8. Las Vegas 2-Day Grand Canyon Railway Bearizona Meteor Crater
Discover the wonders of the Grand Canyon on a 2-day, multi-stop tour from Las Vegas, including roundtrip transportation and overnight hotel accommodation. Ride a train on the Grand Canyon Railway. Whole experience riding on the train really set you back how people originally visit Grand Canyon. It's just as cool as it sounded - you ride on a train to Grand Canyon south rim with your love ones, peaceful meanwhile a whole different perspective, full of entertainment during the train trip, when you are doing the chicken dance on the train with musicians, the cowboys "accidently" popping out to rob the train. Day 1: Following hotel pickup, visit Arizona Route 66 Museum to explore the origin and culture of the road. The museum is located in the historic Kingman Powerhouse and depicts the historical evolution of travel along the 35th parallel that became Route 66. Next, head to Bearizona Wildlife Park to see more than 30 kinds of rare wild animals in an approximately 160-acre space. Drive through more than three miles of ponderosa pine forest and check out a 20-acre walk-through area along winding paths. Get time for lunch at the wildlife park (cost not included) before the next stop-the Meteor Crater. Nestled on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, the Meteor Crater’s visitor center is one of the most popular attractions in Northern Arizona. Over 50,000 years ago, space and earth came together when a huge iron-nickel meteorite, approximately 150 feet wide and weighing several hundred thousand tons, impacted an area outside of Flagstaff, Arizona, with a force 150 times greater than an atomic bomb. Day 2: Depart early from the hotel to the Grand Canyon Railway Station in Williams, a heritage railroad that carries passengers between Williams and the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park. Enjoy a 2.5-hour train ride that blends adventure, history, and culture, before arriving at Grand Canyon Village. Then, join a 3-hour Grand Canyon tour. As one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Grand Canyon is a must-see destination. The mile-deep canyon formed millions of years ago as the Colorado River cut a deep channel through layers of hard rock, exposing ribboned layers of the Earth’s crust. The canyon measures 270 miles long and stretches across northern Arizona. There is truly nothing quite like it, which is why people of all ages from around the world come to witness this breathtaking Southwest landmark. After the tour, take a return 2.5-hour train ride back along the Grand Canyon Railway Station. Finish your trip with hotel drop-off back in Las Vegas.
