Edens Family Trip Plans May, 2017

Depart Searcy on Friday, May 19, 2017 and drive to Bryce Canyon, Utah.

Bryce Canyon!

Check in to Ruby's Inn, which is a Best Western hotel on Sunday, May 21 and depart on Tuesday, May 23.

Hotel room with 2 queen beds for Ruby's Inn is $435 plus tax for the stay.

There are guided ATV tours, horseback riding, mountain bike rentals and hiking available through Ruby's Inn.

You will be staying approximately 5 miles from Bryce Canyon National Park. This area is widely known for spectacular sunrises and sunsets!

Depart Ruby's Inn on Tuesday morning, May 23 and drive to Williams, AZ. This should take approximately 5 1/2 hours.

Check in to the Grand Canyon Railway and Hotel!

And now you have options! There are two packages available that include hotel stay, train rides, some meals and a tour! You select the one that sounds best for you and your family!

Package 1 includes 3 night total stay- Two of the nights are within the Grand Canyon at Maswik Lodge!
Package 2 includes a 3 night total stay- One of the nights spent within the Grand Canyon at Maswik Lodge!

Here is a park map that shows where the train arrives in relation to the rest of the park. Everything is centrally located!

Here is a picture I took when I was at the park two years ago. There is amazing photography available for wildlife!

The nice thing about staying in the park is the opportunity to see the canyon at various times of the day!

Here is one of the many stops you'll have while visiting the Grand Canyon Visitor Center area. There are plenty of places to snap gorgeous photos.

Sunset at the Grand Canyon

The family will love this and so will you!

The only thing missing from this photo is the Edens family!

This is a basic trip plan. I've shown the prices for hotels in Bryce Canyon, UT as well as Williams, AZ. I was able to get you a hotel within the Grand Canyon National Park. It is not fancy in any way, but it is super cool to be able to stay in the park itself! You mentioned the budget was between $2,000 - $2,500. Although I did not price gasoline and all your food, I believe you will be able to stay within budget with this basic plan. If you decide to go with this plan, we need to book quickly because the train and hotel is already booking up for the summer season.
