Here’s All The Magical Reasons Why You’ll Want To Visit The Grand Canyon In Arizona This Winter

Winter travel in Arizona usually means one of two things: either you’re looking to actively avoid the snow in our deserts or you’re hoping to catch a few flurries on your tongue in our high country. If your idea of winter fun involves the latter, then you’re in luck because we’re checking out a few reasons we think the Grand Canyon is the perfect spot to visit during this chilly time of year.

Please note, we’re focusing on the South Rim. The Grand Canyon’s North Rim closes every winter from December 1 to May 15 due to the extreme winter weather and muddy road conditions. Avoid possible disaster scenarios and stick with the popular South Rim until May!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life.
