Tours from Tusayan

Forest near Tusayan

Surrounded by the tall Ponderosa Pine of the Coconino National Forest, Tusayan, Arizona (not to be confused with Tucson far to the South) is a small gateway community of Grand Canyon National Park's South Rim.  In fact, it is the closest gateway community to Grand Canyon as it is located just to the South of the main gate.  The town is very small with just 600 residents, five hotels and a few restaurants.  It is also home to Grand Canyon National Park Airport which is the hub for most scenic flights over the Grand Canyon.

What is the best time of year to visit Tusayan?

The hotel's in Tusayan typically fill up after the hotels in Grand Canyon Village are fully occupied.  So those who make reservations last minute can often find a room in Tusayan.  The community is located at 6,600 feet (2000m) in elevation so the climate is very similar to the towns of Flagstaff and Williams to the South.  Spring, Summer and Fall are the most popular time for tourists.  However, the Winter season is not crowded and visibility at the canyon is often better.  Snow and ice can be expected on the rim and in the upper canyon for most of the Winter months.

As previously stated there are only five hotels in Tusayan, and they are all fairly similar.  Three of them have onsite restaurants and bars.  Essentially these are your basic no frills hotels located just outside of the national park.
