Arizona and Sedona how many days each..

Jump to last reply

I am planning a 9 to 10 day trip to Arizona first week of June 2011. I want to spend some time in Sedona, Grand Canyon and Phoenix. What I do not know is where I should spend most of my time either Phoenix or Sedona. I will be in the Grand Canyon for 2 nights. What I am interested in doing is sightseeing hiking and I love nature based on this information what would you recommend. One more thing from my destination the only direct flight arrives in PHX around 7:00 p.m. I do want to cut my Grand Canyon road trip in ½ so I had thought of driving to Sedona day of arrival, or should I just start my trip in PHX and explore here drive to Sedona stay there for X amount of days and continue to Grand Canyon. Other problem only direct flight home leaves PHX at 7:00 a.m. so I would have to be in PHX night before coming home so I do not know what to do. Your assistance as always is priceless hope I can get some help for my days please let me know if this sound ok:
Drive to Sedona day of arrival probably a Thursday, stay there until Monday or Tuesday?. Drive to Grand Canyon spend 2 nights here Thursday drive back to PHX since I do not want to spend one night somewhere in between OR should I spend the 5 days in PHX and cut Sedona days to 2/3. Thank you.
