The Grand Canyon, located on the northern border of Arizona, was designated as a U.S. National Park in 1919. As one of the seven natural wonders of the world, it receives more than 5 million visitors a year. The Grand Canyon was carved out by the Colorado River running along the base. The millions of years of erosion gave us the magnificent sight we have today. If you have never visited this unique national park, there are many fun tours available to provide you with an exciting time while you explore the wonders of the majestic Grand Canyon.
