Until mankind first stepped outside in 1934, nature was thought to be a fanciful myth, like yogurt or the clutch hitter. Spend some time frolicking through the fresh air of truth with today's Groupon: for $89, you get one ticket to the Grand Canyon South Rim bus tour from Grand Canyon Tour & Travel (a $179.99 value). Admission is free for children younger than 2.
Grand Canyon Tour & Travel's adventurous pathfinders shepherd wayfarers on expeditions past the churning waters of the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead and onward toward the majestic gorges of the Grand Canyon. Passengers embark on the 14.5-hour Grand Canyon South Rim bus tour in deluxe transportation before turning their ocular orbs toward the windows to soak in the passing landscape and hitchhiking cacti. After gazing at the electrically charged falls of the Hoover Dam, passengers ride their motor-powered steed into Arizona, where they pause for lunch at the historic Grand Canyon Railway. Visitors can wander through the railway museum and visit the gift shop to pick up a souvenir railroad tie or steam-powered ascot before hopping back onto the bus. The Grand Canyon National Park mesmerizes picture-snapping fingers with striated stone cliffs as the bus halts at five awe-inspiring locations, including the canyon's deepest and widest points, the most panoramic vantage, and a cliff-side crop circle of Wayne Newton's headshot. A brief snack and stretch stopover on the return trip relieves cooped-up commuters prior to return in Las Vegas at approximately 8:45 p.m.
