  1. Default Vegas to Grand canyon to Phoenix

    My family & I are coming to Phoenix at the end of March to attend a wedding. However we want to fly into Vegas and then drive to Phoenix hoping to visit the Grand Canyon on the way. We would want to leave Vegas early on a Friday morning and need to reach Phoenix by noon on Saturday for the wedding. Any suggestions for how we can do this and what we should see given our time constraints. Thanks for the help in advance

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    You aren't going to get a lot of time at the canyon on this schedule, but you should be able to get a quick but enjoyable look around.

    From Vegas, you are looking at around 5 hours to drive to the Grand Canyon, assuming you can avoid any major delays crossing the Hoover Dam. If you leave in the morning, that should give you most of the afternoon to explore the South Rim. I'd see as much as you can there, and make plans to spend the night in Flagstaff, which will set you up for a nice easy drive into Phoenix on Saturday morning.

    Also worth considering, if you aren't planning to return to Vegas, it could very well be cheaper to simply fly into Phoenix and drive from there. Your travel time will be similar, but you'll avoid the one way drop fees with a round trip car rental.
