Heading west for a family adventure to check off the bucket list this summer? If the Grand Canyon is in your plans, we have three amazing adventures that your whole family will love and are sure to create memories that will last a lifetime:
1. Go on a Jeep tour
Hop in a pink Jeep for a Grand Canyon Desert View Tour. Local, certified tour guides will share their first-hand experience and take you to hidden gems. At 7,500 feet in elevation, you’ll be at the highest point on the South Rim. Go at sunrise and see light glowing over the sweeping vistas. Go at sunset and watch as the sun descends behind the cliffs and the desert begins to glow.
Plus, the price includes Grand Canyon National Park admission fees and free tickets to the IMAX movie, Grand Canyon: The Hidden Secrets.
Best part: We've got a deal that will save you money!
2. Take a step out ... and look 4,000 feet down
Unparalleled views of one of the world’s Seven Natural Wonders await you at Grand Canyon West on Skywalk. This horseshoe-shaped glass bridge extends 70 feet out over the rim of the Grand Canyon, giving you a clear view 4,000 feet to the Canyon floor below. Heart in your throat yet? There’s simply no thrill like stepping out on glass thousands of feet in the air ... it's a photo-friendly thrill you'll never forget.

3. Get your kicks on Route 66
After departing the Phoenix metro area, the Grand Canyon South Rim Tour travels through the expansive Sonoran Desert filled with the native saguaro cactus. You'll stop in Williams to experience Route 66, the iconic American highway steeped in rich tradition. While in Williams, guests will have the opportunity to “get their kicks on Route 66” with walks along the original route, explore the local shops and capture souvenir photos highlighting a bygone era in classic American history. Then it's on to the Grand Canyon where you’ll experience about three hours within the National Park marveling at its beauty. You will have opportunities to walk the rim, shop, capture an unlimited number of photographs, or enjoy your lunch and relax ... with the best seat in the house.
