The Grand Canyon is such an incredible destination, and it should be on your must-see list for one of your family vacations. This massive canyon contains many unique sights, as well as activities and adventures your entire family will love!
The South Rim is the end of the Grand Canyon that most people choose to spend the most time at. The main reason for that is there is so much more to do at that end. However, if you have the time, I recommend seeing the North Rim, too, so you can make some comparisons.
This village is the most popular entryway of the Grand Canyon, so expect crowds when you arrive. When you are here, you can spend time at the Grand Canyon Railway Depot, shop at the Hopi House for souvenirs, and take in the views from Yavapai Point.
If you love to hike, then the Bright Angel Trail is going to be one of your best options. This trail is six miles each way, and you should spend the night at Phantom Ranch if you tackle this journey. This will ensure you do not need to rush and do the twelve-mile round trip in one day. If you do not want to hike this trail, you can always choose to ride a mule for a unique experience.
Not everyone wants to spend hours hiking, and this is where the Rim Trail can come in handy. This is an easy walking trail, although it does stretch for twelve miles if you want to keep on going. The good news is you can always climb onto the shuttle bus that passes by the trail numerous times throughout the day.
You may not think that the southwest and waterfalls go together, but there are waterfalls within the Grand Canyon. Havasu Falls is one of the best and you will find it at the Havasupai Indian Reservation. You must hike approximately ten miles to reach this waterfall. So be prepared to spend a couple of days hiking to and from while also camping out overnight.
The Grand Canyon Skywalk is a bridge that has glass floors. This skywalk is seventy feet out over the canyon. When you get out there, you will be four thousand feet above the canyon floor. The location of this skywalk is quite far from the rest of the popular attractions, so you must take that into account as you are planning your Grand Canyon vacation.
These are six of the must-see sights at the Grand Canyon, but there are others that you may love even more. If you are unsure of how you can fit all these incredible views into your visit, I recommend taking one of the many different helicopter tours. This will allow you to see so much more, including sights that you may have never seen from the ground.
