We stayed at the Marriott Grand Chateau several times and loved it. This is our top pick for families. Located just one block off the strip, it is a quick walk to the nearby casinos of the Cosmopolitan, Paris, Bellagio, and New York New York. They offer 1, 2, and 3-bedroom villas so there is plenty of space (and privacy) for your family to spread out. The name “Grand Chateau” sounds luxurious, but their prices are very competitive with the hotels right on the Strip. In the past, Tim and I have .....also stayed at Mandalay Bay,the Wynn, and the Venetian, and had great experiences at all of them. Show less

These viewpoints are all located near the Grand Canyon Village. To get between viewpoints, you can either use the Grand Canyon shuttle (the Kaibab Rim Route, orange line) or hike the Rim Trail. During the off-season, it is possible to drive between some of these viewpoints. On Christmas morning, we did not have any problems with parking. However, Yaki Point is only accessible by shuttle or by the Rim Trail. During peak season, it can be very difficult to find parking so the shuttle or walking is your best bet.

Horseshoe Bend is one of the most photographed spots on the Colorado River. For photographers, the best times to visit Horseshoe Bend are at sunrise and sunset. You have the option to do both, since you will be in Page the entire day. We visited Horseshoe Bend at sunrise and sunset. At sunrise, crowds are light and it’s a peaceful place to be. Sunset is a much different experience. It was incredibly crowded and hard to find a spot with a clear view of the river. Even though it can be painful getting .....up before sunrise, for us, it was the better time to be here. However, if you are here just for the thrill of seeing Horseshoe Bend, if you get here in the late afternoon, you should be able to get a good spot to watch the sunset. Getting here: Horseshoe Bend is located a few miles south of the city of Page, on Highway 89. Park in the large parking lot and from here it is a 0.75-mile walk to the viewing location. It costs $10 to park in the parking lot. Read more here.  Show less

Phantom Ranch is a great place to stop and take a break. Ideally, get here by 10 am. We arrived right past 10 am, so it took us 5 hours to hike here from the trailhead. We moved at a fast pace, passing everyone else that we saw on the trail. However, we were most likely the only day hikers. At Phantom Ranch, there is a small restaurant that offers cold drinks, ICE!, snacks, and food. They even have air-conditioning. We sat inside, gulped down glasses of lemonade, reapplied sunscreen, ate some .....food, all in preparation for part 2 of our big day. Pro Travel Tip: The water at Phantom Ranch is chlorinated. It’s safe to drink but it tastes like you are drinking water out of a swimming pool. Consider bringing an electrolyte mix or Gatorade powder to mask the taste of the water. What a difference 30 minutes makes. By the time we hit the trail again, at 10:45, it felt like temperatures skyrocketed. It’s just a short, flat walk through Bright Angel Campground and it felt like it was well over 100 degrees. Just 9.5 miles to go. Show less

When people refer to Antelope Canyon, they are usually referring to Upper Antelope Canyon. This is the more popular of the two slot canyons. With its light beams, falling sands, and very high canyon walls, this is the more photogenic of the two canyons. Upper Antelope Canyon is shaped like an upside-down “V,” narrow at the top and wide at the base. This canyon is wider at the bottom than Lower Antelope Canyon, so it feels less claustrophobic and it’s easier to walk through. The narrow canyon walls at the top .....are what helps create the light beams when the sun is at the right angle. These high, narrow walls also makes the upper canyon darker and feel cooler.

Located on the West Rim of the Grand Canyon, the Skywalk is an easily accessible viewpoint from Las Vegas. It looks and sounds thrilling…a glass walkway perched high above the canyon floor, offering spectacular views of the Grand Canyon. But is the Grand Canyon Skywalk worth it? Not in our opinion. It’s overpriced, it can be crowded, and the views don’t even come close to what you will see later today on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Save your money, and your time, and skip the Skywalk.

It’s also time to go off-the-beaten-path and explore some less crowded but truly amazing places in the American Southwest. Grand Staircase-Escalante National Park is enormous. There are almost 2 million acres of protected land here, and with that comes tons of hiking trails, unpaved roads, and canyons to explore. Since most people gravitate to the more popular parks like Zion, Bryce, and Arches, Grand Staircase-Escalante is pleasantly quiet and uncrowded.

The trailhead is located two miles north of the North Rim Visitor Center and Grand Canyon Lodge. The Grand Canyon Lodge runs a free shuttle service multiple times in the morning to the North Kaibab Trailhead. When we did this, the available times were 3 am, 4 am, 5 am, 5:30 am, 6 am, and 7 am. You can put your name on the list the day before your hike. You will do this at the reception desk at the lodge when you check in. We tried to do it over .....the phone but they wanted to see us in person before they would write our name on the list. In early June, sunrise was at 5 am. We took the 5 am shuttle. It’s just a 5-minute drive to the trailhead. Pro Travel Tip: I recommend starting the hike no later than sunrise. With a headlamp you can start even earlier. During the summer months, you want an early start to beat the heat. The box, a narrow canyon that is 4 miles long, is notorious for being one of the hottest sections of the hike. Try to get through this before 10 am. Show less

There are dozens of viewpoints along the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Each one of these viewpoints offers a spectacular view, but some viewpoints are just better than others. Some offer panoramic vistas, some are less crowded, and some make fantastic sunrise and sunset destinations. There are three sections to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon: Desert View Road, Grand Canyon Village, and Hermit Road. Each of these sections offers a slightly different experience, and if you have the time, it is worth it to spend some time in .....each spot. Here are some photos from our favorite viewpoints.

