hey guys! New here, found this searching google...
My dads sister and her husband are coming to visit the great U.S. of A... My mom, dad, and I are planning on doing a road trip to show them around the southwest part of America. Our trip will start from NW Houston and we would like to go see the Grand Canyon and also go to Las Vegas. We are limited on time and only have about 7 days for the full trip. We plan on leaving either May 23rd night or May 24th morning and would need to be back in Houston by 30th night.
This will be our first road trip in about 12-14 years since we haven't done much traveling lately. Its going to be five adults and we plan on taking our 2002 Ford Explorer (no 3rd row seats) (this should be comfortable, right?) Or should be take our 2002 Lexus ES300? Which car would y'all recommend for the best car to take on this trip?
Also whats a good route to take? Good places to stop/see? Places to spend the night (hotels)? Any recommendations, comments, or anything is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
