We are planning to go from San Diego to Grand Canyon. We also want to see Hoover Dam. We have about 7 days for this trip. We are travelling with young kids so we need to stop atleast every three hours for an hour during the road trip. I do not know where to start the planning part and all your help will be appreciated. Here are some questions that may be a start.
1) Are there other destinations that we can do along the route or in the near vicinity along with Yellow Stone and Hoover Dam. We are visiting the west coast from the mid west and would like to make the max use of this time without stressing out the children
2) Could you suggest some interesting routes. How long would our road trip take with our plan to stop every 3 hours for an hour - if thats possible. I do not want to drive in a car with screaming restless kids :)
3) Would Indian Reservation or the South rim be a good idea for us (I am thinking the South Rim - what are your thoughts). We are interested in seeing the canyon and the might of it and we are hoping to take shuttles or tour buses where we can with the kids.
4) We would like to stay in a good hotel (four stars or atleast three) during the travel and at the destination. Any input is welcome.
Please share your thoughts about any questions i have not asked.
Thanks you very much.
