The Grand Canyon was carved with water out of uplifted rock from the Colorado Plateau. This wonder of nature has been bringing people to the region for thousands of years to visit and stand in awe of the beauty. The canyon stretches for 277 miles, it is 18-miles wide at its broadest point, and it reaches down for a mile before it reaches the Colorado River. When you visit, you'll need some things to do.
The El Tovar restaurant located in the El Tovar Hotel is the place people visiting the Grand Canyon go to for local food. It has a nice comfortable cocktail lounge where you can wait for your table. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The cocktail lounge is open from 11:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. daily.
