Hello TA members,
I have a conference in San Diego in early May and my husband and I would like to add on a visit to the Grand Canyon after it ends. We plan to fly from San Diego and then rent a car, but would appreciate suggestions as to which route (Vegas to GC or Phoenix to GC) is more scenic. The difference in distance (car time) seems negligible, so we are most interested in what we see from the car and neat stops along the way.
If the Vegas route is suggested, is it recommended that we do the Historic Route 66, even though it will add a bit of time once we get off of Hwy 40? Or should we drive up from Phoenix and walk around in Sedona for a break before continuing on to the GC?
We plan to stay at the Grand Canyon overnight and hike the next day.
