Grand Canyon from Phoenix - 4 nights, what to do?

Jump to last reply

I have a business conference in April in Phoenix, and at the end of the week, my husband and 9 yr old son and 3 1/2 yr old daughter will join me there. We want to rent a care and drive up to the Grand Canyon Friday April 12th - I figure it's a good opportunity to see it! So I booked 3 nights at Yavapai Lodge and now I'm wondering what we should do while we are there.

I've read posts where people say staying more than 2 nights in the GC is too much...my daughter is small, so we wouldn't be doing major hikes. I really don't know what to plan to do while there. I am open to staying in other places along the way and back - we are flying home to Boston through Phoenix on Tuesday, have reserved a hotel in Phoenix Monday night.

We are looking for kid friendly things to do, and places to eat... at the GC, and along the way and back to / from Phoenix. I would love to get my son outdoors, and away from the tablet, and burn some of my daughter's energy.... and enjoy something for me and my husband too. I hope it's not too tall an order!
thanks for your suggestions,
Jacki
