The next day we got up early to drive to the Grand Canyon. It’s about a 2 1/2 hour drive from Sedona to the park’s East entrance.
We were so glad we read reviews about arriving at the East entrance. We did not have a wait to get in and were able to drive across the entire park enjoying each view point. As we exited the South entrance, we saw a line of cars about an hour wait long. Trust me, the South entrance is not even a better view, just more crowded.
