Arizona Itinerary Help Needed

Jump to last reply

I am in the process of planning my second trip to Arizona for this spring (over Easter week to be exact) and need a little bit of help.

The background: I will be traveling with my parents (early 70's mid 60's) for one week to Arizona. We will be flying into Phoenix as they have friends there, who we will be visiting right before we leave for home. We have visited Sedona, Grand Canyon, Meteor Crater parts of the Painted Desert and Disonsaur Tracks in Tuba City. We wish to make a short stop over to visit Sedona again but one visit to GC was enough for us.

What I was thinking: I would like to head up and do things along the boarder of Arizona and Utah. We have gone to Zion and Bryce before so I was thinking Monument Valley and perhaps Page and some areas around there.

Timeframe: We will have 6 days total (1 day that Saturday includes getting into Phoenix) I will need to be back in the Phoenix area by the following Friday (all day to drive back if needed).

What we would like to see: My parents are not big hikers but can do short hikes. They love nice scenery and don't mind looking at it, while I take short walks.

So can anyone offer suggestions with the 6 days? Once I have a firm itinerary, I'll start looking at places to stay so no budget there yet.

Thanks in advance.
