How to Plan Your Trip from Las Vegas to the Skywalk
To plan your trip from Las Vegas to the Skywalk at the Grand Canyon, it’s important to note that personal items including cameras and cellphones are not allowed on the Skywalk. During your time on the glass bridge, a professional photographer will be available if you wish to purchase a photo to commemorate your visit.
On the day of your visit, start by checking the weather forecast. The Grand Canyon area can experience temperature extremes, so dress in layers and wear comfortable walking shoes. There can be a notable difference in temperature between Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon, with the latter being cooler due to higher elevation.
Remember to plan accordingly and check the specific guidelines and regulations of the Skywalk before your visit to ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience.
