The Grand Canyon is a great vacation destination in the winter. You don’t have to contend with high temperatures and it is not quite as crowded so it is easier to get around. The canyon is beautiful any time of year that you go see it. While you are there you may even get to see a fresh layer of snow covering the area.
You can drive yourself into the park and take your time as you go. Stop along the way and see some of the back country of the canyon. You can find trails that follow the rim of the canyon and take your time enjoying the park by foot. You may even get a chance to be by yourself on one of these rim trails in the winter.
While you are vacationing in the area you might as well stay at one of the lodges in the park. The rooms are clean, comfortable and the best part is they are right in the Grand Canyon so you can spend more time enjoying the park. If you drive yourself into the park remember to bring an ice scraper with you. We forgot ours and soon found out that in the winter you will probably need it.
Any of the lodgings that the park offers are very nice to stay at and enjoy the park with ease. Bright Angel Lodge and Cabins is in a well used area and in the winter you may find that nice. The cabins can be less expensive then staying at the lodge if money is an object. You can also dine there and the food is pretty good.
Taking a winter vacation at the Grand Canyon is a wonderful experience and you should plan on staying right in the park at one of the lodges or cabins so you can easily go out and explore all the canyon has to see. Just stand on the edge of the canyon and look into it. Or take a hike on one of the many trails that you can find.
Eat at the Bright Angel Lodge and enjoy a good meal in a western style. The Bright Angel Restaurant is open all year round even in the winter. And if you just want to have a beverage you can have a seat at the Bright Angel Bar. Come as you are, you don’t have to dress up.
