GCNP, Seligman and Sedona in 2 days - ideas?

Hello all, I'm really excited about my upcoming trip to Arizona. Doing Scottsdale and Phoenix on Friday, I'm headed North Sat. morning.

I have a prepaid reservation at the Best Western in Tuyasan for 1 night on Saturday.

My original plan was to spend all Saturday at GCNP and Sunday at Sedona and surrounding areas.

However, I've just discovered this small town I would really like to visit with my son, Route 66, "Cars" type of place, which is Seligman, so my plan will need to be altered a bit.

What do you guys suggest? Should I go straight to the GCNP from Phoenix, spend the whole day there and then on Sunday morning head to Seligman, spend a few hours there and do Sedona after lunch? (I need to be back in Phoenix by 9 PM)

Or should I visit Seligman on Saturday morning, spend a few hours and then go to the GCNP and devote the entire Sunday to Sedona?

Any recommendations (or additional quick stops along the ways) will be greatly appreciated!!

Skip Seligman. It's too far out of the way and your time is too short. Stop in Williams instead. You'll find some of the same RT66 nostalgia there.

Williams to Seligman takes 45 minutes and 45 minutes back of course. Plus the visit.

Your time is very limited as it is. I'd also suggest you go straight north to the GC - except if there's something in PHX you feel you definitely MUST see or do. For Williams rather than Seligman, get off the freeway/highway and drive into the old center.

Make sure you get to spend roughly 24 hours at the GC! Try to be at the rim for either sunrise or sunset, it's a special experience (except under total cloud cover).
