There are around 6 million visitors at the Grand Canyon from all over the world each year. The landscape is particularly breathtaking during February so if you have any special birthday, anniversary, business or valentine’s plans, make sure they involve a stay in Vegas!
The Grand Canyon National Park is an ideal location with lots to explore for people of all ages. The North Rim stays closed during winter months until May 15th but you can head over to the South Rim any time of the year. You can get a digital pass from their official website and download it on your device to use any time you need it.
There are several campsites that are ideal for spending quality time with your family and friends. You can also enjoy rafting, hiking and driving on the beautiful pathways that lead up to the site.
Here’s why February is the best time to visit the Grand Canyon.
Avoid tourist crowds and enjoy better weather
Summer is usually when people plan some time off to spend time vacationing at places. However, because everyone wants to enjoy the great weather and holiday period, crowds at popular tourist points like these tend to be a lot.
This can make it frustrating to actually see the spot properly and get a good view of the canyon itself.
February on the other hand is relatively more serene and less crowded and the ideal time before spring break hits. If you want to avoid weather storms and storms of college students visiting the location, it’s best to wait out the cold winter season.
The calm and quiet allows you to explore the location in depth and is a different experience entirely. You can be alone with your thoughts and enjoy important moments with the people you love.
More things to do
The best part about going in February is that there are more things to do as well. You can explore some trails that might be close off during the winter months due to the threat of storms.
The South Kaibab Trail or even the Bright Angel Trail (particularly the rim trail west) are fun to explore in the relatively cooler temperatures.
The west rim also offers the opportunity for fun attractions like the 4000 foot Skywalk which can otherwise be too hot to enjoy during the summer.
