There is not a lot of choices there..If you wanna do the donkey ride down in the canyon you gatta book it now..they are always like 9 months backed up on that.There is a real nice lodge in the grand canyon,it is a little pricy tho.We stayed just outside the entrance at a real nice place..."The grand hotel at the grand cayon"888/634-7263 or 928/638-3333 It is on the southern rim and it's beautiful if you have any kids The moose will walk right up to you so be careful kids might spook em..

Budget?? If you're kinda open on your budget, go to Vegas and take the helicopter or bus tour. Much more to do in Vegas. Or rent a car in Vegas and drive. You pass the Hoover Dam to get there. Or if you do the helicopter tour, you fly over it, Lake Mead, etc. It's a very nice ride. A lil rough on the motion sickness thing, but we survived. ;) It's a 45 minute helicopter flight, each way.

Way more to do in Vegas..I say plan your trip around that and then plan a day to spend at the Canyon.

havent been there yet, but my advice is when you ease out to the edge to look over, take one less step than what you were planning to take.

They said that where you see lighter colored rock is not low water level, but the rock actually rising. If I remember right...and if the guy wasn't full of it..

I would love to go out and do the Sky Walk(?) it's the acrylic bridge that brings you out and over the Canyon..your out over the edge with nothing but clear view to the bottom as if you were flying

We flew into Phoenix and rented a motorhome for a week. Lots of nice campgrounds around there and S California. The only vacation I didn't want to come home from. It was snowing in Flagstaff and 85 degrees in Lake Havasu City. Love it out there.
