Two big mistakes people make on trip to the Grand Canyon is weather and the direction of their drive through Sedona. Yes, everyone tries to hit both places in one day. First, check the weather at the Grand Canyon before you take off. If there’s...More

There are several view points and the view is AMAZING!! But you can not grasp how huge the canyon is from here, so I really recommend you do some hiking and you’ll enjoy a view with no other people around.

Yes, that is a perfect amount of time to see about all the highlights. Anywhere in the park is good lodging. It's just up to variables like how much you want to pay, how big your party is, what amenities you need, how close... More
