Adventure and Immersive Experiences Await Travelers
With today’s travelers continuing to show interest in exploring America’s national parks, including a promising increase of more than 6.5% visitors in 2022, demand for outdoor recreational experiences has never been stronger. People are eager to get back outside and are looking for well-rounded itineraries that inspire adventure and a change of pace from their day-to-day routines.
Just five minutes from the Grand Canyon, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, lies Squire Resort at the Grand Canyon located in Tusayan, Arizona. Formerly the Best Western Premier Grand Canyon Squire Inn, the property was acquired by global hospitality and entertainment company Delaware North in January 2023.
Squire Resort offers travelers the ideal launching pad from which to explore Grand Canyon National Park. As one of the closest lodging options to the park, the hotel provides visitors ready access to the park’s top attractions and sightseeing adventures.
The charming resort property represents the perfect place for travelers seeking immersive experiences – whether paddling down a river, hiking through breathtaking landscape or riding on the back of a sure-footed mule.
Visitors can bask in the magic of the Grand Canyon with an aerial tour in either an EcoStar or jet-powered helicopter, providing a one-of-a-kind experience of the most picturesque viewpoints.
- If exploring the destination by land is preferred, then guests can hop on a Jeep or Hummer tour and sit back and enjoy a chauffeured, open-air, scenic ride through the canyon. The guided excursion includes stops along some of the most popular lookout areas, where guests can discover views of dramatic rock formations and gorges dating back to prehistoric times.
- Whitewater river rafting is another remarkable way to experience the Grand Canyon in an active way. These journeys can range from day trips to multiday adventures where travelers experience water rafting like never before.
- Horses may be iconic to the American West, but the equine of choice at Grand Canyon has long been its hybrid relative, the mule. These animals combine the sure-footedness of a burro with the larger size and strength of a horse and have been carrying canyon visitors since the late 1800s. Expedition options range from overnight rides that go deep into the canyon, to two-hour vista rides that take you along the rim for stunning views.
- For those who love to hike, the rim-to-rim trek in Grand Canyon National Park is a classic bucket list adventure for the hearty souls. Another well-known option located just minutes away from Squire Resort is the popular Bright Angel trail. This 9.5-mile-long excursion takes explorers through billions of years of geological history and a spectacular blend of terrain among views of stunning rock formations and the Colorado River.
Squire Resort at the Grand Canyon is a desert paradise that appeals to every type of traveler. From family outings exploring wildlife and guided tours to challenging hikes and thrill-seeking helicopter rides, the memories travelers make during their stays at Squire Resort are sure to last a lifetime.
