There’s truly no other place like the Grand Canyon. In this article, I’ll list the best things to see and do at the Grand Canyon for all types of travelers.
I was lucky enough to live at the Grand Canyon for four months and had the chance to explore so much of its beauty. Even now, as I live just a few hours away from it, I never run out of things to do in the Grand Canyon whenever I’m able to return. This is one of my favorite destinations in the USA.
Whether it’s hiking the rugged red dirt trails, catching the purple and pink sunsets, riding a mule, or learning about the history of the canyon at a museum, the options of things to do and places to visit in the Grand Canyon are endless. Even better, there are activities for families, couples, or outdoor enthusiasts. There’s something for every kind of visitor.
There are four different areas you can visit; the North, South, East, and West Rims. The South Rim is the most popular area to visit as it offers the most in terms of things to do, but you can’t go wrong with any area you choose to spend time in.
