Beat the Heat this Summer in Grand Canyon Country
It’s summer which means one thing for Phoenicians – it’s hot. If your eyes are already straying towards the exits, and you find yourself looking for an escape that is scenic, serene, and less than 100 degrees, you owe it to yourself to beat the heat and take a trip to Grand Canyon country to experience one of the seven natural wonders of the world by rail!
Since 1901, the Grand Canyon Railway and Hotel has been taking passengers on a fabled journey to the heart of one of the seven wonders of the world. Grand Canyon Railway is more than just a mode of transportation: it’s a trip back in time on lovingly restored rail cars with entertaining musicians and the antics of cowboy characters. Out your window, the terrain changes from high desert to prairie, prairie to pine. It’s a view that’s ever-changing until you come across a view so brilliant, it could very well change you.
The best part? With Williams, Arizona less than 3 hours away from Phoenix, it’s the perfect quick road trip through one of the more gorgeous parts of the country. All aboard to the Grand Canyon to make a grand trip grander!
