I am starting to plan for spring break and would like your feedback on itinerary. We are 2 adults and one 14 yo. We have been to Zion before and have done AL and Narrows. This time back meeting up with sister and family with 6, 8 yrs olds. They are new to area.
They have two weeks. So they want to go to Anaheim (Mickey Mouse) then drive toward Las Vegas. I am thinking of recommending Death Valley for 2-3 days for them, then Las vegas. By that time we will arrive on Sat 3/22 and meet up. Drive immediately to Zion. Now I am a bit stuck with lodging. Husband prefer outside park accom. to have more food choices. We stayed at Desert Pearl last time and liked it, but having trouble seeing availability. So thinking maybe Ponderosa Ranch Resort. I know it's a bit out, but there are trails within resorts and trail to Observation Point I think. We would drive into park one day too and do AL again. The possible pluses would be more activities for kids to do like ATV, pool, trampoline, zipline, etc... You think the experience would be ok? any other alternatives?
Then we will split up Wed and drive to Havasu Falls, to hike down Thursday morning, staying THur and Frid nites, come up Sat to get back to LAS and home Sunday. My sister would choose Bryce or Grand Canyon I guess to do for 2-3 days and back to LAS to fly home too.
I guess I am looking for any opinions or suggestions or pearls on accommodation, activities for this group. THanks a bunch.
