Arizona & New Mexico Road Trip with Son

Jump to last reply

Right after Thanksgiving I will be driving from LA to Cleveland with 24-year-old son; a unique opportunity for a little adventure. (We are leaving Sunday, 11/25. We are New Englanders but he lives in Cleveland right now.) We are taking a southern route through Arizona and New Mexico. He has never seen this part of the country and I haven't been there since 1983! I would love help from Fodorites on route and what to do along the way. Keep in mind that we have limited schedule even though we would love to be taking more time. He likes outdoor adventure and a reasonable dose of art. We both are adventurous eaters and would love authentic local food. On a moderate budget. What are temps likely to be that time of year?
Sun: drive from LA to Grand Canyon South Rim. Stay at El Tovar? Enjoy sunset and sunrise.
Mon: after a morning rim walk, drive to Santa Fe. Stop at Petrified Forest? Other short, interesting stops?
Tues: stay in Santa Fe. Day trip to Taos. O'Keeffe museum? Other suggestions? Hotel and dining suggestions? We will be in Santa Fe for 2 nights if we follow this plan.
Wed-Thurs: driving to Cleveland either through St. Louis or Memphis. Yes, long driving days.
