Day Trips from Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon as a whole is located in a rather remote part of northern Arizona, and the surrounding areas of interest to tourists are not limited to the Rims of the canyon alone. It's important to understand the massive swath of land that is Grand Canyon National Park and the surrounding plateau; visitors' should expect to do at least 2–8 hours of driving round-trip their from departure point to the most popular Grand Canyon destinations. Look for lodging in areas inside and outside of the park, radiating outward in towns like Tusayan, Williams, Flagstaff, Sedona, Las Vegas and Scottsdale. Most tours disembark from these cities, too, and offer pick-up from area hotels and lodging. Visitors greatly benefit from the outlying areas' additional attractions, restaurants, services, nightlife and entertainment. Familiarize yourself with the small towns like Williams and Tusayan and medium-to-large cities like Las Vegas, Sedona and Flagstaff, and all they have to offer.
