Tour the Grand Canyon North Rim Headquarters and learn a thing or two about this gorgeous attraction. The HQ is a historic district that features service structures and administrative facilities, established in the late 19-20s and early 1930s.
There are two sections at the district, both of which have residences that capture the heritage of the region. The western side has an office, barn, and several maintenance buildings, while the eastern side has a garage and ranger station. A closer look at these structures shows a much older residence, which is a one-story house with its characteristic gabled roof. Visiting this part of the district is like taking a glimpse of its rich past.
Away from the rich historical district, there are many activities to engage in for an unforgettable trip out of town. Take a scenic drive along the North Rim. The rugged beauty of this remote area is best appreciated when you take a leisurely drive. Along the route, there are several spots where you can stop to marvel at Cape Royal and Point Imperial.
Make sure you spend some time at the Visitor Centre as well. It is located right next to the parking lot at the Grand Canyon Lodge. The center has helpful information on the park, maps, exhibits, and a bookstore to get your adventure started!
Wind up with a restful night at the Grand Canyon Lodge. This historic lodge is a befitting place to retreat to after a day’s adventure of the Grand Canyon North Rim.
