My wife and I are traveling by car in January and will spend about 6 days in Scottsdale. We are in our early 60's and like scenic roads, history, maybe some light hiking and eating at casual restaurants other than the chain types.
Below is a partial itinerary of our trip.
From Scottsdale we are going to Sedona for 2 days. We plan on stopping at the Montezuma Castle National Monument on the way up and once in Sedona we plan on doing both of the Trolley tours. The second day we would probably do a Pink Jeep tour and go to the Chapel of the Holy Cross We are staying at the Sedona Real Inn.
The third day we plan on driving to GCNP via Oak Creek Canyon and Hwy 180 north of Flagstaff. We will be staying at the El Tovar. We plan on leaving the car and taking the shuttle around the park.
On day 4 we had planned on going to Page and see Horse Shoe Bend and Lower Antelope Canyon but it seems Antelope Canyon closes for the winter? Is this true. If so we will drive to Grand Junction, CO and continue our trip.
Any other ideas or advise as to things to do or not do?
Also looking for recommendations for restaurants in these areas.
