A magnificent natural wonder, the Grand Canyon is 277 miles long and over a mile deep in some sections.

Its width reaches eighteen miles in some places, revealing stunning views of the majestic Colorado River and the characteristic red-rock canyon walls and mesas.

Seeing the Grand Canyon up close and personal is a breathtaking experience not to be missed. Home to the Navajo, Paiute, Hopi, and Hualapai people, the Grand Canyon area is as diverse as its inhabitants.

The Grand Canyon National Park is divided into four major destinations, the South Rim, North Rim, West Canyon, and East Canyon.

South Rim offers the most comfortable access and the best views of the Grand Canyon as well as several lodging and dining options in the Grand Canyon Village.

The most scenic route to the South Rim is via Sedona and Flagstaff on the Interstate 17 and Route 180, and Highway 64. This road offers stunning views of the desert and the colorful rock formations along the way.
