How many nights in Monument Valley/Page?

We are planning our vacation for May with a stop at Zion, Page, Monument Valley and the Grand Canyon. So we are debating do we do 1 or 2 nights in Page OR Monument Valley? We are doing 2 in Zion, 1 at the Grand Canyon right now.

Is there enough to do in Monument Valley for 2 whole days or would Page be better?

Thanks in Advance!

One night is usually sufficient in Monument Valley but depends a bit on how the entire trip nests together.

Have fun.

One night is generally sufficient for Monument Valley. Page needs more if you intend to do anything on the water, be it boating or rafting.

2 nights at Zions is hardly enough. Consider doubling it. Are you visiting Bryce? You need 1-2 nights there. 1 is often enough for the Grand Canyon National Park . 2 is better.

It sounds like you’re trying to do too much in too little time.

1 night Monument Valley.

1 night Page, unless you are doing a water based activity on Lake Powell or the Colorado River. Then you need 2 nights in Page.

Are you intentionally skipping Bryce?

Should we add Bryce but drop Page maybe?

Or do we add an additional night in Zion?

We are going with our 8 and 11 year old and I think they will tire of hiking quickly.

If you are doing this as a loop out of Las Vegas, the usual itinerary is 1 night Grand Canyon, 1 or 2 nights Page, 1 night Bryce and 2 to 3 nights Zion. How much time do you actually have for this trip, including your travel days from home and back?

Hiking isn't a requirement in any of these places.

We fly to Vegas>Zion>Page>Monument Valley> Grand Canyon> Fly out of Phoenix.

We have from May 19th-May 27th. We booked our flights but want to get hotels booked ASAP.

I find I am overwhelmed with information and just don't know what to do!

If the experts tell me 3 nights in Zion then I will do that....

Suggestions welcome

The itinerary Connie describes is that exact trip I took with my parents 8 yrs ago and worked out great. I would recommend the 1/2 day float trip, the dam tour, and Horseshoe Bend when visiting Page.
