) not huge hikers but want to see what we can - safely! i see the north gets much less visitors -
also- after GC, we're off to Vegas via Hoover Dam. Looks like an easier drive from the south rim.
i'm toying with the idea of going to north rim for a nite (we'll be coming from Page, AZ) then going to S rim before heading to Vegas.
i would love any feedback and advice as to the above - also - how long should we allow at Hoover Dam??
thanks so much!
