I've used the search feature to read old threads but I'm still not certain of our plan.
We are a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 small kids under 8.) We are trying to put together a last minute road trip to the Grand Canyon (South Rim) from San Francisco (east bay) this Summer. We'll be traveling in our minivan, staying in hotels/motels along the way and can spend 7-10 days on the road. Would love any tips or destinations we should check out. We want it to be a leisurely trip taking in the sights and not spending more than 5 hours driving each day. Thank you for your help!
