  1. Default First Roadtrip to Grand Canyon

    I need some help on how to plan a road trip from St. Louis, Missouri to the Grand Canyon South Rim. I'm planning on taking my teenager over Spring break and don't have a clue how to plan lodging and attractions.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    To start with you will need two overnight stops in each direction and the best part of 6 day's travelling. A lot will depend on how many days you are planning intotal for the vacation and how many you want to spend at the Grand canyon. It would make it a little more interesting by taking a different route home, so you could use I 44/40 on the way out and perhaps from the South rim head through Monument valley and cut a path to I 70 on the way back.

    You shouldn't really plan on covering more than 5-600 miles a day and on the way out you would be looking at Oklahoma, [or a little further West ] Albuquerque and Grand canyon.

    Take a look at the Map centre where you can plot routes and find attractions and when you have got a couple of ideas, let us know how long you have and we can help fill in the blanks.
