All aboard the Grand Canyon Railway!

Visitors from all over the world come to Arizona to visit the Grand Canyon, whether it be via flight, road trip or bus ride.

But one of the most calming, scenic ways to get the Grand Canyon is the Grand Canyon Railway — a two-and-a-half to three hour ride through the mountains and plains with musical performances, games, trivia, folklore and history, and surprises along the way — including an old-fashioned shoot out and train robbery!

According to the Grand Canyon Railway’s website, each train engine and each train car has been restored to its original state by the staff.

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.

If you’re interested in going, here are the rates:

 Coach ClassAdults: $75.00 | Children: $45.00First ClassAdults: $140.00 | Children: $110.00
