hi, we are looking at at a week in april for 2 adults, 1 kid of 5 yrs. there is many hotels to choose from, but do you think i am making a right decision in taking a child. it is my 40th birthday and i have always wanted to see the sights and to say i have been. i am not a gambler . how far is grand canyon and where is there to stay. also california, is it possible to get there too.
