Grand Canyon Railway, Arizona

An Afternoon Riding On The Grand Canyon Railway

I officially have one item checked off my “see the seven wonders of the world” list.

Six more to go.

For anyone living in Arizona, it’s pretty common to make at least one trip to the Grand Canyon. However, not everyone is lucky enough to take an entertaining train ride from the town of Williams, right up to this awe-inspiring mass of land.

A calming ride via the Grand Canyon Railway through open plains and forested mountains left me relaxed and ready to see what the Grand Canyon had to offer. Along the way there were musical performances and trivia games to keep the passengers entertained.

Once we all made it to the Grand Canyon, we were free to roam the area for about three hours before we had to be back on the train. This gave us all plenty of time to soak in the sights and really enjoy the whole experience.
