My family of 5 is planning on taking a mini road trip to grand canyon from orange county in first week of april for spring break. I know it's last minute thus need all the advise possible since all the hotel inside the park are booked. My kids are 6-12 years old so I don't know if it's best to just drive straight to GC in one day? Is the route there interesting? Any sightseeing opportunities on the way? My plan is to take 1 day to drive to GC, then stay there for two nights, then depart to vegas on 3rd days spend a night there then drive home the following night. I heard about zion and bryce national park and would love to go there too but not sure if we can fit both or at least one of those park in. Any advise would be awesome!
