Want to make a spectacular understatement? Go ahead and call the Grand Canyon “a great big hole in the ground.” About 277 miles (444 km) long, an average of 10 miles (16 km) wide and more than a mile (1.6 km) deep, the colorful, eroded layers of this northwestern Arizona wonder reveal nothing less than the incredible geological history of the North American continent.

Each year, some 5 million people visit this testament to the power of water over rock, making the Grand Canyon the most popular national park in the U.S. Some arrive on a historic train from the depot in the Old West town of Williams, an hour south, while far more travel here by car.

You can brave the Skywalk, a transparent (and strongly reinforced) walkway that juts out over the West Rim; hike down, around or across the divide (remembering to bring lots of water); or soar high above the whole canyon on a helicopter tour. For the less intrepid, a shuttle tools between the park’s many lookouts, or you can hop onto the saddle of a sure-footed mule. Overnight options range from pup tents to historic lodges, allowing you to take your time exploring one of the most – quite literally – grand attractions in America.

Practical Info

The Grand Canyon covers 1,902 sprawling square miles (4,926 km²). The South Rim is open every day of the year, while the North Rim has a shorter season between May 15 and October 15. Entrance to the park costs $25 per vehicle, or $12 per person if entering by foot, bicycle or motorcycle. Admission is valid for seven days and includes entrance to both the North and South rims. There are hundreds of campsites within the park.
