itinerary advice for 10 day sw trip

Jump to last reply

Hi all. Looking for some guidance for my upcoming trip 5/31-6/11 with my soon-to-be husband. We're flying in and out of Vegas and renting a car. probably spend a day or so in Vegas at the end. We're looking at a loop through Zion, Bryce, maybe Capitol Reef, definitely a few days in Moab, through the 4 corners, and Grand Canyon. Problem is that we've never been to the area and we want to see and experience EVERYTHING, but also want to relax and have a good time and not be in the car the whole time. So, I'd love some advice on how much time to spend where, should we head out to Canyon de Chelly,or time in NM? or should we shorten our loop to spend more time in each place?
Also any advice on places to stay, eat, rent jeeps, bikes, rafts, etc are appreciated. We're definitely planning on hiking but my fiance probably won't be happy with super long ones in the heat. Anyone know of places to hang out in rivers, lakes to cool off? We want to do lots of camping but also stay in hotels or cabins a few nights to clean up and relax.
Another question- is there a need to rent a 4 wheel drive to get through some of the parks, or just a regular car?
Thanks or the advice.
