We’re here enjoying the Grand Canyon during the winter. Let’s jump right. Here’s the new Grand Canyon Chamber website, and what we wanna show you first is right here’s where you can find the weekly update to the Grand Canyon Travel News, and then right here’s where you can go and take a look at the all new Grand Canyon Visitor Guide. Let’s jump right in and have Stoney tell us about it.
Well, this was real important for our board, so we wanted to make sure that the traveler got good content when they’re traveling up to the Grand Canyon. Because a lot of times as a visitor, cuz as you know, I’m a professional guy, they were always asking, where’s this place? Where’s that? So we wanted to show ’em where Sedona was.
Where Lake Powell was, Tusayan, Flagstaff, Williams, and all these beautiful places. If you click on down there, you can see on the map here was really cool is if you press each one of those buttons right there, takes you right over into the visitors guys and shows you exactly what, where that area is and it highlights our grand partners inside the visitors guide there.
And then look at all of this that they have to share with you. I mean, they have the highlights in the park, how to get around the park, things to do in Grand Canyon. We wanna show you one important thing.
The videos are embedded right here. Let’s just take a moment and take a look at this video of the Bright Angel…Bright Angel Trail is the most popular hiking trail at the Grand Canyon. It can be utilized for day hikes or multi-day hikes, including a hike down to Phantom Ranch at the bottom of the canyon.
This is the trail used by the famous Grand Canyon Mules, and you will frequently encounter them along the trail. View the links in the description below for lock. So these videos are embedded in the travel guide and there is so much more, but that’s not all that the Grand Canyon Chamber has for you.
This year, they’ve also got the new passport to savings, and let’s jump into that and have Stoney tell us about the new free passport to savings.
I’m really excited to introduce you to the Grand Canyon Passport. This is the Grand Partners to Grand Savings. Now, when you upload your email to this, it automatically will give you a text right to your phone, and then you embed that logo right there.
And then you have all the grand savings or the Google Maps and everything. Let’s go ahead and open that up real quick so I can kind of give ’em a little look at. So right there they have Google Maps. As you’re traveling along, you can actually see how many, how far you are on your trail, and if you go down there, all these wonderful businesses are giving you discounts.
