Arizona to California road trip

Jump to last reply

I and my 2 daughters are thinking about a possible road trip for this August. Duration would be about 2 weeks, beginning around the 11th or 12th.

We would fly into Phoenix, pick up a rental car, then head up to Sedona for several nights. We're not sure if we should base in Sedona and do all our sightseeing excursions out of there. Things we're interested in include:

Grand Canyon
Sunset Crater/Painted desert loop
Montezuma's Castle
Hiking
Horseback riding
Possible jeep tour in Sedona
Seeing Jerome/Prescott and any other interesting towns

Initially I thought we'd spend 3-4 nights in Sedona, stay at the Grand Canyon 1 night, then finish off with 2 nights in either Prescott or Jerome.

We would then head across to Anaheim for 3 nights, followed by 3 nights in San diego or Laguna beach.

Any insights or recommendations are greatly appreciated.

Thanks to all!
