Looking forward to some gorgeous views at the Grand Canyon this summer? Here are some tips to make your trip easier for your family:
Currently, Grand Canyon National Park does not require reservations or timed entry.
During the summer and hoiday periods, the South Rim Entrance Station experiences long lines and visitors can expect to wait in line for up to two hours to enter the park between 9:30 am to 4 pm.
One of the first National Parks Service sites in Arizona, Montezuma’s Castle has become one of the state’s most identifiable features. (Legoland Discovery Center in Tempe even captured it in bricks!) The beautiful 800-year-old adobe pueblo built high up in the cliff shows the ingenuity of the ancient people who lived there. Even my young children were impressed (and only a little disappointed they couldn’t tour the “castle.”)
Tuzigoot National Monument in Camp Verde, AZ, has history, friendly rangers, beautiful views and some cool ruins. It is a little drive off of the freeway, and would make a great part of a visit to Sedona or Flagstaff. This is what we were able to do with three little kids in well under 2 hours.
