8 HELPFUL TIPS FOR PLANNING A TRIP TO THE GRAND CANYON WITH KIDS
We drove to the Grand Canyon after visiting Sedona where we had a fantastic time exploring that area, and it was an easy 2.5 hour drive in via Flagstaff.
Getting to the Grand Canyon South Rim
Grand Canyon Airport is located 7 miles south of the park, and there is limited air service from Las Vegas, Phoenix and Flagstaff. To search all flight options, consider a flight search comparison website like Skyscanner or Momondo or Kayak.
Flying to the Grand Canyon
Grand Canyon Railway
For a unique and historic option, consider traveling to the South Rim on the Grand Canyon Railway which offers train service from the town of Williams, AZ.
Getting Around at the South Rim
Because my parents and sister were staying at Kachina Lodge, which sits directly on the South Rim in Grand Canyon Village, I could park our rental car there.
Grand Canyon Hikes With Kid
When planning a trip to the Grand Canyon with kids, factor in time for actually hiking along the rim, or down into the canyon, and preferably both!
