Need Help Planning National Park Trip (Grand Canyon, Bryce, Zion....)

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend works for an airline and therefore we get free flights (we are so blessed!). We have Thursday, August 16th through Monday, August 20th free to go on a trip and we want to do some sightseeing of some natural wonders!

We are trying to figure out what the best airport to fly in to be able to the most parks with the least amount of driving. We have the option of: Las Vegas, Phoenix or Salt Lake City for airports (anywhere JetBlue flys).

The best option would be to fly into one airport and fly out of another, but unfortunately the cost for oneway car rentals is such that it really isn't worth it.

My boyfriend really wants to see the Grand Canyon (particularly a sunrise/sunset), and I really want to see Bryce (including some star gazing!). We are not hikers although wouldn't mind doing a non-strenuous hike if it meant some incredible views (we are both athletic but due to the heat/elevation and my asthma during the summer months it's not really a great idea). We are in our 20s and trying to save as much money as possible, but wouldn't mind a pricier hotel if it meant convenience.

Anyone who could help us try to figure out the best way to go about this trip, we would be SO thankful. We've thought about doing Vegas to Zion/Bryce, North Rim and back to Vegas or Phoenix to just Grand Canyon and back, but it's hard to figure out with driving times where we should stay overnight and for how long.

Also, we are flying from Boston if that helps! Thank you so much for any advice!!! We'll send you a souvenir/postcard to anyone who gives us a plan that we can work with!!
