With sights that are awe-inspiring for both newcomers and repeat visitors, the Grand Canyon is sure to captivate. “Beautiful” doesn’t even begin to describe this landscape. Arizona's Grand Canyon National Park is aptly named for its scenic treasures, carved over millions of years by the Colorado River. A barrier one-mile deep bisects the park and creates the line dividing the North and South Rim. It’s nature’s playground and an adventure-fueled setting with activities that all members of the family can enjoy.
Come here to get acquainted with the flora and fauna of an arid landscape, challenge yourself with an overnight hike, river raft through the mighty Colorado, or simply spend some time taking in the magnificent views. There is so much to do, so much to explore, and with two canyon sides, you’ll have an almost endless list of recreational opportunities. Travel around both the North and South Rim by vehicle or on foot - the choice is yours. Whether you are renting an RV or driving your own, this is your Grand Canyon experience and you won’t want to end your trip without indulging in such natural brilliance.
If you are simply here to take in the views, you can take advantage of the free shuttle service that will drop you off at the many scenic overlooks around the canyon. If you want a longer excursion, consider taking a private guided bus or jeep tour. One of the coolest lookout spots is the Desert View Watchtower, which is an observation deck that has been designed after Ancestral Puebloan towers.
History buffs will want to stop at one of the visitor centers to learn about the cultural history of the area and the geology of the canyon. You can also explore the remains of Ancestral Puebloan village at the Tusayan Ruin or learn about Puebloan Indian life at the Tusayan Museum. For those who want to get up close and personal with the Grand Canyon, you have many options from day hikes and mule rides to backpacking and whitewater rafting trips.
RV camping is one of the best ways to really get immersed in your Arizona surroundings. When you stay in an RV, you take charge of both how you stay and how you go. Here, you’ll find areas to park your RV on both sides of the canyon, including plenty of spots that are a little off the beaten path. No matter what kind of rig gets you there, you’ll be sure to find your perfect piece of the park.
Experience Arizona and the Grand Canyon National Park as it should be experienced. Find the activities that suit your speed and fall into the natural rhythm here. No matter the month, no matter the season… you’ll drive back home with plenty to talk about.
