Grand Canyon National Park
Measuring over 270 miles long, up to 18 miles wide and approximately a mile deep, Grand Canyon National Park features some of the biggest and most spectacular canyons on our planet. This incredible feat of nature was created over the course of millions of years as the Colorado River began to form channels through vast existing layers of rock. Most visitors to the Grand Canyon stay in Las Vegas, arriving to the park’s West Rim by light aircraft, flying across Lake Mead and Hoover Dam on route. West Rim excursions include a trip to the Hualapai reservation, a helicopter flight through canyon gorges followed by a scenic riverboat ride along the Colorado River. The West Rim is also home to the famous horseshoe shaped Grand Canyon Skywalk. This curved pedestrian cantilever bridge juts out over the cliff’s edge and extends for 70 feet. As you walk along the reinforced glass platform, you feel like you’re walking on air, that is until you glimpse the sheer 720 foot drop beneath you! Grand Canyon Skywalk is a superb place for photography and makes a spectacular wedding venue for nature lovers.
