Spanning more than 275 miles and plummeting more than 6,000 feet deep, the Grand Canyon is one of the largest natural wonders in the United States. Its sheer size and notoriety bring visitors from all over the world to witness the beauty of the Grand Canyon. Whether you are staying on-site at the Grand Canyon Lodge North Rim or taking a day trip from a nearby resort, these are a few of the fun things you can do at Grand Canyon National Park.

Explore the Grand Canyon Village 

Most tourists who visit the Grand Canyon begin their excursion at the Grand Canyon Village. At this popular entrance to the park, there are plenty of restaurants and shops where travelers can pick up authentic Native American goods and local art. In addition, the Village is located near Yavapai Point, where visitors can experience some of the most awe-inspiring views of the Grand Canyon.

Ride a Donkey Along the Bright Angel Trail

Grand Canyon visitors can book an excursion to traverse this 6-mile trail on the back of a mule. This is a two-day trip, with travelers stopping at a lodge to stay the night before completing the journey.

Visit the Geological Museum

The Geological Museum is located at a point in the canyon from which visitors can see the best representations of the geologic formations that have occurred over time. Plus, learn about the different time periods during which the canyon formed.

Take a Scenic Drive Along Hermit Road

This is a 7-mile ride that goes around the rim of the canyon. You can take this ride on a shuttle bus, or in your own car, depending on the time of year.

It's hard to experience the entirety of the Grand Canyon in just a day, but those who are planning a day trip from nearby resorts like Parry Lodge will not be disappointed.
