With theme parks cropping up left and right, it’s time to get back to nature for your next family vacation and make the trek out to the Grand Canyon. It has long been a quick stop on the cross-country road trip or a fly-over zone for Vegas helicopter rides, but the natural wonder has so much more to offer.
Why not stay longer and see every side of the Grand Canyon, from West Rim to South? There are cabins, camping and hotels all within a rock’s throw of this fissure in the Colorado Plateau. Native Americans, Spanish explorers and American explorers all set their sights on this desert land. The unique plants, animals, and fossils are what make this place a world wonder, and it is a great place to spend some serious time.
Aside from casual sightseeing at the South Rim (averaging 7,000 feet [2,100 m] above sea level), rafting, hiking, running, and helicopter tours are popular. The floor of the valley is accessible by foot, mule back, or by boat or raft from upriver. The Hualapai Tribe opened the glass-bottomed Grand Canyon Skywalk on their property, Grand Canyon West. Only on the Skywalk can you stare down into the heart of the canyon.
Another great option is the Grand Canyon Railway. A trip on the train is a perfect family friendly way to entertain young kids and see awe-inspiring sights at the same time. This incredible backdrop is all you need for a nature-inspired vacation everyone will love.
