I'm starting to plan a family road trip for next summer from Dallas to the Grand Canyon (and back). It will be 3 of us (myself, husband and 12 yr old son). I know a few key things I want to see and know we have to hit route 66, but other than that I have no idea where to start or what route to take. Other than the basic route from Dallas to CG, I don't know what route I should take back.
We are planning a 7 day trip (Sat to Sat) by car. I can research interesting hotels, but not sure on cities I should start with.
