What an amazing natural wonder of the world! Family trip to the Grand Canyon, no shortage of things to do and see. Did some hiking. Great presentation by the Park Ranger. So much history to learn about. But it was so crazy hot in June,...More
Truly one of the greatest landscapes I’ve ever beheld. Having driven 4.5 hours to escape LV, we bypassed the “West GC” and carried on for another 3 hours. This really is worth every second more of driving through the desert (we did hire a 5.0L...More
Their really is only one word to describe this experience- awesome. My wife and I were on our way to the Spring Mountain Motor Resort and decided to take a little detour and see the south rim - glad we did. I wish we had...More
My wife and I went to Las Vegas and my wife has never seen the Grand Canyon. We took a nice bus ride from Las Vegas that picks you up at your hotel. It is nice because it is a great day trip. The Canyon...More
The views were spectacular!! It was extremely scary though because 90% of the paths are right next to the ledge of the canyon without rails...(understandably because the canyon is huge!) Having the kids walk so close to the edge was frightening..Watch your kids close! (some...More

The Grand Canyon is a national treasure. The landscape is just incredible; it leaves you speechless. The rim trail has amazing views! I also enjoyed the film in the visitors center that gave more history on the canyon. I'd recommend trying to visit during the...More

Thank you! How were the roads ? I'm from south and dread driving in snow and ice. Is it icy Do we need special tires? I have a very tight schedule and can't afford to lose a day if there are road closures. What is approximate time to head back to page, since i've read driving at night is not recommended. Is day trip doable from Page, i've no options, since we booked hotels

If there is a new moon or a small cresent moon, It will be dark. VERY dark. Just drive carefully and cautiously, and have a well planned route that you have familiarized yourself with. The desert is a bizarre place at night... More
If there is a new moon or a small cresent moon, It will be dark. VERY dark. Just drive carefully and cautiously, and have a well planned route that you have familiarized yourself with. The desert is a bizarre place at night, and tumbleweeds can scare the crap out of you if they blow across the road at night. Just keep your eyes open and drive safe. If at all, try to leave the area while there is still some light. The curves in the road can come up pretty fast on ya. Safe travels!
