The canyon is 277 miles in length, has a width that changes from four to 18 miles across, and reaches depths of more than a mile. Originally inhabited by Native American populations, today it is one of the most visited tourist sites in America. Due to the length and breadth of the canyon, you have a number of choices in which EasyToBook.com discount hotel to pick.
