Little more info please like where will you becoming from, what are your interests, any children and what are your dates?

First thing you need to do is look to see if there is availability at any of the lodges inside the park. There are six lodges inside the park; El Tovar, Kachina, Thunderbird and Bright Angle all sit on the rim. Maswick and Yavapai are set back aways but still within walking distance!

Check www.grandcanyonlodges.com or call them direct if your trip is soon at 303-297-2757. Two night would be good here

A week is too long for the Grand Canyon National Park. Give us more info, including ideas about what you THINK you want to do.

A week is a very long time at the GC. Have you considered visiting Page, AZ or even other national parks/monuments in the area? Check out this article for info on some good locations: nationalparksandmore.com/40-places-to-see-in…

You'll notice several of them are within a reasonable distance from the Grand Canyon. I'd recommend spending only 2-3 days at the GC and then visiting Page or a national park in southern Utah.

Type in a few jumbled words together and expect the guys here to magic up a road trip for you is not going to happen.

C'mon, give us a clue??
