Tour of the Grand Canyon from the city of Las Vegas

Las Vegas is not just glitz and glamour, there is also a nature side to it and the Grand Canyon nearby offers just that and can be covered in just four hour commute from the city for the southern rim and even less around two hour for the western rim of the canyon. The canyon looks gorgeous and there is even a glass bottomed Grand Canyon skywalk (located at the west rim) that lies way high above the floor of the canyon for some remarkable views.

There are even tours of the Grand Canyon by bus, helicopter or local airplane and the area not just has scenic beauty but also rich native American tribal history besides fun and adventure in the canyon itself like in a river expedition where one can view hidden waterfalls or side canyons that appear like out of an extra terrestrial movie. There are also bus tours to the canyon available from Las Vegas city and even walking tours in the canyon area.
