Grand Canyon visit + where else???

I plan to visit the Grand Canyon from the UK, in September/October but want to go somewhere else to make a full vacation of it (not Las Vegas) two weeks in all. Where else we visit will determine the arrival/departure airports. Interested in scenery, history, a bit of walking, weird stuff, Native American culture and hopefully a rodeo. Oh, and shopping.

A train ride would be nice but we will hire a car, though don't much want to spend too many days on the road. Round trip from Denver, via Colorado Springs maybe? How much longer would it take to get down to the South Rim coming from the north?
