  1. Default Vegas to Grand Canyon - most scenic

    G'day from Australia! My son (9yo) and I will be visiting the US in January 2011, and will be driving to the Grand Canyon (South Rim) from Las Vegas. We have a few nights at the Grand Canyon, so we have a whole day to drive from LV to GC. We'd like to get a good taste of the area - does anyone recommend a route that has some nice towns to stop (for a drink/snack/look around etc) and sights to see?
    We are both keen photographers and so are more interested in 'picturesque' more so than 'historical', but we'd also like the chance to actually meet some real people (not just people working in airports or hotels, or other tourists!).
    As I said, we have a whole day to do the one-way trip, so don't mind a few detours off the direct route to see some nice places.

    Default One major route

    There really is only one major route to get to the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas, and that is US-93 to I-40 to AZ-64. You can hop off of I-40 and explore some of the former US-66 in various places (such as Kingman to Seligman). You may be interested in our Route 66 resources found at this link.
