Freedom Park Navy Museum

If you would like to combine the simple natural pleasures of the outdoors with the intellectual stimulation of well-presented historical information, then the Freedom Park Navy Museum is definitely for you. This is a wonderful place for people of all ages to visit and it is open 7 days per week from 8.00am – 8.00pm providing that the weather is good. The park is a popular attraction with groups of school children, families or just people who are into naval history and would like to learn more. The park features multiple naval vessels such as the USS Hazard – this mighty warship served in Pearl Harbour – and the USS Marlin, one of the smallest submarines in the world. Being able to get right up close to these mighty vessels is something you must truly experience! Adding to the excitement, you even get the chance to go inside them to see what it would be like for those brave naval personnel who served on-board. To get the best information possible during your visit to the Freedom Park Navy Museum you should take a guided tour. These are available from Friday to Sunday between the hours of 10.00am and 3.00pm. You should be aware that these tours are from April through to November, so if you visit outside of these months you will not be able to avail of one. It is also possible to arrange private tours for groups, and for naval history enthusiasts these are really worthwhile. Admission to the park is free. If you would like to bring a group to the Freedom Park Navy Museum, Arrow Stage Lines...

The Grand Canyon (Arizona)

The Grand Canyon is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the US (named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979) and each year many thousands of people visit this stunning geological formation. The Grand Canyon itself is over 17 million years old and stretches for an almost unbelievable length of 277 miles – and in some places it is up to 18 miles wide! There are many places along the Grand Canyon that are excellent viewing points. If you want to get the best vantage to view this wonder of the natural world, Arrow Stage Lines will take you there in comfort, safety and style! When you travel to the Grand Canyon on a motorcoach trip you will be taken to places such as the South Rim where you can reach the top of the Tanner Trail. This is a trail that is much-loved by hikers who want to see amazing views of the Canyon. Coach parties who are looking to follow the trail can park at the South Rim car park and continue their journey from here. It is also possible to take a helicopter over the Grand Canyon so that you can see it from a bird’s eye point of view, although this experience is definitely not for the faint-hearted! If you are feeling really brave, you might want to take a stroll out on the Skywalk. This transparent horseshoe-shaped bridge will give you the giddy thrill of being suspended right over the edge of the Canyon, and it required nerves of steel! Many will take a trip to theGrand Canyon as part of a Las Vegas vacation, we definitely suggest you do the same – adding a visit to this...
