The Grand Canyon—the most inspiring natural feature on Earth. A single visit can be life-changing. Grand Canyon National Park is the nation's most popular national park with 5 million visitors annually. Located entirely in northern Arizona, the park encompasses 277 miles of the Colorado River and adjacent uplands. One of the most spectacular examples of erosion anywhere in the world, the Grand Canyon is unmatched in the incomparable vistas it offers from the rims. Grand Canyon National Park is a World Heritage Site.
Central Arizona, also known as Redrock Country, sits on the edge of the Colorado Plateau. This area which includes Sedona is known worldwide for its natural beauty and ancient Native American ruins. The many buttes, canyons and waterways provided ideal habitat for Native Americans in which to live and is why many ancient sites can be found extensively throughout this area.
Finally, there is more to Nevada than Las Vegas. The Valley of Fire State Park sits just 45 minutes from Las Vegas but is worlds away in terms of scenery, definately worth a visit on your next trip to Sin City.
