The size, shape, and color of Grand Canyon National Park combine to leave an impression on visitors as deep as the canyon itself.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at East Rim Drive and Hermit Trail. Take a break from the city and head to Grandview Point and Rim Trail. Change things up with these side-trips from Grand Canyon National Park: Mooney Falls (in Supai), Vermillion Cliffs Scenic Highway (in Marble Canyon) and Dinosaur Tracks (in Tuba City). On the 13th (Sat), hike the day away at Bright Angel Trail. There's still lots to do: take in breathtaking views at Grand Canyon South Rim, examine the collection at Kolb Studio, take some stellar pictures from Navajo Point, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Hermit Trail.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Grand Canyon National Park trip planner.

Despite its relatively small size, Sedona overflows with tourist appeal.
Kick off your visit on the 22nd (Mon): trek along Fay Canyon Trail, then hike along Doe Mountain Trail, then hike along Bear Mountain Trail, and finally take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour.
