4,000 feet above the Grand Canyon floor. If the idea of walking on air over the Grand Canyon with at least some solid glass under your feet appeals, consider the newly-opened Skywalk on Grand Canyon West’s Eagle Point. Owned and operated by the Hualapai Tribe and only a two-hour drive from Las Vegas, this cantilevered projection is suspended 4,000 feet above the canyon floor and extends 70 feet out from the rim. Wew. A 6,000 square-foot visitor’s center is set on three levels and the views are way beyond stupendous.
Although only 120 gawkers are allowed at one time, Skywalk is open from dawn to dusk and costs a mere $25 per person. For in-depth info, click on their multi-lingual, very visual website: www.grandcanyonskywalk.com.
