There’s nothing we love more than seeing people wonder at the marvel of the Grand Canyon! To help share the love, we’ve created a gallery of our favorite #CanyonSelfies, sent to us by Grand Canyon adventurers on Facebook and Instagram.
If you need a break from the brightly-lit and bustling Las Vegas Strip, look no further than the scenic respite of Red Rock Canyon. This beautiful, arid stretch of land was Nevada’s first National Conservation Area and it’s now one of the most popular in the country, with over one million annual visitors.
The Grand Canyon’s South Rim is peppered with unique and visionary structures designed by pioneering architect Mary Colter.
Mary Colter was part of a small handful of female architects working in the early 20th century. In fact, census data indicates that there were only 22 female architects in the United States when Mary Colter graduated from the California School of Design (now the San Francisco Art Institute) and began her apprenticeship at a local architectural firm!
When you think of Las Vegas, the first things that often come to mind are usually casinos, showgirls, and extravagant meals. But “Sin City” isn’t just about glitz and glamor – Vegas is also home to a number of other exciting attractions, including many unique museums.
Spring break is right around the corner! Whether you’re planning a college getaway or a family vacation with your kids, the Southwest is the perfect place to escape from the blustery winds and frigid temperatures many face every winter.
Las Vegas is a common starting point for the well-travelled Grand Canyon-Bryce Canyon-Zion Park loop. This loop is a popular route for Southwest roadtrippers, but if a single week isn’t enough time for you hit all three locations, Las Vegas is a perfect home base for exploring a number of iconic Southwest landmarks, like the Grand Canyon, Death Valley, the Hoover Dam, and Red Rock Canyon.
