Landmarks in the Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon is a beautiful and striking landmark itself, but within it there are points that stand out or have particular historical meaning that make them a must-see when planning a trip to the area.
Natural bridges will always fascinate tourists and the Grand Canyon offers one of the most spectacular. The Rainbow Bridge is a strange and beautiful piece of rock. Unlike most natural bridges which are rough and often square looking, the Rainbow Bridge is a curved, smooth “rainbow” shape. The bridge stands nearly 300 feet high from base to top and is truly one of a kind.
Builders and creators who chose the Grand Canyon as their site seem to have been inspired by its beauty to create beautiful things as well. The Grand Canyon Village that holds all of the hotels and shops located in the Grand Canyon. It is also the jumping off point for many tours and activities. In the village itself is the El Tovar hotel, which is built in the style of an ornate Swish chalet and has been in operation since 1904. For many, many years, El Tovar was the classiest hotel west of the Mississippi. The Look-Out Studio is a stone building on the edge of the canyon that offers visitors a chance to relax and eat lunch while enjoying a great view of the Grand Canyon. There is also the Historic Navajo Bridge and Tuweep, an abandoned town now used as a camp site.
There is so much to see at the Grand Canyon that it can be difficult to know where to start or where to look next. Sitting down and prioritizing the landmarks that you want to see can help you get the most out of your trip to the Grand Canyon.
