Enchantment Resort - Fourth Night Free When You Stay for Three.
Get your fourth night free when you stay for three at our leading Sedona hotel. Use your extra day for hiking in Boynton Canyon, tennis, or an easy day trip to the Grand Canyon.
While every visit to the Grand Canyon is special, the National Park Service has designed a Junior Ranger Program to help make the experience extra special for children ages four to 14.
By completing various requirements, your child can get sworn in as a Grand Canyon National Park Junior Ranger. He or she will also receive a certificate and a badge – just like regular park rangers wear.
