Grand Canyon National Park is the 15th site in the United States to have been named a national park. Named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979, the park is located in northwestern Arizona. 


The park's central feature is the Grand Canyon, a gorge of the Colorado River, which is often considered one of the Wonders of the World. The park, which covers 1,217,262 acres (1,901.972 sq mi; 492,608 ha; 4,926.08 km2) of unincorporated area in Coconino and Mohave counties, received nearly six million recreational visitors in 2016, which is the second highest count of all U.S. national parks after Great Smoky Mountains National Park.


Being one of the wonders of the world, Grand Canyon is amongst the most popular tourist attractions in America. The most valuable natural wonder on United States' territory is situated in the northwest corner of Arizona.


There isn't another place which would intrigue and surprise you as much as the Grand Canyon. The visual effect created by the immensity and beauty of the region is what attracts so many visitors to the park. Here the world seems bigger. Storms, sunsets and sunrises seem more impressive. Here one will stop, be quiet for a while, contemplate and become meek and mild.


No matter when you go, what time of the day, the canyon looks different. From hour to hour, from sunrise to sunset, the vast shapes and always changing colors of the Grand Canyon's wilderness of rocks interact with the eyes of the tourists. 


Many lucky people, staying for more than a day at the Grand Canyon's site, enjoy the light show of millions twinkling stars making their appearance and adding to the indescribable beauty of the far reaches of the canyon at a full moon.
