Grand Canyon, Sedona from Las Vegas

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be going to Las Vegas in a couple of weeks to visit a relative and want to take a brief trip/detour to the Grand Canyon and/or Sedona. We will have no more than 3 days/nights and we are trying to figure out if we should do just one or the other or whether it is reasonably feasible to do both. We have been to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon but not to the South Rim. We have never been to Sedona.

If we were to try to do both, my thought was to drive from Las Vegas to the GC early (we would be going on a Wednesday and we can get a room reasonably close) , check-in to the hotel and spend the rest of the afternoon and early evening at the Canyon. Check out in the a.m. and leave bags so we can spend the morning and early afternoon on Thursday and then drive to Flagstaff or Sedona. Go to Sedona on Friday and drive back to Vegas on Saturday morning.

Is this too ambitious? It would be nice to see both areas, but I don't want it to be a forced march. We would like to do a little light hiking and I'm sure I will be back to the area sometime.

Thoughts appreciated. :-)
