Not everyone chooses to go on vacation in the warm summer months. In fact, many families are now taking their vacations when the weather has cooled off for more reasons than one. The first and most important reason for taking a winter vacation is because of the economy. It is impossible for many families to be able to afford the high cost of a summer vacation. Another is because there is not as much traffic and the sites are not bogged down with thousands of tourists. Those who want to take a vacation to the Grand Canyon in winter can take advantage of the low cost and lack of tourists.
• South Rim – When booking your vacation, you need to make sure that you are visiting the South Rim if it is after October. The North Rim is closed from the middle of October to the middle of May so it is impossible for anyone to get there.
• Xanterra South Rim LLC – Xanterra takes pride in offering the service of knowing each lodge in the South Rim and their occupancy. You can call or email them to find out where you can stay and how affordable the prices are for you. They also supply all the concessions and take care of this area of the canyon.

• Bright Angel Lodges and Cabins – Those who want to take a step back in time and stay in some quaint cabins that were built in the 1030’s need to look into booking some rooms at the Bright Angel Lodges and Cabins. The cabin price is not much more than the lodge but the ambience is much better. The rustic cabins are set up just as they would have been in the past and truly give the feeling of getting away from it all.
The Grand Canyon is a popular get away no matter what time of year you are planning your trip. Those who want to avoid the huge crowds and save some money should visit during the winter months. There are many places that are accessible from the South Rim and the lodgings have a historic slant to them for those who want that. Of course, there are also accommodations for the business people who need to be plugged in while on vacation.
