LV-Zion-Bryce-GC trip: itenerary help

Jump to last reply

We are trying to plan a 8-day vacation in early October. Days and dates are slightly flexible. We are two adults, 3 children ages 6-10, easy, seasoned travelers. Would like to take the kids to the Grand Canyon and get a good experience out of it, so we are considering the following driving tour. Please help me tweak this itinerary.

Flying in and out of Las Vegas (great deal on flights, have voucher for free rooms there)
Day 1 - travel day, spend night in LV
Day 2 - Leave LV, head to Hoover Dam for lunch, keep driving to Grand Canyon to spend the night.
Day 3 - Grand Canyon, take tour there, spend night there.
Day 4 - Head through Monument Valley, through Cortez/Mesa Verde, spend night in Canyonland. Stop off in each location to enjoy approx 2 hour visit.
Day 5 - Drive through Moab (stop for visit there), head to Capitol Reef, spend night.
Day 6 - Spend day in Zion, head to Bryce
Day 7 - Spend day in Bryce, return to LV to spend night
Day 8 - Fly home from LV

Where do we need more/less time? Is there a place we can cut out of the trip completely? I know we could spend 2-3 days in some of these locations, but for this trip, we just want to get a good overview. Can you help?
