Located in northern Arizona, the Grand Canyon is one of the great tourist attractions in the United States and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are two ways to approach the Canyon the remote North Rim and the more accessable (and there for more crowded) South Rim. Both areas have several options for camping, as well as hotels and restaurants. Expect all of these facilities to be overflowing with vistors during the busy summer season. Fall, spring, and winter are all great times to visit the Grand Canyon.
