Grand Canyon

Top 10 Must-See Travel Destinations

The Grand Canyon is widely considered North America's greatest natural wonder

Grand Canyon

If North America's greatest natural wonder — a red-hued canyon 277 river miles long, eighteen miles wide, and one mile deep — doesn't make your mouth drop in awe, then you might not be human. While the north rim attracts fewer visitors, you'll most likely appreciate the epic vistas of the south rim. There are plenty of spots to pull the car over and have a look from the top, but we recommend trekking along the rim on foot. You can also descend into the canyon's depths via mules or guided hiking excursions, experience "The Heart of the Canyon" by raft on the Colorado River, and even spend the night at a lodge below the rim.
