The tiny town of Tusayan offers the closest hotels to outside Grand Canyon National Park. Located 1.5 miles south of the Grand Canyon’s South Entrance Station, Tusayan is sandwiched between Grand Canyon to the north and the Kaibab National Forest to the south. It’s the only private property anywhere near the South Rim’s popular sights. As such, Tusayan revolves entirely around Grand Canyon tourism, and its commercial district along highway 64 is filled with hotels, restaurants and the area’s only gas station. Just south of the commercial district is Grand Canyon Airport, which offers scenic flights and private planes. Note: From Tusayan to the Grand Canyon Visitor Center it’s about a 15-minute drive.
