We are going to LA on our honeymoon in May, staying with a relative who will be driving us to Vegas mid way through our trip. We will then be hiring a car and in Vegas after a few nights there and we are going to visit the Grand Canyon. The idea was to drive from Vegas to GC in the morning and ive read it takes about 4.5 hours. I have no idea how long we will spend at the GC....a couple of hours or is there lots to see and do there?
From the GC we planned on driving later afternoon and staying somewhere maybe 200 miles away or maybe a bit more, i have seen on a map either Sedona or Lake Havasu City. From there, in the morning we would head to San Diego. As we are from England we arent used to long distance driving so need to split the journey up and this way we get to see more places. Can anyone recommend anywhere to pass through and stay over night or are the places i mentioned ok? I am just wondering if there is anywhere else that would be even better to see? Or whether we would need more time at the GC.
Thanks for your help and advice in advance.
p.s just adding this, We leave Vegas on Monday morning and need to be back in Los Angeles on the Saturday, we wanted to see the Zoo in San Diego and possibly meet up with a friend if she is around but thought of an extra day in San Diego as a beach day which actually isnt neccessary really as we are going to the beach in LA. So that could be Friday in San Diego and stay over night, back to LA saturday morning. So the question really is what can we see on the way from the GC to San Diego and we have about 3-4 days to play with.
