How to Get to the Grand Canyon from the Las Vegas Airport via Rental Car
The South and North Rims of the Grand Canyon are part of the Grand Canyon National Park. Entrance to the Grand Canyon National Park costs $30 a vehicle for 7 days.
The South Rim of the Grand Canyon is located 273 miles west of the Las Vegas Airport, about a 4.5-hour drive along well-maintained paved roads. Parking can become a challenge at the South Rim during the busiest summer months.
The North Rim of the Grand Canyon is located 274 miles west of the airport, along Interstate highway 15 and then a series of winding paved roads. The North Rim is only open May 15 through October 15 due to heavy snowfall.
The West Rim of the Grand Canyon and its famous Skywalk is just 120 miles west of the Las Vegas Airport. It is located in the Hualapai Indian Reservation and is not a part of the Grand Canyon National Park. Entrance costs around $50 per person, with additional costs to enter the Skywalk. The last part of the journey is along an unpaved gravel road, so be sure to check with your rental car company before disembarking!
