The actual Skywalk is an OK thing to do, but the whole Hualapai park is the real reason to come to this location. When we were there in March it was uncrowded, it offers phenomenal views of the canyon, and it is a feasible to do this as a day trip from Las Vegas. In contrast, I think that day trips would be difficult to do from Las Vegas for the North or South rim national parks. On the downside, the area is not very developed, and there are not a lot of amenities there. Unlike the South Rim National Park, there are no railings to keep people from falling over the edge, there are no hotels, there is no hiking from here into the canyon, the dining options are limited, and you need to drive about 20 minutes on a well maintained dirt road to get there. At the park there is a fake Old West town, an airport, several restaurants, and several stores which sell Indian jewelry, art, and t-shirts. The Skywalk itself was worthwhile more for the view of the canyon that you get than the intended thrill you are supposed to get by walking out on a glass floor several thousand feet above the canyon floor. Near the Skywalk you can walk out to a promontory that juts out into the canyon, on a trail that is about 30 feet wide with 1000 foot drop-offs on either side, again with awesome views in different directions. Another feature that I liked is that there were Native American hosts, in native dress, that talked to us about their tribe and how their ancestors lived.
