The size, shape, and color of Grand Canyon National Park combine to leave an impression on visitors as deep as the canyon itself.
Step out of the city life by going to Yavapai Geology Museum and Kolb Studio. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Navajo Bridge and Toroweap Point. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Grand Canyon National Park: Supai (Navajo Falls & Mooney Falls), Vermilion Cliffs National Monument (in Boulder) and Tuba City (Explore Navajo Interactive Museum, Dinosaur Tracks, & more). The adventure continues: cruise along East Rim Drive, get great views at Lipan Point, explore and take pictures at Cape Royal, and delve into the lush surroundings at Kaibab National Forest.
