Grand Canyon

 

Photo by National Park Service

A family vacation to the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park offers families more than a view of a gaping hole. Hike, horseback ride or take a mule trip. Visit a museum or explore an Anasazi archaeological site. Take a train tour from Williams through the Wild West. And if expectations are managed properly, cultivate appreciation for one of the seven natural wonders of the world.
