An economics graduate of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Mark Hamilton is the author of the Neothink Manuscripts, a collection of writings focused on subjects like economics, politics, religion, and business. In addition to his work with Neothink, Mark Hamilton is also a cofounder of Skywalk Development, LLC, the company responsible for the construction of the Grand Canyon Skywalk.

In addition to attractions like the Skywalk, the Grand Canyon offers its visitors many unique opportunities to appreciate the beauty of one of the seven natural wonders of the world. To get the most out of a trip to the Grand Canyon, visitors should consider the following tips.

1. To avoid large crowds and long wait times for burro rides and tours, consider visiting the Grand Canyon in the offseason. The busiest times for visitors are between the end of May and the beginning of September. The fewest number of visitors arrive between December and February.

2. Save money on overnight stays in the area by renting a campground rather than booking a hotel room. Weather permitting, camping provides a way for families to spend a weekend enjoying the beauty of the canyon at a fraction of the price.

3. Taking a shuttle bus around the South Rim is a great way to view the canyon, allowing visitors to save money on gas and relax as they take in the sights. As a bonus, all of the shuttle buses at Grand Canyon National Park allow visitors to ride free of charge.
