My husband and I are having a disagreement that I would love to have your input on. We have three young children 2, 6, and 7. He is wanting to take a trip to the Grand Canyon. I think the kids are too young. What do you think?

Depends on the family, I guess.

The hubby and you will love it tremendously, and kids at that age will think its just a big hole in the ground. They'd rather go and get ice cream at the nearest Dairy Queen!

That's what I thought. I'm worried that someone might "fall in". Is that crazy?

No - not crazy. You just need to be mindful of yourself and your children.

Very unique question, Memphis Mom . . .

Depending on your kids, it is possible the 6 and 7 year olds may enjoy and even learn something from a well supervised visit, however, the 2 year old would be clueless.

As for safety . . . your concerns are definitely valid as kids do fall into The Canyon far too frequently.

Good Luck

Yeah, I'd say it's too dangerous for the little one...

My parents are of the opinion that there's way better destinations for kids in the Four Corners area.

Default Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon is truly a wonder that you and hubby would enjoy. However,the kids would want to know how soon are we leaving and wanting to go to Bedrock, and amusement area nearby. The canyon is NOT fenced, people do occasionally fall. I would not take children that young there myself, you would probably be a nervouse wreck and not be able to enjoy it yourself! There are tons of great places to visit in Arizona that the whole family can enjoy, Visit Arizona and the
Arizona Highways sites can give you a good idea of things to see and do in Arizona.
