  1. Default Vegas to Grand Canyon Honeymoon Sightseeing

    Hello. We are coming over to Vegas in October to get married and have booked a night at the Grand Canyon National Park as part of our honeymoon. As we have never been to the states, we wanted to experience a 'road trip' so plan to hire a car and drive to GC. Any advice on car hire (we wanted an old american style car but can't get hold of one) and 'must see' places on the way would be greatly appreciated. We can't wait to see your fab country - so exciting!!!

    Old cars are very specialty rentals and cost a small fortune. If you want a treat, book a convertible. It will be either a new Ford Mustang or Chrysler Sebring.

    Las Vegas to Grand Canyon can easily be driven in one day. I'd recommend you take I-515/US-93 southeast out of town and cross the Hoover Dam. Depending on time of day and day of week, expect some delays through security to cross the dam. Stay on 93 to Kingman. Out of Kingman, take AZ-66 through Peach Springs to Seligman. This is the longest stretch of old Route 66 still in existence. At Seligman, take I-40 to Williams and AZ-64 to the park.

    On the way back, you can retrace your steps, but take I-40 all the way to Kingman. To avoid the dam, just north of Kingman you can take the truck bypass - AZ-68 to Laughlin, NV-163 to US-95, then 95 back to LV.

    If you can spend a night on the road on the way back, you can go up and around - leave the GC via the east entrance, then take US-89 north through Page and Kanab, then UT-9 into Zion. Leaving Zion, it's an easy drive back to LV on I-15.
