We are 2 adults with 2 teenage boys travelling to the Southwest in late June/July. so far our plans include a night in Sedona or Flagstaff and 2 nights at the Grand Canyon. Then on to Las Vegas. Any suggestions for somewhere fun to stay in Las Vegas? We then want to drive to Kings Canyon and on to Yosemite, taking in some white water rafting along the way. Any ideas for a good route from Las Vegas to Kings Canyon and any recommended places to stay close to rafting rivers. By looking at the map it looks like there isn't a direct route from Vegas to Kings Canyon. We are not particularly interested in Death Valley as I hear you cannot step outside your car at that time of year.
