  1. Default San Francisco to Grand Canyon (Marble Canyon) to Las Vegas

    Hi All!

    So glad I found you as I am trying to plan a trip for this September.

    Hubby and I plan to drive from SF to where our rafting trip of the Grand Canyon starts in Marble Canyon. We were wondering what a good place to stop for the night would be. We don't have very long to get down there so can't go too far off of the path.

    After the rafting trip we will be driving to Las Vegas and spending a few days there and then driving back to SF. We do have a day or two to explore on the way back to SF from Las Vegas so any ideas on where to stop would be great.


  2. Default Vegas?

    From a quick look at one of the internet mapping engines, it looks like Marble Canyon, Arizona is about a half day beyond Las Vegas.

    I'd guess that somewhere around Las Vegas would be a reasonable stopping point for a first night -- it's around a 9-10 hour drive from San Francisco to Vegas, taking the southern route through Bakersfield and Barstow. Lots of hotels, lots of places to stay. And sets you up for a more comfortable day's drive to Marble Canyon.

    St George, Utah is about another 2 hours drive past Las Vegas, and could be another option to stay at -- but I hesitate to suggest anything that would be a 12+ hour long driving day to get to.
