Grand Canyon National Park

Named as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979, Grand Canyon National Park is the 15th oldest national park in United States of America. It is located in northwestern Arizona. The most prominent feature of the park is the Grand Canyon, a gorge of the Colorado River which is often counted amongst the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

The primary areas for the public of the park are the North and the South Rims of the Grand Canyon itself. The rest of the park is exceedingly remote and rugged. Both the rims of the Canyon are connected by the Mike O'Callaghan Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge and Hoover Dam.

The park is headquartered at the Grand Canyon Village. The accommodations are taken care by Xanterra Parks and Resorts. The nearest cities to the park are Fredonia on the North Rim and Tusayan in the South Rim.
