We will be traveling to the southern rim the last week of March with our 14year old. We planned a jeep ride and short hikes. What else should we be sure to do in that area?
There's a cool aviation museum in Valle as you're headed to the canyon. You can't miss it when you turn north as the highways merge. Otherwise, short hikes, jeeps ... you have it pretty well covered. If you want to do something on the way up and can stop for awhile in Flagstaff, I love the Lava River Cave. Bring headlamps and something warm to wear. And extra batteries and flashlights, too.
