Peach Springs, AZ, January 08, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Visitors looking to experience the natural beauty of the Grand Canyon amid the federal government shutdown can do so at Grand Canyon West
, which remains open and fully operational for visitors from all over the world.
Grand Canyon West is owned and operated by the Hualapai Tribe through its Grand Canyon Resort Corporation. Grand Canyon West is not part of the National Park Service. Thus, the tourism center, which attracts more than 1 million visitors each year, has not been at all affected by the current federal government shutdown.
“We want to make sure there’s no confusion for visitors to the Grand Canyon. We are open and it’s as gorgeous as ever,” explains Colin McBeath, the CEO of the Grand Canyon Resort Corporation. “We’re just a quick two-hour ride from Las Vegas, or four hours from Phoenix. We’re here seven days a week to serve one and all.”
Visitors are welcome to explore the world-famous Skywalk glass bridge, which hovers more than 4,000 feet about the floor of the Grand Canyon. Other Grand Canyon West experiences include Hualapai Ranch, which is a replica of an old western town, and majestic viewpoints like Eagle Point and Guano Point. Overnight visitors can stay at the Cabins at Hualapai Ranch, while those interested in boating the Colorado River can book tours with Hualapai River Runners. Helicopter tours of the Canyon are also available.
Grand Canyon West is open seven days a week, including all major holidays, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. During the winter months, the last ticket sold to enter Grand Canyon West is 4:30 p.m.
