We are planning spring break trip from Phoenix to Las Vegas with two kids. Does it seem doable or are we trying to accomplish too much?
Here is our itinerary:
April 8 - early morning arrival into Phoenix, drive through Jerome to Sedona, stop at the Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village, visit Chapel of the Holly Rocks, time permitting, Montezuma's Castle. Drive to Grand Canyon, late check-in.
April 9 – Grand Canyon, staying near the park, hiking.
April 10 – another day in the area, leaving for Canyon de Chelly in the afternoon, arriving to Chinle late at night
April 11 – exploring Canyon de Chelly. Do we have enough time for a full day canyon trip arranged with Thunderbird Lodge considering the fact that we are planning to leave for Monument Valley (staying in Kayenta)? If not, we will try to take a half-day trip and a hike to the White House Ruin. Leaving for Kayenta in the afternoon.
April 12 - tour of Monument Valley (do we need to arrange it in advance?), leaving for Page in the afternoon
April 13 – staying in Page, Antelope Canyon, possibly, boat tour of Lake Powell, leaving for Bryce Canyon, late check-in
April 14 – exploring Bryce Canyon, staying another night there
April 15 – more of Bryce Canyon or not, short tour of Zion on the way to Las Vegas. Hope to make it early enough for a show in Las Vegas
April 16 – Las Vegas. Red eye flight home.
Any ideas, warnings and suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
