Why Should You Visit the Grand Canyon?

Grand Canyon National Park is world-famous and a natural wonder of the world for a reason, it’s truly just stunning. Depending on when you go, you can visit the South Rim or the North Rim. You can also fly over the canyon in a helicopter which I haven’t done but would LOVE to. If you want to explore on foot, you can do so easily at the rim overlooks or go on some of the hikes into the canyon. Hopefully my Grand Canyon travel tips will help you plan a trip you love!
