From Los Angeles
Grand Canyon Tours – Grand Canyon winds 227 miles through the Arizona desert, covering such an extensive area that there is no possible way you could visit all the best lookout points and vistas over one three-day weekend. But, that does not mean you shouldn’t try! Each rim of the canyon offers something a little different. The West Rim, operated by the Hualapai Tribe, features the Skywalk Glass Bridge, an observation bridge that juts more than 70 feet over the canyon’s edge. The South Rim, the most popular side of the canyon, is home to the Grand Canyon Historic Village, a tourist area that features lodging, food, and other travel accommodations for visitors. To get a humbling perspective of the immense size of this natural wonder, you should consider taking a helicopter tour that will take you high above the deep ravines carved out by the Colorado River. Many tours that go to the Grand Canyon also make stops at the nearby Hoover Dam, a marvel of human engineering, and in the thrilling city of Las Vegas. 1-Day sightseeing Grand Canyon tours start at $65 per person, while overnight tours start at $168 per person.
From New York
