Grand Canyon Arizona USA Information
Vast, magnificent and inarguably beautiful, the Grand Canyon is easily Arizona’s most distinguishable landmark – and a natural wonder that you simply have to see to believe. The Grand Canyon will take your breath away. Stretching 277 miles from end to end, steep, rocky walls descend more than a mile to the canyon’s floor, where the wild Colorado River traces a swift course southwest. Whether you stop at the canyon for an hour or stay for a week, you’ll have plenty of ways to enjoy some adventure, recreation or just great views.

The easiest way to reach The Grand Canyon National Park is from main entrances on the South Rim – including the South Rim’s eastern entrance – and the North Rim. Due to its proximity to Flagstaff and Williams, the South Rim is the Grand Canyon’s most popular destination.


The most popular entrance is on the South Rim arriving on Arizona Highway 64 from I-40 at the Williams exit. The Grand Canyon is about a one hour drive from Williams, Arizona . Tusayan is a commercial tourist center just before you get to The Grand Canyon.

At the south rim the mule train rides from Grand Canyon Village down the Bright Angel Trail are a Grand Canyon tradition. You can also hope aboard a state-of-the-art helicopter for the ride of your life. Soar above the canyon and take in the sights, from rocky juts to colorful layers of sediment.

The beauty of the Grand Canyon, one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World, is like nothing else you will ever experience. Each season of the year provides a unique vista.
