I will be flying to Vegas in September 2016 to meet my travel companion who will already be there for a conference. Vegas is not really my thing, so we will be leaving there to head to the Grand Canyon (which I've never seen) and then to Phoenix to visit some family there. Flying home from Phoenix. This trip could last anywhere from 5-10 days, depending on what we find to do while we are there (we live on the East Coast so don't make it out west often).
Any recommendations for best travel ideas/places to stay/places to eat/things we MUST do along this route? We are used to 4-star or higher accommodations (him with Hilton and myself with Marriott), but are open to all (well, mostly all, lol) suggestions! I figured this group of seasoned travelers was the best place to start!
Thanks in advance!
