Why You Shouldn’t Miss This
Located in Grand Canyon West, the Skywalk is the closest, most accessible section of the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas. Also called the “Glass Bridge,” the structure is comprised of 44 glass-deck panels. An engineering marvel, Skywalk gives visitors the chance to stand nearly 4,000 feet over the Colorado River Valley. Not convinced it’s safe? The Skywalk is strong enough to hold the weight of seventy 747 passenger jets!
