For many, sunrise and sunset are the most romantic moments of the day. The Grand Canyon is the perfect place to savor these moments with your loved one.

Or, for one of the Grand Canyon’s most memorable experiences, take a journey aboard the Grand Canyon Railway. Make your anniversary or special date unforgettable and celebrate by riding in the Luxury Dome, complete with an elegant lounge, a sparkling toast, and expansive views through the full-length windows. For an especially exclusive experience, book a private Rail Baron Charter for an incredible journey you will remember for years to come.
