Grand Canyon Skywalk Review – Is It Worth Visiting?
The Arizona Grand Canyon stretches over 227 miles and is home to the Grand Canyon National Park. However, the best way to experience the majesty of the Grand Canyon is on the Grand Canyon skywalk. Suspended 4,000 feet over the Grand Canyon, visitors can walk on this amazing bridge way. Visitors are suspended in the air with only a glass walkway separating them and the plummeting beauty of the Grand Canyon.
Whether you are beginning you vacation by taking one of the Grand Canyon tours from Las Vegas or staying directly in a Grand Canyon national park, these skywalk tours will fit into any vacation plan. Visitors can purchase tickets to tour the skywalk as part of many tour packages or pay for a single day on the bridge. The Grand Canyon skywalk is open daily from 8 am to 5 pm.
Although the walk begins at the Grand Canyon west entrance, many points of the Grand Canyon are accessible by a short trip. If you want to try the skywalk tour, trying staying at any Grand Canyon South Rim lodging to ensure you see as much of the Grand Canyon as possible.
The only downfall to visiting the skywalk is the “no personal possessions” policy. This policy, in effort to preserve aspects of the skywalk, prohibits cameras, cell phones and strollers. Lockers are provided for visitors before their visit begins. If you are looking for the best pictures of the Grand Canyon, try another part of the canyon such as the Grand Canyon North rim.
While this skywalk is easily accessible from Las Vegas, Nevada, visitors should try the El Tovar hotel Grand Canyon. This hotel offers a Grand Canyon view and can help you schedule any of the Grand Canyon tours.
While you are visiting the Grand Canyon skywalk, there are many other attractions that will enhance your visit. You can view a Native American song and dance performance by the Hualapi Tribe or dine at the Skywalk café.
Visitors should allow a few hours of their day for visiting the Grand Canyon skywalk. Peak hours are in the afternoon and lines could become long. Dressing in appropriate shoes and clothes will also enhance your visit comfort.
