E - El Tovar
El Tovar is a hotel that is in Grand Canyon National Park. It features guest rooms as well as a restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
A view of it from across the area.
A little information about it from its early days.
When we visited the Grand Canyon in October, we had lunch at El Tovar. I had visited the Grand Canyon about 5 times since my first visit in 1984 but this was the first time we ever ate at the restaurant. We both got salads, they were delicious.
Are you a camper? Do you think you would have enjoyed spending time at the Grand Canyon in a tent before El Tovar was built?
I definitely am not a camper, I would have waited until such a facility was available rather than sleep in a tent.
