I am just looking into a possible trip to Zion, the North Rim Grand Canyon, and Bryce Canyon in May. I have a reservation at the North Rim Lodge on May 20, so I would be looking to work the dates around that. For Zion, I am looking into Pioneer Lodge in Springdale and for Bryce we would try to get a room at Ruby's Inn. We haven't booked airfare but Las Vegas looks like the best option in terms of costs. How many nights would you recommend at each place? I was thinking 3 nights for Zion, 1 night for the North Rim, and 3 nights for Bryce.
We will be traveling with ou two kids ages 17 months and 4 years. How does the shuttle work? I would assume car seats won't be required? Will we be able to take a backpack carrier and stroller?
I am also considering looking for a house to rent in a central place and making day trips. But I am guessing that would be too much back I forth.
