Spring Breakaway at Grand Canyon National Park
A Spring Breakaway Package at two South Rim lodges has been announced by Xanterra, the operator of lodges, resturants and activities in Grand Canyon National Park.
For $139 per night, guests receive accommodations in a Maswik Lodge North room or a Yavapai Lodge East room, one breakfast for two and a Harvey Car motorcoach tour to Hermits Rest or a Sunrise tour for two. The package is available Feb. 9 – March 5, 2009 at Maswik Lodge and March 6 – 26, 2009 at Yavapai Lodge. Room rates for overnight accommodations only are normally priced $153 -$170 per night. Rates do not include taxes.
In addition the package also includes a coupon for 10 percent off purchases between $50 and $150 and 20 percent off purchases of more than $150 in Xanterra gift shops. A welcome stimulus to souvenir shoppers.
Visitors can book their Spring Breakaway online by entering the promotional code SPRING or by calling toll-free 1-888-297-2757 or 1-303-297-2757 from outside the United States.
Note from Nancy: Spring is our favorite time to visit Grand Canyon National Park. One may encounter snow on the rim but hike just a few hundred feet below the rim and you’ll want to be in shirt sleeves. It can be quite warm at the bottom even in March. Easter sunrise over the canyon inspires. Plan your “Breakaway” now.
