The Grand Canyon is a national treasure. The park itself has created millions of photographs and memories over the years, and many families vacation there on the South Rim every year. Here are three nearby attractions that your family can enjoy while staying at the Grand Canyon National Park.


Grand Canyon Railway

Whether you are traveling with your partner or with your family, the Grand Canyon Railway will be the ride of a lifetime. In the spirit of a classic passenger train (which many of us do not see these days), visitors can dine, ride, and enjoy special events along the way.


The Hoover Dam

The Hoover Dam is just a day trip away from the Grand Canyon. Another historical landmark, the Hoover Dam is sure a sight to behold: it was built in all its greatness in 1928 and its size and strength continues to wow visitors.


Grand Canyon Helicopter Tours

From Las Vegas, visitors can board a helicopter to get a majestic bird’s eye view of the Grand Canyon, the Colorado River, and the man-made wonder of Las Vegas. This, in particular, is a great day trip for a quick city get away from your campsite.

The Grand Canyon itself is a wonder. It has dazzled families for many years. Now you can take a plane, a train, or a car and witness the wonder of this area: a true work of art.
