The South Rim
The West RimThe West Rim of the Grand Canyon is the most accessible to Las Vegas. The West Rim is not a part of the Grand Canyon National Park and is instead a part of the Hualapai Indian Tribal Lands. It is home to the Grand Canyon Skywalk, which is the main attraction of the West Rim. The Skywalk allows guests to walk 70 feet out over the Grand Canyon with a glass floor below. Near the West Rim is Havasu Falls, one of five world-famous blue-green waterfalls.
