Driving across the desert is no fun, and if you are not used to doing long stretches of driving through desolate areas, it can actually be quite dangerous. Every year, tourists who want to see the Grand Canyon will underestimate the magnitude of the drive, and will end up becoming disoriented and potentially be injured or worse when they attempt to pull over and sleep on the roadside in their car. What you must understand is that the drive from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon is 4 1/2 hours of undeveloped space in between. There will be hundreds of miles of open desert with nothing but a road going through the middle of it that you will be traveling on. There is little to nothing as far as areas for you to take a break along the trip. When you also factor in that there is no cell service along the majority of the trip and also little to no radio coverage, what you are faced with is 1/2 day drive in an unfamiliar car across an open desert with almost no entertainment the entire way. Most people who are used to driving to and from work have no ability to understand the magnitude of this trip, and unfortunately when they drive in  and then spend the day hiking and enjoying themselves , they are then completely unprepared for the magnitude of the trip back. Most people who will travel from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon will make arrangements to camp overnight in the Grand Canyon National Park simply because they understand that it is very difficult to go to the park and return in the same day if you are going to spend anytime whatsoever hiking or exploring. It simply isn’t a good idea to attempt to do too much in a day when the drive is so difficult on the way back. As you begin to fall asleep on the return trip you suddenly realize that there is almost nothing you can do in order to rectify your mistake. There are almost no areas to take a break that are not open desert. There is almost nowhere to stop and rest once you begin to start to fall asleep. You will see many people deciding to sleep in their car on the return trip on the side of the road, and this can be quite dangerous due to the fact that other cars are not expecting a car to be on the side of the road. Every year there are people hurt and even killed due to the fact that they make this mistake .

 

One of the best things that you can do in order to avoid the dangers of desert driving is to allow your trip to be coordinated by a tour operator specializes in tourists from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon. They will be prepared for the trip and will offer all of the things that you will need in order to have your trip be comfortable. When you factor in the car rental charges as well as the gas that it would take to get from place to place you will find that allowing a tour operator to drive you there and make all of the arrangements is only going to cost a small amount more than if you tried to do it yourself. Let the arrangements be made by professional tour guide, and don’t have your tour turn into a tragedy.
