Looking for advice on this road trip. We are a family of 3, myself, my husband and our 15 yo son. We've logged many miles on road trips, so hitting the road isn't new for us, we've done trips such as NH to the Keys, NH to Ontario and NH to the 4 Corners.
This July we are looking at a shorter trip, starting in Los Angeles and ending in Las Vegas. Starting and ending points are fixed as are the dates. Here is the itinerary I have so far:
Friday AM - Leave LA, drive to Sedona, AZ. Overnight in Sedona
Saturday - Tour Sedona in the AM, drive to GCNP, South Rim. Overnight @ El Tovar
Sunday - Sunrise @ South Rim then drive to North Rim. Overnight @ Grand Canyon Lodge
Monday - Sunrise @ North Rim then drive to Las Vegas.
I need to be in Las Vegas ~ 3pm to setup for a tradeshow.
I've also considered going from South Rim to Bryce Canyon and overnight there on Sunday. It would be closer to Vegas but I like the idea of experiencing both sides of the canyon and I was fortunate enough to get reservations at both rims just this week. We've also never been to Grand Canyon.
Is the itinerary ok? Any suggestions on the route from North Rim to Vegas?
