This will be our first visit to see the Grand Canyon, we're really excited to see it. We're flying into Phoenix to see friends for a few days, drive to GCNP to spend the night, drive to see Hoover Dam, then on to Las Vegas for a few days. We have rented a car already for the trip, have a room in LV, and already have a reservation in GCNP.
My question: is there somewhere near where we're staying that we can get a nice meal the night that we're in the park (Monday 10/14)? We're staying at the Yavapai Lodge. The day/night we're staying there is our 35th anniversary, so it would be worth mucho husband points if I can take her to a nice dinner! I understand the Park is not a culinary destination so I don't have real high expectations, but hope I will be pleasantly surprised. Thanks for any tips you can offer.
