Grand Canyon National Park

Grand Canyon National Park ©
The size, shape, and color of Grand Canyon National Park combine to leave an impression on visitors as deep as the canyon itself.
You've added Verkamp's Curios, Canyon Village Marketplace, Hermit Road, and other attractions to your itinerary. Step off the beaten path and head to Indian Garden and Yavapai Geology Museum. Escape the urban bustle at Shoshone Point and Little Colorado River Gorge. Venture out of the city with trips to Mooney Falls (in Supai), Vermillion Cliffs Scenic Highway (in Marble Canyon) and Cameron Trading Post (in Cameron). There's still lots to do: trek along South Kaibab Trail, get great views at Lipan Point, snap pictures at Navajo Bridge, and get to know the fascinating history of Toroweap Point.
