About the Park
Visiting the Grand Canyon is a breathtaking and unforgettable experience. This landscape is carved by the waters of the Colorado River, and there’s just something about being there to see it with your own eyes that blows all the photographs you’ve seen (and we’ve all seen them!) away. Make time for both sunset and sunrise viewings, and a hike based on your family’s skill levels.
Pro tip: scout your preferred sunrise viewing location the day or evening before. It’s a popular way for visitors to enjoy the Grand Canyon, and you’ll want to get there early. Bring a blanket to sit on, pack a thermos of coffee, and dress in layers as the early morning temps can be cool.
If your plans include hiking, you’ll have loads of opportunities that range from “breathtaking” in a visually stunning sense of the word to “breathtaking” in an increased-heart rate sense of the word. You’ll find easy strolls that are family-friendly to rigorous trails that will get your blood pumping. Remember to bring water bottles – between the elevation at the highest points to the descent of your hike, you’ll definitely want to stay hydrated.
