Grand Canyon Holidays

Variously called the 'Greatest Hole on Earth' and 'Mother Nature's Canvas', the Grand Canyon is one of the most visited Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Gaping canyons carved by millions of years of erosion simply don't photograph as well as waterfalls or technicolor coral reefs. Until you descend on one of the well-maintained hiking trails, it ...

still looks like a gigantic painting. The pink and blue and grey and yellow rock on display here is up to two billion years old, half as old as Earth itself. Whether you visit from the easily accessible South Rim or the peaceful North Rim, experiencing the Grand Canyon will be an awe-inspiring experience. UNESCO has designated the entire canyon a World Heritage Site.

Most people visit Sedona in the spring or fall when the weather is at its finest; however, you’ll pay a higher price on your hotel and have to deal with hiking trails clogged with photo-happy visitors. These ... Read more
seasons are better spent in less-crowded Flagstaff, though the weather there can be more variable. Summer is high season in the Grand Canyon, and many people opt to stay in nearby Flagstaff, causing the town to become more crowded during these pleasantly warm months. For the best deals, wait until winter to visit: despite cooler temperatures (and snow in Flagstaff) you’ll score bargains on your hotel; but keep in mind that the Grand Canyon’s North Rim, along with much of the park, closes down after the first snow.

Location
Around 4-5 hours drive from the Las vegas main strip. It depends which side of the canyon you want to go. There are different sights for the place as its spread in a miles and miles.

Experience
WWWOOOOOOOWWWWWW this Is the first word you will say when you will.be at this place its just wow marvelous creativity of the nature, you just get lost in its beauty and the exceptional carving of the nature. There are many spots to click picture so choose whichever is the best for u. Be careful because not all the place have the safety barriers, which is good also so u an have better view but keep always the safety first in your mind. She you are done with the picture session, just sit and observe the place even for 5 minutes but do it, you will find yourself closer to the nature ever.

Service
We were at the north rim so there was a observatory and a sovinier shoot there so u can buy sone stuff to keep as a memory. There was no restaurant anything like that around just keep water with u as you are going to walk around a bit which is worth doing. There is no entrance fee for this place. Other then if you are planning to do the skywalk which I guess is at the south rim.

Hope this will be helpful for you.

What a sight! The views are AMAZING!!
I've been here a few times and each time it's been a new revelation.
In summer, it's hot and there are a ton of people.
In winter, it's cold and a little less peeps.

We hiked down the canyon (in winter) and got a ways down (3 hours in). A ranger was waiting for us and told us if we were camping down at the bottom. We weren't and were advised to start our way up, NOW!! It would be dark if we didn't go up at that point. We appreciated that advice and we got up when it was dark. The hike up was very challenging.It took up over 4 hours. Tired and hungry, that hike was one of the highlight of my life.

Beautiful, Adventure, Stunning!
One of the must visit places anywhere. Go!

Amazing beauty any time of the year. Impressive views and experiences in the middle of nowhere. Sheer cliff edges are troubling though.
