Traveling from Kingman, AZ to the Grand Canyon
Kingman Arizona is a small city along historic route 66 that’s on the way to both the West Rim and South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park for visitors coming from Las Vegas, Nevada. Kingman is located about 1.5 hours from Lake Mead National Recreation Area, Grand Canyon West and the Grand Canyon Skywalk, so for visitors heading to one of these destinations Kingman is a great layover because it offers more options for amenities, lodging and restaurants. The small town of Meadview, AZ and Grand Canyon West also offer lodging and restaurants, but the options are limited. Kingman is also a good place to stop if you’re heading to the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park, especially if it’s later in the day and you don’t have lodging reserved inside the park, or gateway town of Tusayan, AZ.