The most luxurious place to stay during your trip to the Grand Canyon is the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel. It’s located at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon in Williams, Arizona. All packages include transportation to and from the Grand Canyon by the authentic Grand Canyon Railway. This was where we wanted to stay, however, I am a procrastinator and did not book it in time to get a spot. eval(ez_write_tag([[250,250],'dinedreamdiscover_com-large-mobile-banner-1','ezslot_6',110,'0','0']));The ride itself is a Wild West adventure with traditional cowboy music as well as a “real” train robbery reenactment. .....You have not truly lived until a gang of armed 1800s cowboys holds you up at gunpoint. If you travel during the Christmas season you can hitch a ride on the Polar Express and meet the Big Guy himself, Santa. If you are on more of a budget or would enjoy camping, the Grand Canyon Railways offer an RV package. This package includes a train ride too and from the South Rim along with reservations at the Williams, Arizona RV Park. They also have a Pet Resort so you don’t have to worry about your fur babies while day tripping to the Canyon. eval(ez_write_tag([[336,280],'dinedreamdiscover_com-mobile-leaderboard-1','ezslot_19',111,'0','0'])); It is a 2 1/2 hour ride each to the Canyon and depending on when you visit, you can choose your time of departure and return during certain months.

In order to explore the cliff dwellings at Walnut Canyon, you have to walk down a set of stairs almost to the bottom of the canyon where the most of the dwellings are located mid way up the canyon walls. The walk down is scenic with beautiful cactus and other local flora with striking views around Walnut Canyon and surrounding area. Tip – It is easy to walk down the stairs to the ruins, but a real work out getting back up to the visitors center, so do take water, sunscreen and .....other provisions for sun, wind or rain which happens regularly.                           The pathways are paved and skirt through many of the ruins and you can also enter through many of the intact dwellings. There are information displays located throughout the site giving some nice details and stories about the Sinagua people and how they survived the harsh summer and winter climate at Walnut Canyon.     Show less

With a permit, you can camp here overnight, making this the first stop if you are backpacking across the Grand Canyon. From Cottonwood Campground, the trail continues its descent towards the Colorado River. It’s not as steep now, so it’s easier to walk at a faster pace. The views also aren’t quite as spectacular, so we stopped less frequently for photos.

You will descend through the first layers of rock and follow the path along the eastern side of Pipe Creek Canyon. After three thirds of a mile you will be amazed by .....the view and think by yourself “ooh ahh”. That’s exactly the name of this point: Ooh Ahh Point.

While the shuttle is in service, this is the best way to get around.

Start your trip from Williams Deport (Arizona), experience the wild west spirit with a shootout in the outdoor theater before the train leaves for The Historic District of Grand Canyon Villiage.     A lot of visitors stay either at Las Vegas or Flagstaff and make a day trip to The Grand Canyon National Park. I would recommend spending a .....night at the Grand Canyon if you have the luxury of time, if not then a day trip is definitely a great option. There are plenty of accommodation options.

We stayed at The Grand Hotel in Tusayan. It is the highest rated hotel in the area. The hotel looks impressive from the outside and the lobby is very nice but the rooms are nothing special. On Booking.com it is listed as a 5-star hotel but it looks and feels a lot more like a 3 to 4 star hotel. However, the rooms are clean and quiet and fit our needs. The WiFi was a bit slow but that is the norm from what we read for any hotel in .....the area. From Tusayan, it is a 15 minute drive to get to the Grand Canyon Village. There are several restaurants in town. Our favorite spots were Plaza Bonita, the Coronado Room, and Starbucks. Show less

These viewpoints are located across the Desert View Drive, which are more accessible if you come from the east entrance of the park: Desert View, Navajo Point, Lipan Point, Moran Point, and Grandview Point. Of these, the most interesting Grand Canyon viewpoint is Desert View, where we can find a recreation of an Indian stone watchtower, as well as the best views of the Colorado River.

You'll need a permit for all overnight use of the backcountry -- which is to say, anywhere besides the dorms and cabins at Phantom Ranch -- which is one of the first hurdles you'll be clearing as you plan your trip. They can be tough to get, requiring you to apply three months in advance (there's a last-minute walk-in waiting list for backcountry permits, but the parks service warns that could take up to three days of applying in person, so don't chance it) -- this trip is one you .....should really plan at least a year beforehand. Because of the necessity for protecting the rich canyon environment, these permits come with a host of caveats and rules. You can't deviate from the itinerary you've been allowed, because the permits themselves are granted with an eye toward balancing use of various areas within the park. Behind the scenes, park administrators make these decisions based on group size, timing and available resources. There's a lot of work that goes into providing hikers with access to this gorgeous natural wonder, and not all of it is immediately apparent. Show less

The Grand Canyon Shuttle does not travel to these viewpoints so you will need a car. This road is 25 miles long. If you are entering or leaving the Grand Canyon through the east entrance (for example, if you are also visiting Page, Arizona or Monument Valley), you can visit these viewpoints as you drive to/from Grand Canyon Village.

Starting at the North Rim Entrance Road, the paved road to Cape Royal travels through a mixed forest of ponderosa pine, douglas fir and quaking aspen. In autumn—the best time to visit in my opinion—the golden leaves of aspen trees shimmer when the wind blows through the forest adding to the already spectacular scene.

Today, the mansion is run by the Arizona Historical Society. Guided tours of the house are led on the hour and last .....about an hour.

The Grandview Trail is quite strenuous, but since its trailhead is away from the major viewpoints, it’s worth the extra effort. The Grandview Trail has a starting elevation of 2255m and loses 760m over 4.8km. The trail starts with switchbacks until you hit the shaded-and-scenic Coconino Saddle. From there, it’s another 3km to Horseshoe Mesa. Horseshoe Mesa is one of the least known campsites in the Grand Canyon and is a real hidden gem. If you can’t get a campsite for the night, simply cut back the way you came.
