We are traveling from California to Las Vegas but only want to stay there 2 nights and want to explore new and interesting places in Arizona maybe on the way to the Grand Canyon. We have a rental car and have about three days to travel. What would make an interesting trip for us. We are from Minnesota and do not frequent this area. We will be there the week of Feb.15th. Thank you

From Vegas, you pretty much have only one option for hitting the Grand Canyon because the access road to the more remote North Rim is closed for the winter. Not to worry, though, as you can still head over to the South Rim via I-40. I'd spend a night at the canyon, maybe even at the cliff-edge El Tovar if you can find rooms. Or consider hiking down the Bright Angel Trail to camp or overnight at the Bright Angel Lodge (it'll be chilly, though, this time of year). If you have only one day to hike into the canyon, then drop into the canyon on the slightly less-trafficked South Kaibab Trail to Cedar Ridge. Great hike. After the Grand Canyon, make your way south to Sedona and its beautiful red-rock canyons and mystical energy vortices. As an aside, I'd avoid the new skywalk over the Grand Canyon's west rim, as I've heard it's a bit of a mob scene that doesn't do this world wonder justice.
