Grand Canyon Introduction

Layers of red and orange rocks span the horizon for miles at the Grand Canyon, interrupted only by pops of bright blue where the Colorado River carves through the floor. The landmark is famous worldwide, and the national park here draws millions of visitors each year who come to watch the vibrant sunrises and sunsets painting the sky, ride donkeys down to the canyon floor, and participate in thrilling activities like helicopter rides, river rafting, and epic hikes.

Hotels in Grand Canyon

From classic lodges steps from canyon views to convenient chain motels dishing out free breakfasts, Grand Canyon hotels suit every need and price point. Lodges inside and outside the park set the scene with their woodsy decor, crackling lobby fireplaces, and on-site dining rooms. Cheap Grand Canyon hotel deals are more often found in nearby towns, where budget-friendly properties cater to families with their spacious rooms and suites and indoor pools. Summer is the busy season at the national park and hotels fill up fast, so book early to ensure the best prices and availability.

Where to stay

Grand Canyon Village at the South Rim is the closest place you can stay to the attraction, located within national park grounds with its own grocery store, post office, restaurants, and a small selection of lodgings. Staying here means you won't have to worry about parking during the busy season, since you can use free buses. South of the park entrance, the small town of Tusayan is on the shuttle route, too, and offers more dining and chain hotel options. Williams, about an hour away, is popular for its touristy downtown with a distinct Western feel and train rides to the Grand Canyon.

Things to see

At 277-miles long and 18-miles wide, the Grand Canyon is a massive destination, with tons of options for views, hikes, and more. The most popular attractions and activities are along the South Rim, where you can take in sweeping vistas from more than a dozen lookouts, like Hopi Point, famous for its sunsets. The Trail of Time is a great place to start, with a 1.5-mile path along the rim filled with geological exhibits and canyon views. When you're ready to explore further, head to the Bright Angel or South Kaibab trail to trek toward the floor of the canyon or test out portions of the nearly 13-mile-long Rim Trail on foot or bike. The Grand Canyon North Rim is only open about 5 months a year during the warmer season but is less crowded and has its own visitor center and trails.

How to get to Grand Canyon

Road tripping to the Grand Canyon is a classic American vacation and offers the most breathtaking approach to the national park. Stretches of the old Route 66 run south of the landmark and are full of retro vibes and Western-style towns. The nearest airport is in Flagstaff, about 80 miles from the South Rim, but for more flight options look to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport or McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, each about a 4-hour drive away. Once here, free shuttles help you get around since parking can be tight at popular spots during the busy summer season.
