Grand Canyon (Arizona)


Visiting the Grand Canyon could be a weeklong adventure. Families can camp on both the Northern and Southern Rim, and at the canyon floor. A skywalk allows visitors to walk out an astonishing 3,600 feet above the bottom of the canyon. Besides the miles of hiking trails on offer, visitors can also ride donkeys to the canyon floor, take helicopter tours, and go whitewater rafting.

Visit the Grand Canyon homepage.
