Visiting the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas
By Natalie Grant, USA, September 2012
Downtown Las Vegas is an apex of fun, entertainment, performance and luxury. The Grand Canyon, isolated and peaceful, is one of the planet’s most incredible creations. The truth is, it is indeed possible to combine the trips—if you plan ahead. You may not get as full of an impression if you have limited time, but at least you’ll be able to experience the ultimate playgrounds of both man and nature!
Fortunately, tour companies have caught on to the fact that, other than Phoenix, Vegas is as close to the Canyon’s South Rim as big cities get. It’s generally very easy to find a way to get there, and options are plentiful, so you can accommodate your specific desire for recreational activity or time restrictions.
