Let me know if you want to meet up -- we'll be around.

Grand Canyon is about a 4 hour drive each way. Usually a bit better if you do it as an overnight. Drive up through Sedona, get to the Canyon by mid afternoon, stay for sunset. Grab a hotel in Tusayan. Next day, drive along the Canyon to her east, coming out near Cameron (stop at the trading post and grab an authentic Navajo lunch). Then head back to Phoenix via Flagstaff (a bit over 3 hours from Cameron)

As for things in Phoenix... there's the Desert Botanical Garden. Lots of places for hikes (Piestewa Peak, Camelback, Pinnacle Peak)...

Unfortunately, all the car events are in Jan -- auction week is the 3rd week of the month.
