Description

Daredevil types will get a kick out of El Tovar, located just 20 feet from the Grand Canyon’s plunging Southern Rim. (Pop-culture fiends, meanwhile, may recognize it from National Lampoon’s Vacation.) Built in 1905, the Swiss-chalet-like building incorporates Native American motifs, hand-built furniture, plus original drawings from its architect, Charles Whittlesey. The hotel was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1987, and has hosted such guests as Bill Clinton, Elizabeth Taylor, and Paul McCartney (who allegedly had to be told to keep his piano playing down during his stay).
