I always second guess myself on decisions when going to a new place. Having never been anywhere near vegas before is it worth the drive to go to the grand canyon?? In april?? We are in vegas for enough days to go somewhere else. Tentative itinerary is: Get to LV about 5pm on a thursday, will book a hotel through myvegas, not sure what. Have breakfast and go to the pool, c/o 11-12 and then go on to the hoover dam. Do a tour there and drive on to williams or flagstaff, get there about 8ish i would guess. 2nd day have breakfast, go for a short swim, shower then onto the GC. I would rather be there as the sun sets so i was thinking maybe get there around 1-2ish, leave when it gets dark and drive back to the hotel. 3rd day breaky, pool, then onto vegas, checking in around 3, then go drop the car off at the airport and pick up friend that is meeting us there and we will share a cab back, depending on the deal though i might go with the car company at the hotel and drop it off there, have to also see when friends flight gets in, may tell her to take the bus. We are then in vegas from the sunday-friday. I would think that would leave plenty of time to do most of the major stuff. With that much time does that make the grand canyon worth it?? We probably will never get back, just too many places to see. So it would be this time only. I know there are other posts, i have searched them but they aren't quite the same as what i am looking for. I know in some ways it is worth it, the drive is long though, but i guess broken up a bit.
