The Advantages of a Grand Canyon Road Trip
Even if you’re a long-time resident, we’re guessing there are still lots of Arizona road trip destinations you haven’t checked off your list. And at the top of any Arizonan’s list—a Grand Canyon road trip. With Arizona averaging almost 300 days of sunshine per year, it’s nearly always a good time to visit this natural wonder of the world.

No matter where you start, you’ll want a couple of days to explore the park. Book one of the great vacation rentals in the Grand Canyon to see all that this stunning area has to offer.
