(2) Grand Canyon Skywalk
The laws of physics in old cartoons state that someone can walk over the edge of a cliff without falling, as long as they don’t look down. That’s kind of what the Grand Canyon Skywalk is about; except when you look down, you still don’t fall. It’s a glass floor that separates you from the bottom of the canyon – 800 feet below.

(5) Rock Climbing
If you’re a climbing enthusiast, there is an abundance of locations for your ascending pleasure. Whether you like to be attached to a rope or you prefer to push the safety boundaries without one, you’ll be sure to find a rock face to suit your needs.
