A bit overwhelmed planning trip to Grand Canyon/Mt Rushmore

Jump to last reply

Some time this summer (2012) my husband & I want to travel from Ohio to see the Grand Canyon/Mt Rushmore. I'm a bit overwhelmed planning a trip like this. All our vacations have been in the eastern U.S. I'm not sure if we should take a plane (would leave out of Pittsburgh Int'l Airport) and fly in to a place like Las Vegas or Phoenix, and then rent a car. Or should we take a bus trip. Or a train. We are in our 50s. I want an enjoyable trip and not one where we're exhausted by all the driving.

I guess I'm not quite sure where to start. Reading posts on this forum, I see some people like some of the other national parks as well as or more than GC.

Flying in to Vegas tends to overwhelm me because I would think we should spend time there as well. Yet that wasn't part of my initial plan.

Any helpful info from you more seasoned travelers would be much appreciated.
