Hi hoping somebody might be able to give me some advice.
We are flying to Vegas from the UK for a week at the end of Jan and have 5 nights booked in Vegas, one at the Grand Canyon West Ranch including a helicopter trip over the Canyon (on the west rim) then we have one night left - free.
We finish at the West Ranch about 3pm-ish and will need to be at Vegas airport lunchtime the following day to fly home. I'd really like to see more of the Canyon (viewpoints as opposed to hiking fine, especially bearing in mind limited time and weather).
However, bearing in mind the distances involved and short time we have I'm not sure that going to the south rim to stay is a good idea as I don't think we have enough time.
Does anybody have any recommendations or advice they could give? I can find very little (if any) information on the west rim or area surrounding. Can we get good viewpoints driving around this area? Are there places to stay?
Any advice appreciated.
