The Grand Circle in 8 Days

Yes, Virginia, it can be done! My family did the Grand Canyon Circle in 8 days over Spring Break (April 4-11). I knew we would be pushing it, but I figured we’d never be out that... read more

Yes, Virginia, it can be done! My family did the Grand Canyon Circle in 8 days over Spring Break (April 4-11). I knew we would be pushing it, but I figured we’d never be out that way again - at least not for a long time - and wanted to see as much of it as we could with the... More

We travelled with a 12 year old and a toddler. I don't think that the Grand Canyon is for children under the age of 6 or 7. There are guard rails, but not at every stop. Also, not sure that small children can appreciate the stunning views. Truly amazing and a must see on my bucket list.

You have to get into the canyon to truly appreciate it! Take a hike down Bright Angel Trail, where there are restrooms and water every 1.5 miles. The view is out of this world!

My daughter and I visited the South Rim of the Grand Canyon during our recent trip to Las Vegas. We were pleasantly surprised when we found out just how much cooler the temperature was in the canyon as compared to Vegas. The day we went was absolutely beautiful, and as some of the other reviews have said, it truly doesn't... More

Facilities are perfect, restrooms, fresh water pumps, even wildlife walking thru your camp. Everyone should go... More

How can anyone fail to be amazed by the beauty of this incredible canyon? Yes, there are lots of people but it is worth the effort.

Looks like a wallpaper and feels so unrealistic that you have a moment of hesitation at first. If you are in Nevada it is a must do. No words can explain what you may expect.

We never tire of the Grand Canyon. We have been there in all four seasons and in every type of climate imaginable and never tire of its majestic beauty. Truly one of the great wonders of the world.

OMG it's the Grand Canyon, how can you go wrong. It's beautiful, amazing and awe inspiring! If you're coming to AZ you have to make time to see the Grand Canyon. That being said, the Grand Canyon Village is a nightmare. They took a few miles of beautiful land and crammed as many hotels as they could into the spot.... More
