I am going to Vegas for the first time in March for 4 nights . We are staying at Bally’s and plan on seeing the Grand Canyon also. Any suggestions on restaurants and things to do? Thanks
It was interesting. My family stayed there around Christmas 2012. Did that buffet as part of the Caesar's Enterprises 24 hour buffet deal for less than $50 (went to Rio twice). I guess the best part was the made to order crepes. And I like having coffee, especially since there was no in-room coffee and downstairs coffee was maybe $4.We love the breakfast buffet at the Paris hotel.
Isn't that part off of NPS land? I thought it was on the Hulapai Reservation in an area where the Grand Canyon isn't all that deep.Which part of the Grand Canyon are you going to? Keep in mind that it's a pretty long way. We went to Vegas and the Grand Canyon for my birthday a few years ago and I LOVED the trip. We booked a GC tour via one of the groups that leaves from the Strip. We left around 7am, had lunch in Williams (about 40 minutes) and got to the Grand Canyon a little after noon. We stopped at two different viewing points (one for about an hour, another a little longer as it had a snack bar and gift shop and more to see), then got back on the road and got back to Vegas around 9pm. So it's not a LONG visit with the Canyon but I thought it was fantastic and since it's such a long way, it was nice to not have to worry about driving ourselves. There is a portion of the GC that is closer to Vegas (West Rim) but the further one is the one you want (South Rim).
No the North Rim is part of NPS and you still get the amazing spectacular views as the South Rim. I actually enjoy it more than the South Rim.I think you are talking about the North Rim. The South Rim is where you get the epic, spectacular panoramic views you expect.
Ahh. I think I am remembering that just the West and South Rims were options from Vegas when we went. Didn't realize the West Rim wasn't part of the national park!No the North Rim is part of NPS and you still get the amazing spectacular views as the South Rim.

West Rim is on the reservation a d that's where you find the glass walkway and they have zip lining too. West Rim is advertised as 2(1/2?) hours from Vegas.
I know about the North and South Rims. I was thinking the "West Rim" you mentioned is really the part of the Hulapai Reservation. You know - where the skywalk is? I understand that that part of the Grand Canyon isn't particularly deep. Still - I recall that when the skywalk was first built the road was kind of a washboard dirt road until the tribe paved the route.I think you are talking about the North Rim. The South Rim is where you get the epic, spectacular panoramic views you expect.
