Grand Canyon National Park in northwestern Arizona was officially designated a national park in 1919. It was named as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979. The park covers over 1 million acres and features the Grand Canyon, a gorge of the Colorado River. Over 6 million guests visited the park in 2016 alone. Two distinct public areas of the park include the North Rim and the South Rim. The North Rim is the more rugged of the two and visitors mostly take advantage of the lookout points and hiking trails. The South Rim includes Grand Canyon Village and is the more accessible of the two. Amenities of the South Rim include walking and driving tours and shuttle service.
