2 week Grand Circle Itinerary in April- your thoughts ?

Jump to last reply

Planning a a 2 week S Utah, N Arizona tour of the National Parks. Traveling with 8 and 10 YO boys along with my wife. We have the following outline for the trip and are looking for input. I have a lot of Holiday Inn points, and am trying to minimize travel cost, so tryingto use them whenever possible. We are in generally good shape and love the outdoors.

April 7 2012: Fly in to LV from Connecticut, Drive to St George (holiday inn) ( Pick up supplies)
April 8th- Zion NP - hiking (angels landing?, tough first hike). Staying in St George (Holiday Inn)
April 9th- Zion for half a day travel to Bryce for Sunset. Stay at Rubys? orGrand Staircase Inn (cannonville)? suggestions welcome.
April 10th -Bryce - hiking
April 11th - ATV in Casto canyon in the morning, Drive Scenic Rte 12 to Torrey (Austins Chuck WagonLodge?)
April 12 - Capitol Reef / Goblin State Park/ Little Horse Canyon (which would you make a priority given the time constraints?) Stay in Green River Holiday inn.
April 13 - Dead Horse SP/ Canyonlands NP - Mesa arch at Sunset. Stay at Holiday inn in Moab
April 14- River Rafting Trip - suggested outfitter? Stay at HI in Moab again
April 15th - Arches NP - Firey Furnace tour / Delicate arch (which one should we do at sunset?) Stay at HI in Moab
April 16th - Canyonlands - Needles district ( is this worth doing? other suggestions for this day? more Moab area sights?) - Stay in Moab HI or the View at Momument Valley?
April 17 - Momumnet Valley/ Gooseneck SP stay in Page AZ Holiday Inn
April 18th - Lake Powell/ Antelope Canyon/ Horseshoe bend - Drive to South Rim of GCNP (holiday inn at South Rim)
April 19th - Grand Canyon - Hiking the Rim (stay at Holiday Inn South Rim
April 20th - Grand Canyon / Drive/ Hoover Damn/ Vegas Strip (stay at HI property)
April 21 - Pinball Museum, Fly back to CT on 4:30 flight

I realize we are packing alot of stops into a short time frame but we are really trying to catch the highlights. I have spend a week at Acadia national park and didn't get to see everything, so i know what Im up against. Are their any stops you might cut out, or places you might take extra time at? We would like to squeze a couple hour horseback ride in somewhere...any suggestions? Anything else you ca think of that the boys might enjoy?

I appreciate any input.....
Thanks
