The Grand Canyon is a 6-7 hour drive from Las Vegas. It’s a drive with an impressively expansive, flat, no-man’s-land feeling landscape. There are long stretches of road with few rest areas, so bring provisions. We made a pit stop at the Hoover Dam, which straddles Arizona and Nevada.
We didn’t beat the sun setting and didn’t have to pay the park vehicle entrance fee of $25 upon arrival as the staff was having a monthly meeting. FYI: If no one is at the entrance when you arrive and you don’t leave the grounds during your entire stay, then you pocket the $25 vehicle fee.
