Go On An Adventure

If you have already decided to visit Las Vegas, you will want to add an interesting side trip to the itinerary. Hosted tours of Grand Canyon areas, such as the South Rim or West Rim should also be on your trip-planning schedule. These two areas are the most popular visited areas. They are also close to Las Vegas, which makes them ideal destinations if you want to break away from gambling for a while.

A Great Value

Tours of Grand Canyon National Park as well as the West Rim give Vegas visitors a chance to hike and see some amazing natural views. All tours stop at Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam for a picture-taking session. Therefore, you can get a lot for your money when you schedule this kind of day trip. In fact, you probably will spend less on the tour than if you stay an extra day in Vegas and gamble.

Choosing A Destination

Taking of one of the hosted tours of Grand Canyon areas from Vegas will get you to your destination in about three or four hours. Expect to get to your planned venue faster by choosing the trip to the West Rim. You will also get to spend more time in this part of the canyon (about four hours). Most people elect to see the South Rim on their first Grand Canyon bus trip. Passengers who choose this part of the canyon spend about three hours in Grand Canyon National Park.

South Rim VS West Rim

If you go to the South Rim, you can find a number of trails that will keep you occupied. You can also stop by some of the buildings featured in Grand Canyon Village. The historic site will take you back in time to the beginning of the 20th century.

If you would prefer to see the West Rim, you will be greeted by the glass Skywalk bridge. This projecting platform allows visitors to see the beauty around them as well as down into the far reaches of the canyon.

Sit Back and Relax

Bus tours of Grand Canyon areas leave Las Vegas early in the morning and return at night. A fully equipped luxury bus will pick you up near or at your hotel. Therefore, you can enjoy some morning solitude, as you travel toward your destination.

Not only can you see some interesting displays and sites, you can also hike or view the unique wildlife. Grand Canyon visitors often catch sightings of coyotes, raptors, such as the red-tailed hawk, and iconic animals, such as big horn sheep.
