If you haven't been the Hoover Dam, you should go.

We spent a day hiking in Red Rock Canyon last year. http://www.redrockcanyonlv.org/
Lots of wild ass!

If you do get to Sedona drive a bit south to Jerome. Jerome is a funky little town on a steep hill with lots of little Artisan shops and several great restaurants.

Jerome is cool, kind of quiet though. Tombstone & Bisbee are worth a visit if you can check them out, but I'd spend at least a day there.

Or walk across the border at Yuma to Los Algadones. It's a cool little tourist trap border town.

Sedona is great, but even Flagstaff is a good base point to stay. Go over west to Williams and take the old train up to the Canyon. Can also head east on 40 and see Meteor Crater and the Petrified Forest. Montezuma's Castle also right there between Flag and Sedona. It's a GREAT time of year to come to AZ.

Prescott is kind of nice, can hang on Whiskey Row.

There's literally a bazillion things to see and places to go, depending on what you like and want to do. Let me know if I can help.

Give GC and Sedona a quick drive through. Stay in Payson a couple nights, Mogollon Rim (mogeeyon) is great for hiking, sight seeing, cruising gravel roads, and watching elk. Canyon De Chelly (deshay) is must see, check out Steve's Cafe if still open.

Triple, I rented one of those giant housboats and cruised out into the desert last year. We found a cove where we didn't see anybody else for a day or two. Hiked out of our little cove, fished, swam, campfires, etc. AC and a shower. I actually enjoyed the desert.

Lots of cool stuff in 4 corners. Durango is a cool town. If you go there, you may as well go to Silverton. Especially if you take the narrow gauge train tour. The ruins in New Mexico are also pretty cool.

We were in Las Vegas for a company convention. Arrived early and took a rent car East to Williams Arizona about 200 miles. Checked into a very nice hotel, had a great meal and went to bed early. We got up the next morning about 5:00 am and got on a newly refurbished Antique Train and headed north to the Grand Canyon.

That early in the morning the desert was fantastic. The trip was about 65 miles away. We had a hour peek at the Canyon and had a nice lunch in a very large old log hotel probably built in the 20's or 30's by the CCC. We then went back to the Canyon for another 2 hour look and then that evening back to the train for a ride back to Williams.

That night late we were back in Las Vegas. This is a very, very nice side trip especially for someone who does not

Mom lives in Phoenix. We went for a visit in June and really enjoyed the area, especially Sedona. I could easily see myself retiring there and eating at the Elote Cafe every weekend.
