Christmas in the Canyon
Where to Stay: Trailer Village RV Park | Grand Canyon, AZ
The Grand Canyon is an excellent destination for Christmas simply due to its breathtaking views, but did you know there are typically fewer people in the park on this holiday? Winter conditions also create cloud inversions, where the clouds can be seen resting low in the canyon. If you’re looking for a remote experience where you’ll see the Christmas trees, you can access the North Rim by hiking from the South Rim.
Whether you are looking for a staycation or traveling from out of state, Arizona is filled with activities and destinations that will be sure to get you in the holiday spirit!
