2 day trip from Las Vegas to GCNP

I'm hoping you are able to give me a few suggestions at where my partner and I (both aged 21) can stop and look at on the way to the Canyon from Vegas. I have listed the following information to help you:

Hiring a car at 10am and driving from Vegas to Canyon on the 20/03/08.

Will spend the day at the park on the 21st

Will drive back to Vegas to drop the car off at 5pm.

Anything that you think might interest us would be great.

Thanks :)

There is nothing along the way that can compare to what awaits you at the Grand Canyon with the exception of the Hoover Dam. That will be about an hour out of LV and you'll be driving right over it. Stop to take a look at one of the most amazing structures that man has ever created. Then get back in the car and go as quickly as you can to see the Grand Canyon, which of course is one of the greatest things that God ever created.

As mentioned not much unless you take a little longer time and do the Rt 66 drive. You can stop in my little town of WIlliams for some good eats and all the rt 66 stuff you can carry. You basically have to drive by it anyways to get to the GC. If you do that exit off the 1st exit for williams, then drive through the town (one way streets) then you just keep on that main road in williams, go under the freeway and you are on highway 64 which takes you to the GC.

At Hoover Dam, park your car at the Arizona side. It's free. On your way to GCNP maybe take a short detour to Seligman for some funny old R66 stuff, or drive R66 from Kingman and stop at Hackberry and maybe visit Grand Canyon caverns near Peach Springs.

But that all will take time of course. Definitely take the short side trip to Williams though and have a drink and some food along R66.
