Dubbed, for good reason, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the Grand Canyon evokes both awe and inspiration. Traverse the South Rim, the largest and deepest part of the Canyon, and hike its spectacular natural landscapes, before enjoying some snacks at one of several stopovers along the famed Route 66.
Embark on your adventure with hotel pick-up and then indulge in a nutritious breakfast with breathtaking views. Stop at the historic Hoover Dam, a Great Depression Era-project that drew families west to transform the Colorado River into a hydroelectric power source. On your way to the South Rim, pull over along famed Route 66 for a delicious deli lunch and then proceed to the Grand Canyon Visitor Center.
Stretch your legs along a 2.5-mile (4 km) paved trail from Mather Point to the Grand Canyon Village. Featuring pinyon and juniper pines, epic views of the canyon and the raging Colorado River, this walk warrants several photo stops. Pause – poised with your camera – at the railed lookout of Yavapai Point, then choose to either continue on foot or catch a shuttle-bus ride back to the village.
