Making the most of a vegas vacation

Las Vegas is open 24/7. Grand Canyon bus tours from Las Vegas also operate on a continual basis. If you want to escape and see some natural scenery, you will want to add this daytrip to you Vegas itinerary. Would you like to take a short daytrip to Lake Mead and Hoover Dam? Perhaps, you would like to draw out the adventure, and see the Grand Canyon instead. In either case, you will be rewarded with some amazing natural scenery.

Grand Canyon bus tours

The best way to see the Grand Canyon or nearby Hoover Dam is to take one of the Grand Canyon bus tours from Las Vegas. These tours can be booked through a premier tour provider, such as Grand Canyon Destinations. Once you experience the beauty of the Grand Canyon, you will want to book another tour the next time you travel to Vegas. All you need to do is go online and arrange travel. Usually, taking a trip in the middle of the week is best if you want to experience less crowds during the journey.

A bus tour to the South Rim

If you go to the South Rim, you will want to walk or shuttle through Grand Canyon Village, a designated historic landmark district. You can also see the geological exhibits along the Trail of Time, part of the popular Rim Trail. In addition, you may be able to observe the sunset at Mather Point, which was named after the first director of the U.S. National Park Service, Stephen T. Mather was appointed to the post in April 1917.

In fact, Stephen T. Mather lends historical interest to Grand Canyon trips, as he was widely recognized for his work toward preventing exploitation of the national parks. He dedicated himself to this mission after working as a borax mining executive. During his tenure as an executive, he established the copyright for the popular 20-mule-team logo – a logo still seen on boxes of the cleaning product, Borax, today.

A trip to the West Rim

A journey to the West Rim will lead you to Eagle Point, which is home to the magnificent glass Skywalk. View down into the 4,000-foot gorge from the projecting platform. You can also see interesting sites, such as Guano Point, which showcases the remains of a large guano mining operation. Visit Hualapai Ranch, known for cowboy entertainment, or enjoy a repast at the Guano Deli, located on the rim.

Interesting points at the Grand Canyon

Grand Canyon bus tours to the South Rim give visitors unobstructed views of the canyon from such vantage points such as Hopi Point. You can also see some amazing views from sites, such as Mohave Point (also referred to as Sunset Point), Pima Point (which features views of the Colorado River), and Yavapai Point.
