    I want to take my wife to see the GC. Google says its 240 miles. Will that put me at a great location to see the canyon? I've only been there once and that was 40 years ago. I know it was on the South side but that's about it. Also, other cool things to do when we are there (choppers and a mule ride are out as far as my wife goes), hotels, dining, etc.

    Peter,
    look into the Grand Canyon Railway for a great trip up to the canyon. It departs from Williams which is cool old town with lotsa history and a killer old steak house called Rod's steak House right on an old stretch of historic route 66 . You can stay up at the Canyon at El Tovar hotel( as seen in National Lampoons Vacation) for a few days, do a hike in or make it a day trip. I'd stay up a few days personally, at least overnight anyways.

    The train is fun. It may be a bit cheesy but it's fun. Do take the overnight stay at the canyon otherwise the round trip in one day is too quick. You won;t see much of the canyon. But a night's stay like the other Jon said would do the ticket.

    Otherwise I'd plan on driving up and spending at least one night. There's fun stuff to do on the way up or back too. Check out things like Montezuma's castle or the Meteor crater near Winslow....

    I've only been to the north rim and it was a lot of fun. They have bison up there and it looks way different. The park has cabins right near the rim, but they are probably booked far in advance. We actually stayed in UT for that trip and hit up Bryce Canyon and Zion along with north rim.
