I've spent the morning reading dozens of trip reports and am starting to think about developing an itinerary but it is hard... looking for some advice please.
We're a family of 5 that will be flying in from Boston to Phoenix next April 2019. Kids will be 11, 8, 5. We want to see a number of sites but also don't want to have a bad time from too much driving. We would typically just spend 7 nights, but I'm not sure we could do more than Sedona and Grand Canyon in 7 nights.
Here's what I'm roughly thinking-- it already feels like a little much:
Day 1: Arrive Phoenix and head to Sedona (alternative is to stay a night closer after long flight)
Day 5: Grand Canyon. Given kids' ages don't think we'll do a lot of hiking here so may keep it short. Stay overnight here? Or head to Page same day?
Day 6/7: Page for Antelope Canyon and Glen Canyon river float
Is there a smarter way to do this? Would love any and all suggestions!!
