I have been too busy to plan places to stop, things to see along the way of our summer road trip, and I just discovered this forum, so I'm taking a chance to see if anyone can give me ideas. We are a family of 4 with a 6 year old boy and an 11 year old girl, traveling in a Yukon XL on a road trip from New Orleans to Los Angeles, with stopovers in Grand Canyon and Vegas. We live in New Orleans, and plan to leave on July 6th. I have 2 weeks to work with. I plan to travel north through Dallas towards I-40, and hope to make the first stop in Amarillo, TX. Do you think this is too much for the 1st day, or should I stop sooner? I was hoping to make the next night in Flagstaff as a base point for the canyon, spend the night there, get up early to see the canyon, and back to Flagstaff that night. For the next day, what is recommended to see near there? What is a MUST SEE besides the canyon itself? I hope to be in Vegas by the 10th, and spend 2-3 nights there, then on to LA. Any suggestions for the journey along the way?
