Are you planning a trip to America’s #1 attraction? Yep, if you’re planning a trip to the Grand Canyon, there’s a few things you should consider before doing so. So here are some things you should consider before planning a trip to one of the seven natural wonders of the world:
Avoid the summer season: In the summer time it gets way too crowded and hot, and you will be paying more for services as the demand is at its peak.
Consider going in the winter: Winter time is a lot less crowded, and the air is a lot less cooler, and it will be lighter on your wallet.
South Rim is Best: The south rim is more accessible and has more amenities and is best especially if you have small children. The North Rim is not accessible from mid-October to mid-May.
Airports: You can fly into Las Vegas, Phoenix, Flagstaff, and the Grand Canyon Airport .
Explore the inner canyon: Don’t just drive around the canyon, and explore, get into its depths for a full sublime, in awe experience. You don’t have to go on long hikes to get this experience, you can get in quick short hikes that’ll blow your mind just as much, like the 3 mile (round trip) Kaibab Trail to Cedar Ridge. You can also explore Skeltal point (6 miles total) or Grandview Trail (2.5 miles total), but a more rugged terrain.
Take Highway 89: If you’re coming from Flagstaff, Arizona, you’ll be tempted to take highway 180 north, but Highway 89 is a less used alternative, and one that will help you stop along the way at viewpoints overlooking the Colorado River Gorge as well as exploring Grandview point along the east rim.
