Best Places to Propose at the Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon is one of the most amazing geological landmarks in the world. The Colorado River and its tributaries have carved through layer after layer of rock – and now approximately two billion years of the Earth’s natural history is on display. If you’re looking for a truly magical place to ask that all-important question, it might not get any better than this. The views alone will take her breath away before you even have a chance to propose, which will make for a memorable moment. Here are the best places to propose at the Grand Canyon.
1. Grand Canyon Skywalk
The Grand Canyon Skywalk is actually outside of the national park and is located in Grand Canyon West, which is owned by the Hualapai Tribe. The Skywalk is a transparent, horseshoe-shaped bridge that extends beyond one of the canyon’s rims and gives you a magnificent view of the canyon. If you and your sweetheart love heights and an adrenaline rush, this see-through bridge 4,000 feet above the canyon might be the perfect spot for you. Just don’t look down when you’re on one knee with one of our diamond rings! You’ll literally be taking your relationship to new heights when you drop down on one knee and ask her to marry you.
2. In Flight
If you’ve been saving up for this day and want to do something truly special, consider taking your sweetheart on a plane or helicopter ride across the canyon. Do it at sunrise or sunset to get the full effect. As you’re oohing and ahing from the air, ask her to marry you over the headset (make sure you speak up so she can hear you). Just think about the moment after she says “yes,” as you’re spending your first moments as an engaged couple cruising through the air above one of the most beautiful landmarks in the world! For that reason alone, this is one of our best places to propose.
3. El Tovar
If you’re looking for a nice restaurant with views of the Canyon, then you should check out El Tovar. The dining room is built perpendicular to the rim of the Canyon, so some of the seats have a fantastic view. Make sure to call ahead of time and reserve a table that will let you take in the full extent of the Canyon as you eat dinner. For an even more magical moment, plan your dinner around when the sun will set. When the sky is full of color, pop the question!
Make sure you check out our selection of diamond rings before you head to the Canyon!
