There’s more to the Grand Canyon than just a big hole in the ground. The Grand Canyon has a fascinating and rich history both geologically and culturally. The best way to appreciate this diverse and surprising national treasure is by taking one of the many Grand Canyon tours available. Here are ten things you won’t want to miss doing while you’re at the Canyon!
Reserved for the true adrenaline junkie, white-water rafting on the Colorado River is a not-to-be-missed thrill. With some of the wildest class-four and class-five rapids on Earth, this is not an adventure for just anyone!
Horseback or burro-back riding
A pleasant, leisurely way to experience the Grand Canyon up close and personal, riding down the side of the Canyon astride a gentle and docile horse or burro really lets you appreciate the sheer size of the Canyon from the inside!
Soaring over the Grand Canyon gives you a unique and majestic perspective on the true scale of this natural wonder, and provides a thrill you just can’t get any other way.
Great for the amateur rockhound or archaeologist, hiking the Grand Canyon is a fun way to see the sights and appreciate the hardiness of the people who’ve lived in this area for over a thousand years. Just remember that the area is protected by national law, and disturbing artifacts or petroglyphs can result in hefty fines and even prison time.
Even if you’re not a diehard adventurer, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the Colorado River and see the Canyon from the inside. Why not take a placid voyage on a pontoon boat and imagine what the first European explorers to penetrate this deep into the American wilderness felt like?
The Grand Canyon Ranch
This historic site has been visited by outlaws, lawmen, and remains a working ranch to this day, and is a great place to stop and visit for the history buff or anyone who ever dreamed of being a cowboy.
Riding along on an ATV is a great way to get around the Canyon and pack a lot of sightseeing into a short amount of time for those who want to get the most out of their day!
Having lunch at the Grand Canyon is a memorable way to spend a day with your family or friends, perched on the Canyon Rim and enjoying barbecue while enjoying the eyecatching vistas!
Why not do something truly unique for your special day and exchange your vows at the Grand Canyon? Surrounded by the natural majesty of the area, it’s a memory you’ll carry with you your entire life.
