Getting Here

Getting to the Grand Canyon is an adventure in itself. There are a number of different ways to arrive at the canyon, and you should explore them all before selecting just one. Whether you're coming from outside the state, within Arizona or mere minutes away, you're sure to have the ride of your life with miraculous views.

Driving

For the kings of the road, driving to the Grand Canyon is an enjoyable experience filled with many scenic detours or quick direct routes. To reach the South Rim, the drive from Flagstaff along Highway 180 to Highway 64 is particularly pretty as you wind your way through the beautiful Kaibab National Forest.

For the rugged North Rim, note that Highway 67, which heads south from Jacob Lake into the park, is only open seasonally – usually from mid-May to mid-October.

Grand Canyon Railway

All aboard these restored vintage locomotives that are filled with Grand Canyon lore. With round trips from Williams to the South Rim of the canyon, the Grand Canyon Railway offers a unique experience that takes you on a journey through history. For a spectacular view, grab a seat in the observation dome and watch as the countryside terrain changes before your eyes. Learn more.

Public Transportation

Relax and leave the navigation to someone else. There are a number of safe, affordable and reliable public transportation options from the surrounding area and beyond. Arizona Shuttle has a number of park-and-ride locations where you can hop aboard a bus to the Grand Canyon.

Grand Canyon Airport

For a bird's eye view of the canyon, considering flying in on a private or charter aircraft. The Grand Canyon Airport (GCN) is situated in Tusayan, near the South Rim, and offers a one-of-a-kind view of the canyon.
