Grand Canyon Winter Weather
Grand Canyon Winter Weather
Every year hundreds of thousands of people visit the Grand Canyon, but many of them leaving from Las Vegas as the starting point. This is because the Grand Canyon is located about four half hours from Las Vegas, being one of the nearest cities in the area that actually supports major airline traffic. If you do not fly into a nearby city and then drive the rest of the way, you’re going to be forced to drive long distances across the desert from your home or what ever starting point you choose, which can take far longer than simply flying into the nearby cities. It is not suggested that you attempt to drive yourself from your starting point in an unfamiliar vehicle across the desert, as this presents some potential dangers as far as cellular service lacking as well as vehicle breakdowns on under populated roads. It is far better to simply arrange for transportation from one of the many tour companies that provides tours begin from Las Vegas like ours. We will take care of all the arrangements for you and make sure the ear Grand Canyon trip is unforgettable without having the stresses of attempting to drive in an unfamiliar area. In addition, not having to drive is going to give you the ability to actually enjoy yourself because there is nothing worse than trying to drive for many hours and then spending the day outdoors, then trying to drive back. No matter what, we always suggest at least an overnight stay in the Grand Canyon if you are going to fully enjoy yourself.
When the main questions that gets asked during the wintertime visit the Grand Canyon is still good to visit? This is because people have seen pictures but have very little understanding of the weather in the desert unless you are from the region. Many people believe that an area like Las Vegas because it is in the desert is actually hot year round, when nothing is further from the truth. While it is definitely not during the summer, Las Vegas can get very cold in winter. While it is not necessarily going to have the kinds of snow that you might see on the east coast or in other areas of the country, it is still going to get down to an unfamiliar temperature if you do not have the adequate clothing prepared. The Grand Canyon is going to be much like Las Vegas as far as whether only you’ll be able to see variances in temperature up and down around 10°. This is because the heat is not trapped the way it does inside the city, it is able to dissipate into the atmosphere. This means that in the wintertime you may see temperatures as well as the twenties in the Grand Canyon and as high as the sixties are seventies. For this reason, we would always suggest bringing several layers of clothing during your winter Grand Canyon tour, so that you can ultimately be comfortable in almost any weather situation.
