(meant to say "in 7 days") Planning a road trip for week with 2 adults and 3 kids (10, 12 and 4) and not sure if this is too much traveling:
Day 1: Leave from Los Angeles (really Rancho Cucamonga) to Kingman, AZ, spend night (about 4 hour drive)
Day 2: Drive to Grand Canyon spend day, ride rental bikes and then sleep in Flagstaff (about 3 hour drive in morning and 1.5 hour drive in late afternoon)
Day 3: Tour Sedona, walking one of the trails and then sleep in Scottsdale (estimating 3 hour drive, when including driving around Sedona)
Day 4-5: Stay in Scottsdale and relax around pool, maybe visiting Taliesin West and/or local driving range and I am sure they will want to watch the new Harry Potter movie :)
Day 6: Drive to Palm Desert (4 hour drive), going on the tramway and spend night or spend extra night in Scottsdale
Day 7: Drive back to to LA
Is that too much with the kids? I want to give the kids time in the evening to enjoy the pools at each of the hotels. Two of the kids have never traveled (older kids are our niece and nephew), so I am somewhat worried about the "daily" driving. The 4 year old should actually be okay. Niece and nephew should be okay with the heat in Scottsdale as they live in the Inland Empire (hot area of southern CA).
Any thoughts or changes to schedule would be appreciated. First time planning a trip of sorts, but did many of these types of trips as a kid.
