Grand Canyon SkyWalk

This is NOT a part of Grand Canyon National Park. This is the west side of the actual canyon, but not part of the actual park. It is a private attraction owed by the Indian reservation that is located there. You can get tickets on I did the Gold Legacy package, which as far as I could see was the cheapest way to go on the Skywalk. It's $75 per person, but they throw in all these other things besides just the Skywalk. You park in their parking lot, and then you get to ride a bus shuttle to the 3 different locations included in your package. One is a fake cowboy sort of town, where you can learn how to lasso, ride in a horse-pulled wagon, you can pay to ride a mechnical bull (one of the few things you have to pay extra for), you can try panning for gold, etc. Kind of a cute place to spend a good half hour or so. The second location is a scenic look-out point. You can even hike up to a high point with a great view of the canyon. The third stop is the SkyWalk. Also at that stop there's also display of different styles of Native American homes. The package also includes a meal, and you have the option of using that ticket at any of the 3 locations. I went to the one at the cowboy town, and it was a delicious and filling southern/westen BBQ meal. As for the Skywalk itself - it really is more money than it should be, but if there's no other way to get there, then what else can you do? I mean, if you want to go on the Skywalk, then just suck it up and pay that $75. There's no point in grumbling about it. And hey, if you end up not caring for the Skywalk, then at least you got a meal and all those other things included! The Skywalk didn't go as far out into the canyon as I had thought. So really, you're not above the highest part of the canyon...but you still get the idea. When you get onto the Skywalk, you get in line and have a photographer take your photos, telling you what kind of poses to make. After that, you can hang out on the walk for as long as you want. Of course, they charge extra for the photos. I don't remember how much it was, but too much for me to buy it. Maybe $20? or less, I really can't remember. The only part that really bothered me is that you can't take your camera or phone or anything out onto the Skywalk - you have to lock it up in a locker before you go out. So they are definitely stingy in that way, that they want you to buy their photos. But again, no point in arguing with it. That's just the way it's gotta be. In the end, I paid the $75 because I wanted to go on the Skywalk itself, but what is most memorable is everything besides the Skywalk - the cowboy town, the hike, etc. Yes, it is a lot of money, but it's one of those things you only do once. Once you've done it, you've done it. I'm glad I did. :)
