We are a couple from Toronto looking forward to explore Arizona, maybe New Mexico. We plan to start around beginning of September (after Labour Day) and we have 2 weeks at our disposal. My question is rather vague, but I hope I can still get some advice. We are not sure of the best way to plan this trip. Fly to Phoenix, stay a few days, then drive to the Grand Canyon, or other places, eventually travel to Santa Fe and fly back from there (not sure whether there is a flight from Santa Fe to Toronto). Or maybe take bus tours and return to Phoenix each day? Is this possible with all these enticing destinations? I have been poring over maps and I am less and less sure that I can decide what is the best way to plan and schedule this trip. Would appreciate any advice from locals or from people who have done this before and have good ideas about the best way to divide our 2 weeks. I am not great with heat; is Phoenix and the region very hot still in September?
Thank you in advance,
