Visiting the Grand Canyon has been on my travel bucket list since I was a little kid and saw the “Grand Canyon or Bust” episode of the Brady Bunch. I’ve been waiting for my kids Nathan and Lucie to get a little bit older. Now that they’re 11 and 8, it seemed like the perfect spring break family trip to drive to Arizona from our home in Colorado.
But I didn’t just want to drive to the Grand Canyon and stay at one of the lodges. No way! Instead, I wanted to experience some of the Old West and take the Grand Canyon Railway to the South Rim. But first I had to plan our trip.
