When you see the Grand Canyon on TV or in the movies, chances are you’re seeing the South Rim. But there’s so much more to the 277 mile long, 1 mile wide Canyon than what you see on the big screen!
The Grand Canyon’s lesser-known West Rim offers a more rugged alternative to the South Rim’s many recognizable vistas and viewpoints – and it’s more accessible too. Owned and operated by the Hualapai Indians, Grand Canyon West is only a short three hour drive from Las Vegas (compared to five or six hours to the South Rim), making it the perfect option for travelers who want to experience the illustrious majesty of the Grand Canyon on a tighter schedule. And because it receives fewer guests and has comparatively sparse infrastructure, it’s easier to get up close and personal with the Grand Canyon when you visit the West Rim.
