When most people talk about the Grand Canyon, you never hear “Oh! That’s the perfect winter vacationing spot.”
But this year, it’s time to try the unknown. So if you’ve never been to the Grand Canyon for a winter getaway, pack a bag, hop in the car, and head south for a week.
The Grand Canyon is only about nine hours south of Salt Lake, so use up one of your Christmas vacation weekends to check out this snow-capped world wonder.
Maswick Lodge is offering a great deal on a stay at either the Maswik South or Maswick North Lodge.
These lodges are beautifully designed to look out over the South Rim of the southwest end of Grand Canyon Village. But if you’re hoping for a romantic weekend getaway, you’ll want to hit up the El Tovar.
This famous romantic hotspot offers couples a romantic hideaway, complete with dinner, wine and a luxurious suite. Fashioned after European hunting lodges, this lodge and its killer view of the Grand Canyon will make you and your honey feel as if you’re the only two people on earth.
Be sure to enter “ROMANCE” as the promo code when you’re booking. The package is available most days, excepting the last week of December and a few other days.
If you’re planning a vacation for with the kids, the Grand Canyon will give them a night of Christmas magic on the Grand Canyon Railway, also known as the Polar Express. This train will take you and your kids straight to the North Pole, where they will meet Santa Claus and his faithful elves. Often, the train will run twice a day to accommodate the little ones with early bed times.
With a special reading of Chris Van Allsburg’s children’s classic The Polar Express, some hot chocolate and tasty cookies, this train ride is a jolly good time for the whole family.
