Whether you're on a family vacation or with a group, the Grand Canyon's magical views, and numerous recreational activities will make your vacation unforgettable.
Situated just 60 miles from the South Rim, lies the town of Williams. It is called the Gateway to the Grand Canyon. It is here where the allure of the American West and Route 66 meet. Visitors looking to interact with wildlife can visit Bearizona. It is a drive-thru wildlife park where visitors can spot black bears, mountain goats, big horn sheep, and bison.
Another way to view the area is with the Grand Canyon Railway. Visitors can choose from a variety of tours that include the South Rim to overnight trips.
