The Grand Canyon by Way of Trains, Planes & Automobiles
There are few things that represent Americana on as large of a scale as the Grand Canyon, though America’s love for transportation is easily on the short list. From the railroads blazing west, to the daring of heroes including the Wright Brothers and Amelia Earhart, to our general love affair with the automobile, each is decidedly set in American culture. And when combining our love of transportation with the natural beauty of our nation travelers will find a varied way to enjoy the different sights of the Grand Canyon for a full perspective of its depth and beauty.
Grand Canyon Railway Budd Coach
Those looking for a truly nostalgic trip to the Grand Canyon will absolutely want to experience the Grand Canyon Railway Budd Coach. Riding on an authentic coach train from Budd Manufacturing Company, the small touches of the car will go just as far as the mammoth views of the Grand Canyon in creating a memorable experience. Along the journey, you will travel approximately 65 miles, viewing the Grand Canyon from the South Rim. Whether wanting to relive yester year for the first time or all over again, the Grand Canyon Railway Budd Coach offers an authentic experience coupled with incredible sights!
The South Rim Airplane Tour combines panoramic views with the ability to see a lot in a short amount of time to create one of the more comprehensive options for sightseeing in the Grand Canyon area. Along this approximately 45 minute tour, Zuni Point, Painted Desert, Navajo Indian Reservation and, of course, the Grand Canyon will all be seen. And while great on its own, when combined with either a train or motor coach tour the South Rim Airplane Tour provides a perfect 1, 2 punch that allows you to take in both the grand scope of the Grand Canyon and the intimate details.
While the Grand Canyon may be most noted for its size, you won’t truly appreciate the spectacle fully until you have seen it face-to-face, and with the Grand Canyon Safari & Rim Walk you will get just such an opportunity. Along the journey, you will travel from the Kaibab National Forest to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon by way of Jeep. Once at the rim, you will then have the opportunity to explore by foot for a truly up close experience.
