Save yourself the trouble of finding parking at the Grand Canyon and take the train to the park. We rode on the Fred Harvey car with the dome view and it was woderful. Very informative conductor, snacks, clean restrooms & lovely company. 4 Stars!

Gift shop, restsurant, wild west enactment/shoot out. This is a government controlled concession, so it is predictable, clean and about 30 minutes of fun before you head to the Grand Canyon. If you are riding the train to the Grand Canyon, you come here to...More

The suitcases that you're taking to the canyon need to be dropped off in the Railway Hotel lobby in the morning. They'll take them all the way to your room at the canyon. Extra luggage will have to stay in your car. You... More
