Sedona, AZ and the Grand Canyon- itinerary


Sedona, AZ and the Grand Canyon- itinerary


Sedona, AZ is one of the most beautiful places I’ve experienced.  The glow of the red rocks at sunset, the easy accessibility of fantastic hiking and biking trails, petroglyphs, ancient Indian cliff dwellings, and the nice weather make this a great family destination. The best time to visit Sedona is from March to May before it gets too blazing hot.  September to November is also milder.

When planning this trip, I looked for the best "bang for your buck" easy hikes that we could do with our young children.  I've included the best of these hikes along with our favorite lodging choices and additional listings that looked nice and were well located. The itinerary also includes recommended stops on the way to the Grand Canyon and details for making the most of your time at the Grand Canyon National Park. This trip itinerary was one of my family's favorites. This is a one week itinerary with 1-2 nights at the Grand Canyon National Park.
