1. Grand Canyon West
Slightly less busy than the tourist-heavy area of Grand Canyon South, but boasting some of the Grand Canyon's most exciting activities – and some of the best views of the whole national park – Grand Canyon West is the place to go if you're hoping to enjoy some of the area's more adrenaline-packed activities.
With whitewater rafting, swooping helicopter rides, and the Skywalk glass bridge all located in the vicinity of Grand Canyon West, it's a thrillseeker's paradise! But if you just want to kick back and enjoy the spectacular scenery from Guano Point, explore the Native American village at Eagle Point Viewpoint, rent a cabin in Hualapai Ranch, or drift peacefully down the Colorado River in a kayak, you can do all that too.
