Located about 2 miles away from the visitor’s center the Grand Canyon Historic Village is a wonderful place to visit. The entire village was planned by the National Park Service making it one of NPS’s largest planning examples. The village contains many lodges to stay, free shuttle bus stands and many buildings that are of historic significance like Santa Fe Railway station, El Tovar, Buckey O’Neill’s Cabin and Red Horse Cabin. These were once salons and studio houses built during the early 20th century. Other than that the place is always bustling with some or the other activity like hiking, cycling, bird watching, Ranger walks, Mule trips and many more. One of the great features of the canyon is the one-time fee you pay at the entrance and on the inside almost everything is free except for the lodging.
