The Grand Canyon lies in Arizona and is a “must see” natural world wonder. This magnificent rock formation was carved out over millions of years by the 277 mile long Colorado River running through it. The different colours, shapes and size of the canyon is a humbling experience to visit in person. Away from the noise and crowds of the Las Vegas Strip is a huge contrast to the peace you will find here.
Ground Canyon by Car
Distance from the Strip is 272 miles, about 4 1/2 hours drive. If you have a rental car you may consider staying over night at one the local hotels, it is a long drive and it worthwhile staying to see the beautiful sunset and sunrise. Alternatively there are many organised coach tours with optional overnight stay.
The quickest way to enjoy the Grand Canyon is by air. There are numerous helicopter and small aircraft flights throughout the day.
