Pet Resort Open to Grand Canyon Visitors

Bits and Bytes

Feel like hoofing it along the Grand Canyon National Park scenic trails this summer? That seems just dandy, but what about your furry four-legged friends? Confining a dog or cat in a car parked under the hot Arizona sun (or anywhere for that matter) is a death sentence, and certain areas of the park don't allow leash-led pets. Instead, check your furry travelers into the Grand Canyon Railway (GCR) Pet Resort.

 

Located just 65 miles south of the world-famous abyss in Williams, AZ, the GCR Pet Resort is not just open to guests of the GCR Hotel or passengers on the GCR Train, which travels daily to the Grand Canyon, but is also open to the general public.

 

Rates starting at just $15 afford your dog or a cat their private indoor/outdoor space, the cleanest air in northern Arizona, and a breathtaking view. With all these luxuries, pet parents need not feel guilty while visiting the 277-mile long gorge that was carved out by the Colorado River some 17 million years ago. Just don't forget to bring all of your pet's vaccine paperwork and their favorite food, snacks, and toys to the Pet Resort.

 

Who knows? Maybe we'll all get lucky and Robbie Knievel will decide to do another canyon jump this year.
