Grand Canyon, Sedona itinerary help

Jump to last reply

My family of four (all adults) are spending the week in Arizona to visit the Grand Canyon at the end of September. We’ve never been to this area of the country before and are interested in being outdoors, enjoying nature and the local culture. So far:
1. Arrive PHX mid-afternoon on Sunday. Rent car for the week. No hotel reservations for Sunday night. (Stay in Phoenix, drive to Flagstaff, or drive to Jerome?)
2. Have reservations in the GC Park for Monday and Tuesday nights (with plans to hike the rim and eat at El Tovar).
3. Have hotel reservations in Sedona Wednesday and Thursday nights (with plans to hike and maybe do the pink jeep tour).
4. No hotel reservations for Friday night. Can leave PHX Friday or Sat.
I really wanted to include the float trip in Page, but I had to work around hotel availability in the park. Any suggestions for this itinerary? Thanks.
