Considered the largest canyon in the world, the Grand Canyon in Arizona spans for 277 miles, is up to 18 miles wide, and towers over 6,000 feet from its floor. Carved by the Colorado River, the canyon is around 5 to 6 million years old. Originally inhabited by Native American tribes like the Pueblo, a majority of the area is contained within Grand Canyon National Park. In fact, the park celebrated its 100th birthday in 2019. The canyon and its South Rim are also housed within the Kaibab National Forest, the Hualapai Indian Reservation, the Havasupai Indian Reservation, and the Navajo Nation. When visiting, guests can enjoy activities such as hiking, camping, white water rafting, visiting museums, and, of course, enjoying the breathtaking scenery. It’s worth at least one visit in your lifetime, so plan your trip today.
