Surprised that Sedona isn't mentioned there. Maybe because, although people say it's a beautiful place, nobody has a clue what can be done/seen there?
I officially have a day set for Sedona, but I'm starting to think that I will need to make other plans as I have yet to find a reason to visit there..

It is a beautifull and pleasant city. The red rocks are really cool and you can do jeeping with little kids, just pick a company that is not to extreme. For sure you can spend half a day without even trying. There are also some really nice nature walks.

Though on Jan 17-

Pink Jeep tours on the red rocks. Worth every penny! Also there are  many nice hikes around the area, which take in the rocks.

Surely not a first, and you even responded to it  ???

About the wiki, it needs some work. Will update when I get the chance.

How many days?

I was in the Marriott in Flagstaff for 1 night, it was cheap ($60ish) and was very nice. Had a nice view...

I wouldn't recommend if you are looking to stay for a few days, I was just passing thru. I went to the Grand Canyon the following morning.

Sedona is a real nice place if you come there straight from the city, but if you drive through Utah to get there you'l have a hard time figuring out what's so special about SEDONA's red rocks...

I would disagree depending on the age and personality of the children. Some trails are more "extreme" than others and if you ask the company they can recommend a trail for you based on this. Children regularly go on jeep tours. It is safe to say as a Sedona native I went on quite a few.

Point of interest-
It might be a bit of a shlep but one of the best creeks to go is pretty out there(its in the middle of nowhere forests) near Strawberry, Arizona, known as Fossil Creek. That drive is probably itself an adventure and the entire reserve is gorgeous. However I could never go there without hiking the mile or so to the natural hot springs. Best part of the creek! Google for pictures...

See http://www.fossilcreekaz.com/pages/verde.html for info.

How about going with a 3 year old and 15 month old?
