West Grand Canyon – Skywalk

One of the most popular questions we get asked is where the Skywalk is. Unfortunately, the distance between Horseshoe Bend and West Grand Canyon (where they Skybridge is located is quite significant.) Most of the time it is easier to take a tour from Las Vegas, as there are many day trips that are very reasonably priced. Check out westgrandcanyon.com for more information.   RS6957_skywalk 12-scr

  1. I sAw the boat tours are for ages 4 and up andWe have a two year old that will be with us. The only tour I’ve found so far for his age is the antelope canyon tour. Any recommendations on what we can do safely with him in tote? Thank you!

    1. Hi Brittany,
      Unfortunately, you will be somewhat limited with a child that age in your party, especially if you’re traveling to the area during the hot months of summer.
      Fortunately, there is no shortage of things you can do, including
      – Visiting the Horseshoe Bend Overlook
      – Taking a scenic drive along Lakeshore Drive or down to Antelope Point Marina (requires a National Park/Recreation Area vehicular entrance fee)
      – Exploring the “New” Wave
      – Visiting the John Wesley Powell Museum
      – Touring the Carl Hayden Visitors Center at Glen Canyon Dam
      – Taking a short swim or having a picnic on Lone Rock beach (also requires park entrance fee)
      One observation: I think the boat tour you’re referring to is the Glen Canyon Half Day Float Trip, which is indeed limited to children 4 and up. You might consider a boat tour of Antelope Canyon’s waterside from Antelope Point Marina, which only lasts 1 hour and is open to younger kids. In fact, those under 3 travel free. Again, though, if you’re traveling in the summertime, be sure to time any activities requiring prolonged sun exposure for earlier in the morning to ensure your little one’s comfort and safety.
      Best wishes for safe travels,
      Alley 🙂
