Humphreys or any one of the innumerable hikes in this part of Arizona. Flagstaff hotels make a great basecamp for anyone wanting to spend a few days exploring.

Williams is about 60 miles from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and is a charming town located on the Historic Route 66. Williams is where the Grand Canyon Railway departs from and is only 35 miles from Flagstaff. Williams hotels are the closest to the Grand Canyon without actually staying at the Grand Canyon.

When you picture a Las Vegas vacation, you probably imagine staying in one of the mammoth, glittering Las Vegas hotels and resort casinos that line Las Vegas Boulevard roughly between Sahara Avenue and Russell Road, popularly known as "The Strip." Hotels on the 4.2-mile Las Vegas Strip are the most popular places to stay in the City of Sin thanks to the 24-hour "night"life, bigger-than-life themed resorts, five-star dining, glamorous swimming pools and of course, non-stop gaming and entertainment. If you want to be right in the heart of the action, you will want to choose one of the hotels on the Las Vegas Strip.

Las Vegas is the closest city to the West Rim of the Grand Canyon. Just a three hour drive from Las Vegas, the spectacular glass bridge known as the Grand Canyon Skywalk extends 70 feet over the edge of the of the Grand Canyon, giving the brave visitors who venture out onto it an unparalleled view of the rocky canyon below. Grand Canyon tours from Las Vegas are typically destined for Grand Canyon West, but the South Rim is also a popular destination from Las Vegas. Tours from Las Vegas commonly include transportation by van, coach, helicopter, airplane and Jeep (or a combination therein) and range in price from under $100 per person to over $600 per person.

Sedona is known for its beautiful red rocks and rare energy. Located about 110 miles from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, visitors will encounter nothing short of a stunningly experience. Sedona offers luxury resort spas, cozy bed and breakfasts and cabins along the creek. If you're more of a luxury traveler, a Sedona hotel might be the way to go when visiting the Grand Canyon.

Ground tours to the South Rim leave from Sedona daily. There are van tours that offer guests a panoramic view of some of the Southwest's most picturesque high desert vistas, or you might take a helicopter tour and get a bird's eye view of Oak Creek Canyon, Arizona's highest peaks, and the entire Kaibab Plateau.
