  1. Default Grand Canyon Area November 2008

    Hi, Please can anyone help us. On Nov 12 2008 we plan to fly from England to Houston to visit relatives and stay 4 nights, then fly to Vegas and stay 4 nights. Hire a car and drive to the Grand Canyon South Rim for 1 night, then maybe Zion. Where else can we go? Is San Antonio near Houston interesting (my husband like to photograph urban landscapes/people) and can we get a rest in somewhere relaxing before we fly back from Vegas? Nothing booked yet so ideas very welcome and, importantly, what will the weather be like in November? We don't want to rush around and can maybe go back another year to do places we can't fit it. Total holiday time 14 days.

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    To get right to your questions San Antonio is a very interesting city, and you can probably get there and back from Houston (about 200 miles one-way) in a fairly long day. Zion is really not that easy to get to from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, you would have to go all the way around the canyon by way of either Page, AZ or Las Vegas, NV. Plan on seeing Zion from Las Vegas, not the Canyon. But there are plenty of things to do near the Grand Canyon. Remember that the rim of the Canyon is many thousands of feet above sea level and so it will get cold. Average daytime highs will run around 52°F (11°C) with overnight lows typically falling to 24°F (-4°C), and you can expect rain (or snow) at least a couple of days during your travels.
