I wonder if anyone can help me, my friend and I are planning our trip Phoenix to Las Vegas for March next year. We've done a lot of research of places to go and things to see, since we'll be taking a 10 hour flight just to get to Arizona (from the UK) we are keen not to miss much!
We have booked flights and a hotel in Phoenix for the first night and then plan to hit the road going up towards Sedona, then onto the Grand Canyon, Then Lake Havasu City and finally from there up to Las Vegas where we have a hotel booked for 3 nights and flying home from Las Vegas. All in all there is two weeks between our flight out to PHX and our flight back to LHR.
This will be our first ever road trip. We are really excited, and somewhat apprehensive, and are keen on being prepared properly as we dont really know what to expect. We are beginning to think that perhaps it may be a slightly ambitious trip for our first time but we fell in love with all the beautiful things in the area.
So the only issue we are having is that we have no idea how much time to set aside in the different places. We were hoping to set aside 2 days for the Grand Canyon and 2 days in Havasu City, but other than that we have no idea how best to plan the time. Is 2 days at the Grand Canyon enough?
Also are there any places/things to see that are off the beaten tourist track along this route that anyone knows of?
I'd hate to get behind on a Schedule and be rushing around and not enjoying our time or driving through the night to keep on track or vice versa, the trip being too short and having time to kill before our stay in Vegas... any ideas or advice for taking a trip like this would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time i know it's a long post!
