Step-by-Step Guide on How to Plan a Trip to the Grand Canyon


If you were put in charge of planning everything for your trip to the Grand Canyon, but don’t know where to start, here are some tips that you need to follow:

  • Decide on what to take

If you live out of the state, you need to take a plane going to either Las Vegas or Phoenix Arizona. If you land in Las Vegas, you need to take a 5-hour drive to Grand Canyon. On the other hand, if you fly to Phoenix, you can then take a connecting flight to Flagstaff, Arizona which makes the travel time faster.

  • Decide on what part of Grand Canyon to visit

Due to the massive size of this property, it is impossible to visit all of its attractions in one day. If you only have a day or two to spare, make sure to do your homework to know which one will best suit the needs and interests of you and your family.

  • Decide on what time of year to head out to the Grand Canyon

The months between March and May and September and October are the best times to visit the Grand Canyon. The weather is fine during these times of the year making it possible for visitors to enjoy many activities and check out scenic viewpoints. During winter, the North Rim is closd.

  • Decide on the activities to do

Grand Canyon National Park features a comprehensive list of activities that meed the various needs of its visitors. From nature hikes, trails, white water rafting, to camping, Grand Canyon has everything for all of its guests. For instance, if you love waterfalls, the remote region of Havasupai Indian Reservation has five stunning waterfalls that you can visit, including Havasu Falls- regarded as one of the most epic bodies of water in southwestern United States (and don’t miss Grand canyon Helicopter Tour).
