Vegas/Zion/Bryce/GC Spring Break Trip

Jump to last reply

For years we've always vacationed over Spring Break (this year Mar 28 thru Apr 7) at a Beach in Florida, Mexico, or the Caribbean... with only a couple Spring Breaks left before the kids are gone, I'm thinking I'm doing the family a disservice if I don't get them out West to at least experience some of those great parks (I've been to many places but nobody else has).

So I'm wondering... would the Vegas - Zion - Bryce- South Rim Grand Canyon - Hoover Dam - Vegas loop work that time of year... I'm guessing we might run into some snow, but are the parks all at least open? We will be able to see everything, enjoy everything, do some hiking, etc. If the parks are open, do they get busy during Spring Break?

And then, if the trip is possible then, I'd really appreciate any other tips, day trips, lodging tips, etc anyone would want to offer. Since we could have up to 9 or 10 days, and I doubt I need more than a couple at any one place (my wife and I will be traveling with our 3 high school daughters, whose big main concern will be getting back to the hotel so they can get to the pool and their iPhones... and will complain every day about not having sun and sand... sad as that is these days (but they will thank me some day maybe 20 or 30 years from now when they are forcing their own kids to go)), I could have a couple extra days open for other adventures... ie, are there any 1 day Colorado River rafting trips going then, or anything similar that would be fun to do or check out?

Sorry for being lazy, but I trust peoples opinions here better than what I'd find on Google...
