Following 1 night at Yavapai Lodge on 10 Oct, we (family of 4 with 2 boys aged 10 and 6) will drive to Anaheim. This will be via Page (2 nights) and Monument Valley (1 Night), then on to Sedona for 2 nights. We have a spare night before arriving into Anaheim, is it worth staying in Sedona for an extra night, or stopping between Sedona and Anaheim? We aren't into hiking nor overly adverturous but we are active. Like to stop by Joshua Tree NP on the way. We will be in Anaheim for 4 nights so no in a rush to get there for an activity that day.
Is there any benefit/time difference in going from GCNP > Page > MV>Sedona? Or GCNP>MV>Page>Sedona? seems to look similar on the map but we are not familiar with the area..nor familiar with driving in the US.
Finally, in MV - the View hotel or Tipi Village? Thought the kids may like the Tipi but the reviews seem quite mixed. Im also concerned of the temperature at night in mid Oct - Im thinking we could be freezing at night in a tent!!?
