Grand Canyon West: A One-Of-A-Kind Venue Not To Be Missed
Who, when visiting or vacationing with us in this Great State of Arizona is not looking for a true “Bucket List” adventure that will excite the senses, and generate memories that will last a lifetime? If you are looking for that unique adventure, then a visit to our very own Grand Canyon West is a must!
Activities at GCW are split between the West Rim of the Grand Canyon and Peach Springs, AZ. There are many exciting sites, views and vistas that you simply cannot find at either the South or North Rims.
For starters, take a walk on the “Skywalk,” which is a glass bridge that is positioned 4,000 feet above the canyon floor. Completed in 2007 at a cost of $30 million, the Skywalk frame was constructed with 100 million pounds of steel and was designed to withstand 100 mph winds. It is a horseshow shaped glass walkway that gives you the feeling that you are walking on air.
If you have always wanted to try white water rafting, you can take a tour with the Hualapai River Runners. If something less active is your thing, then you can also take a boat or a fabulous helicopter tour, or maybe soar over the cliffs on a zip line. There is some much to at this remarkable venue.
Accommodations can be found a few minutes from the Skywalk, in Kingman, Peach Springs or at many more places along route 40 or the legendary Route 66.
Northern Arizona – this drive will be anything but boring. So much to see (history, ruins, route 66) as you enjoy some of the most visually awesome landscapes and vistas you will find anywhere in the country.
Start planning your Grand Canyon West vacation today. We look forward to welcoming you to “One of the Seven Wonders of the World.”
Grand Canyon West is located on the American Reservation and is owned by the Hualapai Tribe. The venue can be reached from Las Vegas (120 miles) or Phoenix (260 miles), and is located about 45 minutes north of Kingman, AZ. From Phoenix, driving northwest, Kingman can be reached by Highway 93, or by Highway 40 from Flagstaff, AZ. Driving from Flagstaff is (210 miles) and from Phoenix the drive is roughly 4 hours and 15 minutes. Trust me when I state that Grand Canyon West is definitely “worth the trip.”
