The Grand Canyon is one of the most famous destinations in the world. In fact, its deep gorges and steep layered rock are visited by over 5 million people each year. While you’re planning your own visit to this Wonder of the World, it’s important to understand that there are three different sides of the canyon that are available for touring:

  • Grand Canyon South Rim
  • Grand Canyon West
  • Grand Canyon North

Each rim boasts their own features that differ greatly from one another. And at 277 miles long and up to 18 miles wide, you’ll likely want to stick with one area of the canyon during your excursion from Las Vegas.
