Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona

Back in the mid 1980's I used to live in Glendale/Peoria Arizona and while I lived in Arizona we took a few trips up to the Grand Canyon National Park.

If you have never visited the Grand Canyon, it is definitely a 'must see' at least once in your life. If you are not a local...I recommend flying into Phoenix, Flagstaff or even into one of the airports in Nevada and then renting a car to travel to the Grand Canyon. It's definitely one place that should be on your travel bucket list.

You will find moderate to expensive lodging accommodations ranging from hotels, motels, lodges, camp grounds, etc. If you are planning any type of trip to the Grand Canyon, I recommend checking out the Grand Canyon Tours, Hotel and Lodging site to help you plan the perfect vacation for you and your family.
When I lived there we took a mule tour down into the bottom of the canyon and it was beautiful. Even now 30+ years later...I remember that mule tour like it was yesterday. (although my bootay was sore for weeks afterwards). If you are physically fit...I recommend doing it, along with some hiking to get the full beautiful effect of the canyons.

Weather any time of the year there can be difficult. I remember hot and sweating days but yet at night...cold and shivering, so make sure you pack your clothing appropriately and always check out the weather forecast before going. When visiting the Grand Canyon in Arizona plan out your trip ahead of time, because there is a lot to see and do and you will want to do as much as you can while you are there.

Not comfortable on touring the canyon by yourself? Well, you're in-luck! Many different companies in the area offer guided tours for those who prefer those. Visiting Grand Canyon National Park is definitely one place in the southwest that should be on every traveler's bucket list.
