My wife son and I will be there. Getting in on Thursday night and staying at the Hampton Inn by the stadium. Planning on hitting the Backers party on Saturday night at Cactus Jacks and probably the Backers tailgate on Sunday.
Going to Sedona on Friday.
Sedona is very nice, but if you have never seen the Grand Canyon you might want to drive another 1.5 hours north. It's maybe a 4 hour drive from Phoenix.
Plan on driving back, but if not, you have the money, go buy 3 toothbrushes and paste, and a hairbrush for your wife and a couple bottles of wine. Or tell the crew to pack a light overnight bag, all in one, just in case and spend a extra $150 and spend the night somewhere and drive back to Scottsdale or wherever it is you are staying Saturday morning. Big deal, one night you pay for 2 rooms. Pat and I have done that at least a dozen times over the years.
You don't want to check out and lug you stuff around, and you really planned to go back, but then decide we don't want to make the 2-3-4 hour drive back. It's just money in exchange for unplanned adventure and memories.
I make that exchange every time.
