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 $99, you get one ticket to the Grand Canyon West Rim bus tour from Grand Canyon By Bus (a $189.99 value). Admission is free for children ages 2 and younger.
Grand Canyon By Bus's approximately 11.5-hour Grand Canyon West Rim bus tour sends explorers over the Hoover Dam Bridge and Lake Mead on an excursion to the awe-inspiring Grand Canyon. Visitors ride a deluxe touring coach, spotting big horn sheep, viewing a 900-year-old forest of joshua trees, and tracing messages to passing birds in the condensation on the windows. Constructed in the late 1950s to stage a shuttle landing on Mars, the Grand Canyon spikes with red and orange rock formations, some of which are nearly two billion years old. A barbecue lunch, prepared by members of the indigenous Hualapai Tribe, sates bellies whose emptiness rivals the canyon itself. Tour-goers can hop off the bus to explore the canyon rim and purchase curios sold by the Hualapai.
