If you read my other articles, you will notice I focus on Las Vegas quite a bit. Obviously Im a fan. Someone pointed out to me recently that other places do exist in the western part of America. They informed me that there is a pretty big hole in the ground known as the Grand Canyon, and that I should take a look. After some research and consideration, I decided to check it out via Las Vegas, of course!
I discovered that one option available to visit the Grand Canyon is to take a bus tour. The bus companies will pick up and drop off directly from most hotels on the Strip. They offer one day tours or the ability to stay overnight in the Grand Canyon. I figured that this was a great opportunity to leave the poker room for the day and get some fresh air and sunshine. Throw in a stop at the Hoover Dam and Im there!
If you would like a very detailed account of my experience and what to expect, please check out my article here. And then feel free to ask any other questions in the comment section. I will say this I will definitely plan on visiting the Grand Canyon again, and not from Las Vegas!
