Itinerary Recommendation - Grand Circle Tour

We live in San Francisco Bay Area, and are thinking of a grand circle tour sometime within one year. It is going to be just my husband and myself for now -- may see if any friend wants to come along (assume no kids).

We can either try to do it around a holiday to save a vacation day (Memorial Day, Independence Day) or not.

1. What time do you recommend visiting?

2. Do you recommend driving from SF, or just flying into Vegas?

3. Which places do you recommend? I know I want to go to Antelope for sure (love the way it looks in pictures). Will want to do Grand Canyon also (considering it is Grand Canyon). Other good ones seem to be Bryce and Zion.

4. How many nights per site do you recommend?

5. Any hotel recommendations?

For Antelope Canyon, every tour is exactly the same, so tour providers don't matter.

Lower AC is below ground level and requires the use of stairway/ladders to enter and exit. Upper AC is further away and involves transport up the wash a couple of miles. The ride can be the roughest part of your day.
