Recently I’ve been thinking about holidays I had years ago, particularly ones spent with my family. It’s been years since I’ve been away with my family – something that needs to rectified soon! I could talk about so many of my family holidays, I was very lucky and got to visit some incredible places. One of my favourites was our trip to Las Vegas and The Grand Canyon. My Dad and Step-Mum got married in Vegas and it was such as incredible trip. The hotels are like nothing you’ve ever seen before. Now I’m over 21, I’d love to go back and experience a night at the casinos. I was too young before so I had to make do with walking through them very quickly!
For some reason, I hadn’t realised just how easy it was to visit The Grand Canyon from Vegas. We went on a day trip where our driver picked us from our hotel (The amazing Circus Circus!) and then we drove to the Canyon in a jeep. Driving around the Canyon in a jeep is the coolest way to travel!
The Grand Canyon was one of those places I never thought I would visit but I’m so glad that I did. You cannot help but be impressed by the magnificent surroundings. The Canyon just seems to go on forever as all you can see are these tremendous rocks in the most beautiful reds, oranges and browns.
The advantage of going in a jeep tour is getting really close to the Canyon to take some photos to remember. We stopped right next to edge at one point and I sat pretty close to it for a photo – not something I would recommend to the faint hearted!
Obviously, the Canyon has been adapted to tourists so if you want to walk over the edge and look down, a giant clear platform has been built to alow you to do this. Just don’t jump on the floor…
I loved visiting the Grand Canyon. I’m sometimes a little disappointed by famous landmarks but this was worth the hype. I feel the need to let you in on a secret though. When I visited King’s Canyon in Australia, our tour guide told us a fun fact… the Grand Canyon isn’t even a Canyon! Not sure where the name comes from then! But whatever it is, it’s a fantastic day out and something you should definitely try and fit into your Vegas trip if you’re there for a few days.
Have you been to the Canyon? What did you think?
