The size, shape, and color of Grand Canyon National Park combine to leave an impression on visitors as deep as the canyon itself.
On the 28th (Sun), get great views at Mather Point, take in breathtaking views at Inner Canyon, and then get outside with Bar 10 Ranch Activities. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: tour the pleasant surroundings at Bright Angel Trail and then take in breathtaking views at Grand Canyon South Rim.

For other places to visit, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, use the Grand Canyon National Park trip itinerary planner.

Brea to Grand Canyon National Park is an approximately 7.5-hour car ride. You can also do a combination of car and flight.

Mile-High City

Aptly nicknamed the "Mile-High City," Denver sits at an altitude of 1,600 m (5,280 ft) above sea level, located right where the Great Plains give way to the Rocky Mountains.
Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: Colorado Springs (Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Garden of the Gods, &more), Estes Park (Horseback Riding Tours & Off-Road Tours) and Rocky Mountain National Park (Many Parks Curve Overlook & Trail Ridge Road). There's still lots to do: let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, put a fun spin on your tour with Denver Inside and Out, get to know the resident critters at Denver Zoo, and take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens.

For photos, maps, and tourist information, go to the Denver trip itinerary maker app.

Do a combination of bus and flight from Grand Canyon National Park to Denver in 8 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of shuttle and bus. Traveling from Grand Canyon National Park in June, Denver is a bit warmer at night with lows of 55°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 8th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
