Vegas, Zion, Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, Sequoia - in 9 days?

Jump to last reply

My husband says "let's go to the Grand Canyon" for our 20th anniversary. Well in doing all my research, I learn the location (and existence!) of Sequoia and now I just can't imagine being so close and not seeing the trees...

We fly into Vegas April 10th, arriving at 11:40am. We are to return home April 18th, leaving at 10:55pm. These are the only plans I have set so far. Got airfare from Maryland for $300 a piece.

I've tried to map loops to keep us going in one direction without backtracking and was hoping I could figure 8 these in...

I've even thought about flying into someplace in California and starting there...

My initial plans were touring completely just east of Vegas, but after discovering Sequoia...
Most years we vacation in the Smokey Mountains of Tennessee, so this area seems more like us than the things east of Vegas, but I also know I need to see these places during my life!

Can they be done in 9 days without my entire family (two kids, 11 & 12 and DH) hating me from all the time on the road?

Thank you so much for your time! I look forward to the replies!
