We are planning to rent a car to go on a road trip from LA to Grand Canyon end of July. Is this a good idea? We feel that tours from LA might be a bit rush and not enough time given to us to enjoy Grand Canyon. Do car rental place rent to us to drive so far? Most people discussed Grand Canyon trips from Las Vegas, but for us, Vegas is optional and our priority is Grand Canyon. Just need validation and hear from anyone before we decide what's the best way to go to Grand Canyon. Also, any good decent hotels suggestions? Thank you!
