It is also a perfect place to chill and relax by the pool or with a glass of wine. Grand Canyon’s south rim is a two- hour drive away, making it a bit far (though certainly not impossible) for a day trip, but it is a very popular (and highly recommended) inclusion in a trip to Grand Canyon, either before or after.
Staying in an Airbnb is a great way to relax, be comfortable and feel safe.
