Grand Canyon, Arizona

Carved by the Colorado River, the Grand Canyon is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

Luxe Way: Amangiri

Made of concrete and stone in sand-colored tones that blend into the desert canyons and plateaus of southern Utah, this 34-suite resort is a two-and-a-half-hour drive from the Grand Canyon. It's also just 15 minutes from Lake Powell, which has nearly 2,000 miles of shoreline; the resort can arrange for geologist- and naturalist-led hikes as well as snorkeling and diving excursions to underwater rock carvings.
