Las Vegas, Grand Canyon in September

Jump to last reply

Hello all,

We are planning a trip to Las Vegas in September and were thinking of going to canyons(south rim) for a day as well.

We were looking at our options on whether we should:
1. Fly into and out of Las Vegas airport and then drive to canyon, and spend a night there? But this would mean we would have to drive both ways about 3/4 hours for a day's worth of stay in Canyons..I have done this before, when it was just me and my husband..but this time we will be traveling with my parents (who are 60+) and I want to make the trip as comfortable as possible for them.
2. Fly into flagstaff, AZ, and then do a one way car rental to Vegas, and then fly out of Vegas?

Currently the air fare difference is only $34 between the two options, so i am kind off inclined towards the option2, but I am wanted to check if anyone has done this before? and if Flagstaff airport is a good option?

Also how is the weather like at South Rim in Mid-September? Would it be very cold/below freezing?

Thanks
