Grand Canyon in Late September?

Jump to last reply

Hello. I would like to plan a trip to Grand Canyon. Would the last few days of September be a good time to go? My office is closed then and I have the time off without using vacation.

I've never been to the Grand Canyon before. I'll be flying in from New York and my mother, who wants to see it, will fly in from Atlanta. We'll fly to Phoenix and drive from there or fly to Flagstaff, depending on cost. Since she is elderly there are limits on what we can do. (She can, however, out walk me on a good day!)

I thought we'd fly in spend three nights and then fly home. That would give us two full days.

I've heard the South Rim is best. Any thoughts on hotels? I think El Tovar is booked. We'd prefer clean and quiet lodging. Cost is not an issue, but no need to be too extravagant!

Thanks for your input as I begin to plan this trip.
