If you are not familiar with driving for long periods and long distances at a time, then it is probably not the best idea for you to attempt a drive from Las Vegas or Salt Lake City to the Grand Canyon on your own. Many people desire to see the Grand Canyon every year, and they fly into areas like Las Vegas in order to provide a decent start point that will save them the driving distance  from their hometown to the Grand Canyon itself. In many cases this will cut a few days off of the driving trip, but ultimately it provides its own difficulties in that you must arrange for transportation once you are in your starting city. If you have decided to start your trip in Las Vegas, this means that you are going to need to drive about 4 1/2 hours from downtown to Page Arizona at which point  you will be within a few miles of the entrance to the park itself. If you plan on spending anytime hiking enjoying yourself within the Grand Canyon space, it is not a good idea for you to plan on driving all the way there from Las Vegas and then back in the same day. You will already be tired from your drive in, and after spending like a significant portion of time outside exercising, the trip back to the city is going to be overwhelming. Every year, thousands of people attempt to do this drive on their own and are faced with the nightmare of the return trip after they have spent the entire day outside. Once you have become tired and want to rest, nothing can be worse than facing a 4 1/2 hour trip across the desert in the dark. Every year, there are a few cases where people become disoriented and cannot finish the drive simply because they are falling asleep. There are not a lot of options as far as hotel rooms that you can check into in order to get some rest along the way, so the majority of people who find themselves overwhelmed by the trip end up sleeping in their car. This can be quite dangerous and it’s not suggested for anyone. It is far better to take precautions beforehand in order to avoid these common mistakes.

 

One of the best things that you can do is to simply let the driving be done by a Tour Company that will pick you up at your Las Vegas hotel room and transport you to the Grand Canyon space as well as returning you when the trip is over. They will take care of all of the arrangements for you and will make sure that you arrive there in comfort, as well as taking care of the food and breaks that you will need during the trip. It is well worth the small amount of extra money that you would end up paying over and above a rental car and the gas that it will take to make the trip. If you are planning your trip to the Grand Canyon make sure that you do a little bit of research as far as the drive in before you undertake it.
