Historic Downtown Peach Springs
Step right outside the Hualapai Lodge and you’ll find yourself in the middle of historic downtown Peach Springs. Two historic landmarks along this Route 66 town include the John Osterman Shell Station and Historic Peach Springs Trading Post, which was erected in 1928 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places on November 21, 2003.
The Walapai Market
The Walapai Market is also in downtown Peach Springs, just across the street from our lodge. This is the place to shop while staying in Peach Springs or traveling down Route 66. Pick up hot and cold lunches and beverages at the deli and stock up on snacks, treats, and other travel essentials to prepare for your day exploring the Grand Canyon.
Grand Canyon Caverns
The country’s largest dry caverns are just a few minutes away (11.9 miles) from the lodge. Explore Grand Canyon Caverns with one of five tour options, including a ghost and accessible tour. You’ll enter the cave—which is 200-300 feet below the surface—via a 21-story elevator and walk on a paved trail while viewing unique geological formations. Tickets start at $11 for children and $16 for adults, and vary based on the tour you choose.
Keepers of the Wild Nature Park
Take a leisurely stroll or guided safari through this animal sanctuary in Valentine, Arizona. Located just 16.5 miles away from our lodge, Keepers of the Wild Nature Park is home to a grizzly bear, lions, tigers, leopards, cougars, primates, birds, hoof stock, wallabies, and a variety of indigenous wildlife. You can learn about and get up close to each of these magnificent animals in their spacious natural habitats. Tickets start at $12 for children and $20 for adults.
