    Another must-see during your expedition of Grand Canyon is the Tusayan Museum and Ruin. This ancient pueblo, right off route 64, was discovered and excavated in 1930. And, it dates back some-800 years. "An easier way for us to connect to Grand Canyon is through the people who were here," says Ranger Emily Davis of the Grand Canyon National Park Service.

    Some of the most impressive views of the Grand Canyon are about 4 hours to the west of the South Rim. We're talking about Skywalk, which is on the Hualapai Indian Reservation. If the glass bottom floor doesn't scare you, from this vantage point, you'll be 4,000 feet above the canyon.

    The Grand Canyon is just a 3-1/2- to 4-hour drive from the Valley, so visiting the canyon could realistically be done in a day. If you only have a short amount of time, no problem! The National Parks Service says most people only spend half a day at the canyon, so here's how you can take in all the sights in four hours or less.
