To experience some of the most inspiring views America has to offer, plan a trip to Grand Canyon National Park. The Colorado River weaves its way through the 277-mile-long canyon, making it a top destination for whitewater rafting. The Arizona park is also a superb spot to hike, offering scenic paths like the Bright Angel and North Kaibab trails.

Regardless of how you choose to spend your time in the Grand Canyon, you’re sure to feel small against its towering rock formations and expansive vistas.
