Land of Hope by Wilfred M. You may also like. Barbara Park Paperback Books. I'm sure everyone could do the Queen's Garden trail. Grand Wash and Capitol Gorge are both easy level hikes. Drive to Moab, Utah and spend nights You can make a day trip down to Canyonlands - Needles District if you have time or you can rent 4 x 4 jeeps in Moab and explore some of the great jeep trails like the Shafer trail. I would try and talk everyone into the Delicate Arch hike. This hike is 3 miles round trip and it's a more difficult hike but well worth it.
If nothing else My youngest did the Delicate Arch hike at the age of 8 without any problems. August will be hot so carry plenty of water and hike early morning or late afternoon. Delicate Arch is best in the evening for lighting. We wife, myself and 2 kids age 7 and 9 just returned from a circumnavigation of the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas toataling 11 days.
We started in Vegas and drove to Williams. We came back the next afternoon and drove to Flagstaff.
In Flag we stayed at the Days Inn for 2 nights, which was fine, but there were some nicer looking properties nearby Radisson. We checked out the Lowell observatory and took a day trip down 89 through the Coconino forest to Sedona. We drove to Page the next day, and again stayed at the Days Inn. We checked out Lake Powell. We didn't get to go to Antelope Canyon, but its looks awesome. There are 2 ways to see Antelope Canyon, one is with a tour, the second is right at the Canyon with an Indian Guide which was cheaper.
In retrospect, I would not have stayed in Page. I would instead do a day trip to Page and continue to the North Rim or Bryce. There are some nice B and B's in Tropic which are reasonable. We were glad that we went to a smaller more intimate place. Bryce could be done in one day, but we took 2 and did the driving tour, some hiking and a morning trip to Cedar Breaks. We drove to Zion and stayed at the Zion Lodge for 2 nights.
The lodge was great because of its location. But the places in Springdale all looked great and were accesible by shuttle. For the most part, we just took our time and enjoyed the scenery.

This forum was great in planning, I am so glad I found it. It will only take you slightly out of your way - really worth it - like being on a different planet! We stopped at Oasis Casino, and had a great cheap meal. Continue your ride to Springdale, you'll be passing through a gorgeous gorge with incredible mountainous scenery.
Don't rush this trip - it's to be cherished. Springdale is a great little town strip. I'd recommend at least 3 nights there. Zion is huge and you really need to do some hikes to see the park. Pick up Frommer's little guide book to Zion and Bryce. Really useful for chosing hikes.
We did Bryce as a day trip from Zion - 2 hours in each direction. You'll love the hoodoos, but watch out for the altitude change. Drink lots of water, and take it slow. We drove back to Springdale before dark, and we were glad to go down to a lower altitude. Bryce is the kind of park you can drive from viewpoint to viewpoint, so technically you can do it in one day. I can't comment on driving to Grand Canyon , because we did that as a seperate trip - took a small plane from LV - then they shuttled us around South Rim. All I know is you'll be a lot closer to the North Rim , which is supposed to be much less commercial and just as nice.
Good luck with your plans, and book early! I recommend Flanigans Inn in Springdale. Write back if you have questions.

We went the opposite way from Vegas , to Bryce , Kanab , Paige, GC, and then back to Vegas - one week and miles on the car - so worth it. Like you, we don't hike, but two of the most memorable things I saw on our trip were Kodachrome Basin and the Pink Sand Dunes. Do a search on google for Southern Utah - there is a fellow who has a website with all types of things to see.
