Wake up on Christmas morning and experience the sunrise over one of the world’s natural wonders – the Grand Canyon! The snow dusted monuments of the Canyon, contrasted with its multi-hued layers and sheer enormity, are a sight to behold. While in Sedona enjoy live western music with a holiday twist. Finally, enjoy a field trip to historic Jerome, once Arizona’s largest copper mining town and now a thriving artist colony.
