The town boasts many inns, motels, restaurants, and shops, although its most important feature is serving as the southern terminus of a scenic railway leading to the area's most famous tourist attraction, the World Heritage-listed Grand Canyon.
On the 11th (Fri), see exotic creatures in open habitats at Bearizona Wildlife Park, explore the stunning scenery at Sycamore Canyon, and then pause for some serene contemplation at St Joseph Catholic Church.
