Grand Canyon Adventures
“The Grand Canyon in Arizona is a natural wonder, unparalleled throughout the rest of the world"
The Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon is situated in Arizona's northwestern quadrant.
With millions of visitors making the trip to the canyon each year, this park is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the world.
In addition, the park has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979.
The Grand Canyon had a long and arduous road to becoming a national park, beginning in the 1880s with several failed congressional bills.
After making multiple visits to the area, Theodore Roosevelt declared the Grand Canyon a National Monument in 1908.
The bill to grant national park status to the area was passed in 1919 and signed by then-President Woodrow Wilson.
