The size, shape, and color of Grand Canyon National Park combine to leave an impression on visitors as deep as the canyon itself.
Go for a jaunt from Grand Canyon National Park to Los Angeles to see Food Tours about 1h 20 min away. On the 21st (Sat), hike the day away at Bright Angel Trail. There's still lots to do: take in breathtaking views at Grand Canyon South Rim, make a trip to Grand Canyon Village, get great views at Lipan Point, and appreciate the history behind Powell Point.
