Fly into LV or Phoenix?

Jump to last reply

I'm contemplating a trip to the Grand Canyon, a long-time "wish list" item, over my Easter holiday. I'll have a week, and I plan to add another stop at least--probably Zion NP or Sedona.
My first question, as the title asks, is my destination airport. Current prices would be $936 R/T for LV, and $1060 for Phoenix, but Phoenix is only a 12 hour journey vs 18 for LV.
Do any Fodorites with western expertise know of reasons to prefer one to the other? I have heard that LV probably has cheaper car rentals? On the other hand, I hate bumper to bumper freeway traffic, and LV sounds more likely to produce that problem. Or is that uninformed speculation on my part?
