El Tovar - the hotel where presidents overnight when visiting the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park will undergo major renovations. Opened in 1905 this Grand Canyon icon will remain open during the renovation - starting in 2014 and scheduled to end in 2015.
The El Tovar gets a major overhaul including roof replacement, new carpet, bedding, curtains, furniture and bigger flat-screen TVs. As if anybody would need a huge TV when you can see nature's beauty just outside the window. ;-)

Many visitors are now choosing to fly from Las Vegas to Grand Canyon West and the Skywalk, or to the South Rim. However you may choose your experience, there are plenty options to gain a greater perspective of this National Park by taking a helicopter, exploring slot canyons and the river, fly over it, hike the trails, or grasp the ropes on a whitewater rafting trip. Of course, there are gentler options like the Smoothwater Float Trip for all ages and abilities too.
Grand Canyon National Park averages 4.7 million visitors annually. Over 3 million will visit the South Rim. Nearly 750,000 will enjoy the North Rim and over 500,000 will visit Grand Canyon West and the Skywalk. The Canyon we visit today is a gift from past generations. Take the time to enjoy it. Sit and watch the changing play of light and shadows along the rim. Wander along a trail and feel the sunshine and wind on your face. Attend a ranger program offered by the National Park Service. Follow the antics of ravens and California Condors soaring above the rim. Listen for the roar of the rapids far below. Savor a sunrise and/or sunset.
As the shadows lengthen across the spires and buttes, time passes into the depths of the canyon, understand what this great canyon has to offer us - a sense of humility born in the interconnections of all that is and a willingness to care for this land. We have the responsibility to ensure that future generations have the opportunity to form their own connections with this great place. Come visit us today.
