Sacramento to Grand Canyon - travel and activities

Jump to last reply

Hi, my boyfriend and I are planning a road trip from Sacramento to Grand Canyon for the end of June, or July. We'll rent a car and we plan on camping along the way and getting hotels when we can. We plan on going to Las Vegas, Bryce, Zion, Lake Powell and Arches maybe... not sure where else just yet! It's all up in the air =)

1. Do you see any problems for us finding camping sites and hotels without reservations? Cheapest with good quality is best. Any places you recommend?

2. What are stops you recommend along the way? Eating locations as well?

3. Hwy 99 looks boring, but Hwy 395 goes through Yosemite (yay!), and Death Valley! Is it worth it to cut across Death Valley? I'm worried about the heat. Otherwise we can take 395 and go around Death Valley.

4. We can hike, but I prefer easier hikes, with low elevation and not too long. Do you have any trails you would recommend for us?

Thanks for your help!
