The size, shape, and color of Grand Canyon National Park combine to leave an impression on visitors as deep as the canyon itself.
Step off the beaten path and head to Bright Angel Point and Moran Point. Step out of Grand Canyon National Park to go to Supai and see Mooney Falls, which is approximately 1h 5 min away. There's much more to do: cruise along Point Imperial Drive, get great views at Lipan Point, explore the stunning scenery at Grand Canyon South Rim, and add some entertainment to your itinerary with Hopi House.
