Phoenix, Arizona is a tourist destination on its own, so when you decide to base there for your trip to the Grand Canyon, there’s little to be disappointed about. It is farther away than some other Grand Canyon pit stops, but if the canyon is only part of what you want to experience on your vacation, Phoenix can offer all the nightlife, culture and fine dining cities do still within shooting distance of the natural wonder you came to see.
Because of its distance from the canyon, you’re more likely to find tours inclusive not only of the Grand Canyon but other Arizona and west-based interests there. Largely it’s simply a destination spot close enough for those who want to experience the canyon without giving up the creature comforts of city life.
