2 day trip

I need advice on how to plan a 2 day trip. Plan to leave from Phoenix on a Friday afternoon and be back in Phoenix on Sunday evening.

We are planning to book

I underatand it is much less crowded and you get the same amazing photos whether you go to Lower Antelope Point or Horseshoe bend. Thoughts???

If we want to do Grand Canyon and Page, what do you recommend doing?

I hear in September or October it is better to do Horseshoe at Sunset.

Does it make sense to stay in Flagstaff Friday night, drive to Page the next day and do Lake Powell Boat ride ( any suggestions) and then do Horseshoe the next day.

Wake up Sunday, drive to Grand Canyon, spend some time there then drive back to Phoenix?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Page is 5 hours from PHX. You really need more time to visit Page and Grand Canyon National Park. Which is your priority?

I thought we could do both, one Saturday and one Sunday. Not possible?

You’re overlooking the 10-15 hours of driving required.
