The size, shape, and color of Grand Canyon National Park combine to leave an impression on visitors as deep as the canyon itself.
Take a break from the city and head to Grand Canyon South Rim and Bright Angel Trail. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Hermit's Rest and Grand Canyon Railway Depot. There's much more to do: trek along Rim Trail, engage your brain at Yavapai Geology Museum, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, and tour the pleasant surroundings at South Kaibab Trail.
