Family road trip Boise -> Grand Canyon. Need suggestions for side trips

Jump to last reply

My husband, 8yr old son and I are taking a trip to the Grand Canyon. We are driving and have 8 days total to go from Boise to the Grand Canyon and home. We plan on maybe 2 or 3 days at the Grand Canyon, a day to drive there and a day driving home - but wonder where we should spend the other 3 days. I'm considering Lake Powell, Canyonlands National Park, Four Corners, Paria Canyon, etc... But - I have never been to most of these places and the few that I have seen was when I was 10, so I do not really remember what was there!

I would love to find places to stop along the way, maybe halfway to spend the night and maybe the day to tour around, then drive to the grand canyon...and the same on the way home...

Also, I am an amateur photographer and hope to get some good landscape photos during this trip!

I appreciate any advice you all can give!
