Experience Your Best Grand Canyon Vacation

The Grand Canyon in northern Arizona is one of America's premier tourist destinations. A natural world wonder, the canyon attracts millions of visitors a year, all looking to experience the incredible valleys and cliffs developed over millions of years by the movement of the Colorado River.

There are a large number of attractions available in the Grand Canyon, from the Inner Canyon deep in the interior that's accessed by hiking, mule back or by raft, to the beautiful Havasu Falls on Havasupai Tribe land. Whether you're looking for a hike along beautiful trails or simply want to choose one of the outlooks on the rim and gaze over the canyon's expanse, you won't be disappointed at making the trip. Travel arrangements and lodging can be arranged using Orbitz.com.

Best time to take a trip to Grand Canyon

As with many vacation destinations, the Grand Canyon may be best when visited during the off-season. From October through May the crowds thin out significantly. Snow closes off the canyon during the winter to vehicle traffic, with access limited to hiking or skiing. The trails can be covered with snow or ice, and during the warmer month of April, visitors may experience high winds. If hiking doesn't suit your taste, in October and November you can enjoy the Grand Canyon Celebration of Art on the South Rim, an annual event featuring artists from around the country painting the scenery of the Grand Canyon.
