The Grand Canyon was ranked No. 1 by U.S. News and World Report on Best Cheap Summer Vacations and Best Places to Visit in Arizona. Hotel rooms inside the park can get pretty expensive, which is why many tourists opt for camping. The park’s free shuttle bus service will also help you save money. Popular free attractions to explore within the Grand Canyon include Grand Canyon Village, North Rim, Havasu Falls and Lees Ferry. Visitors can find better deals at the end of August.
