Williams, Arizona - The first panoramic sight of the Grand Canyon can be a moving experience, but it can be challenging to take in the sights with the throngs of tourists all vying for the “perfect” view in the spring and summer months. The Grand Canyon in the winter is the secret season, where from November through February, this natural wonder is surprisingly lively at the canyon’s South Rim, which is open year-round (Grand Canyon’s North Rim closes to traffic in the winter).

This year, travelers can check this trip to one of the “Natural Wonders of the World” off their bucket list without emptying the bank account, with many savings at Grand Canyon Lodges located at the South Rim.
