When seeking to experience nature on its grandest scale, look no further than Grand Canyon Lodge North Rim inside Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona. Sitting at an elevation of more than 8,000 feet, the comparatively tranquil North Rim gets just one-tenth of the visitation of the South Rim and is known for its recreational activities including hiking trails, mule rides and exploring the local flora and fauna.

As a part of this scenic spot since 1928, the Grand Canyon Lodge North Rim, open seasonally from May 15 – Oct. 15, sits just above the canyon with a variety of cabin and motel room choices and dining options.

Cabins at the Grand Canyon Lodge North Rim sit close to the rim, while motel rooms are located within a short walking distance from the lodge. Accommodations offered at the Grand Canyon Lodge North Rim include the following:

  • Western cabins are nestled in the pines and offer two queen-sized beds, a full bath and a front porch.
  • Pioneer cabins sleep up to six people in two bedrooms separated by a ¾ bath with a shower. These cabins offer a queen, a full and a twin bunk bed.
  • Rustic Frontier cabins sleep up to three people with one double bed and one single sized bed. The rooms include a ¾ bathroom with a shower.

All rooms include ceiling fans, standard-view and rim-side views.

The Grand Canyon Lodge North Rim offers several dining choices from quick bites to restaurant options:

  • The Main Lodge Dining Room is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and includes regional dishes as well as cuisine from the 1930s. Offering the freshest and healthiest ingredients, the Main Lodge Dining room serves free-range poultry products, observes the Monterey Seafood Watch program for seafood offerings and serves organic salad greens and pasta.
  • The Coffee Shop is open from 5:30 to 10:30 a.m. for light breakfast options including breakfast burritos, assorted muffins, scones and cinnamon rolls. Also, offered is freshly brewed espresso, cappuccino and coffee.
  • The Roughrider Saloon is available from 11:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. for a cold beverage and assorted snack options. The Saloon captures a bit of the history of the area and provides and alternative dining option for dinner.
  • The Deli in the Pines is open daily from 10:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. for lunch and dinner and offers pre-made salads and sandwiches and other carry-out options.

ABOUT GRAND CANYON LODGE – NORTH RIM
Grand Canyon Lodge – North Rim is the only lodging inside the National Park on the North Rim. Located at Bright Angel Point, the Lodge was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1987. The original Lodge was constructed in 1928 and burned in 1932. The current Lodge was rebuilt in 1937 using as much of the original structure as possible. Here guests may enjoy the quiet serenity of the North Rim while enjoying comfortable guest rooms and cabins.  Our cabins were constructed in the 1930’s and 1940’s.  While restrooms and showers have since been added, these cabins retain their original rustic charm.  To this day, not one of the cabins has a television or radio. The Lodge Dining Room serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. It features regional cuisine; all-natural beef and poultry products are antibiotic and hormone free and the wine list showcases American organic selections available by the glass. Meanwhile the Gift Shop purveys Grand Canyon souvenirs, clothing and accessories. Free self-parking, bus, truck and RV parking are available.

LEGENDARY ROCK BAND THE WHO ANNOUNCE SIX SHOWS AT THE COLOSSEUM AT CAESARS PALACE IN MAY

LEGENDARY ROCK BAND THE WHO
ANNOUNCE SIX SHOWS AT THE COLOSSEUM
AT CAESARS PALACE MAY 5 – 16, 2020

Legendary rock band The Who have announced they’ll be moving on in 2020 with more tour dates. Not quite ready to close the books on their acclaimed MOVING ON! TOUR, singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist/songwriter Pete Townshend pair with local symphony orchestras across North America for a once-in-a-lifetime rock experience, as hailed by critics. The band will return to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace for a series of six shows May 5, 7, 9, 12, 14 and 16, 2020.

Tickets starting at $69 go on sale to the general public starting Friday, Dec. 13 at 10 a.m. PST at ticketmaster.com or in-person at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace box office. The Who fan club members will have access to a presale beginning Wednesday, Dec. 4 at 10 a.m. PST. 

Citi is the official presale credit card for The Who’s MOVING ON! TOUR. As such, Citi cardmembers will have access to purchase presale tickets beginning Monday, Dec. 9 at 10 a.m. PST through Citi EntertainmentSM. For complete presale details visit www.citientertainment.com.

In addition, Caesars Rewards members, Caesars Entertainment’s loyalty program, as well as Live Nation and Ticketmaster customers will have access to a presale beginning Wednesday, Dec. 11 at 10 a.m. PST. All presales end Thursday, Dec. 12 at 10 p.m. PST. All shows are scheduled to begin at 8 p.m., with the exception of the show on May 16, which will begin at 9:30 p.m.

As always, the upcoming shows will feature The Who’s full live band comprised of guitarist/backup singer Simon Townshend, keyboardist Loren Gold, bassist Jon Button, drummer Zak Starkey and backing vocals by Billy Nicholls along with orchestra conductor Keith Levenson, lead violinist Katie Jacoby and lead cellist Audrey Snyder, passionately delivering The Who’s many classics. As well as some songs from The Who’s brand new album, titled WHO, their first full-length album in 13 years, available everywhere this Friday, December 6. The recent single ‘All This Music Must Fade,’ has also drawn praise as “The Who’s defiant post-script” by The New York Times. A recent Rolling Stone feature proclaimed the album a worthy addition to their canon, noting the above-mentioned track and “Street Song,” citing “Daltrey’s anguished vocal” as “among the more moving performances of his career.”


Local symphonies will again be joining The Who for the 2020 shows, putting their indelible stamp on the music’s timelessness in support of Roger and Pete’s trademark emotional power. The 2019 spring and fall legs of the MOVING ON! TOUR generated the most unanimous outpouring of acclaim from critics and fans of any live rock show this year, winning raves across North America for the orchestral dynamic as well as the duo’s cathartic rock firepower and intimate acoustic numbers. “They’re not getting older. They’re getting better. You better, you better, you bet.” hailed the Worcester Telegram, with Pollstar Magazine affirming “Daltrey is in peak form, and so is Townshend, lavishing his trademarked windmill guitar motion.” 

Produced by Live Nation, The Who’s North American MOVING ON! TOUR brought the band’s iconic brand of incomparable rock through 29 cities, including a rollicking sold-out barn-burner in Boston’s famed Fenway Park, and a memorable Seattle show where Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder joined them onstage for a rousing version of “The Punk And the Godfather,” with Eddie’s wife and daughter in attendance.  The tour also wound down in grand style, with a series of October shows at LA’s historic Hollywood Bowl, the first time the band played three dates at the landmark venue during one touring cycle.

For more information about The Who’s 2020 dates, visit LiveNation.com or thewho.com.

$1 from each ticket sold for the MOVING ON! TOUR will benefit Teen Cancer America .

THE WHO

The Who are one of the top three greatest rock legacies in music history. Their music provoked explosive change and spanned what many critics declare is rock’s most elastic creative spectrum, with Pete Townshend’s songwriting moving between raw, prosaic, conceptual, and expressively literate. Their visionary sense of stagecraft headed by Roger Daltrey’s soaring vocal prowess is topped off by the band’s blistering rhythm section. With both Roger and Pete delivering their memoirs in recent years (Pete’s Who I Am was released to much acclaim in 2012, and Roger’s autobiography, Thanks A Lot Mr. Kibblewhite; My Story, was embraced by critics in 2018) it’s fitting that the two remaining WHO members have shared their incredible legacy in literary fashion, for few bands have had a more lasting impact on the rock era and the reverberating pop culture than The Who.

Emerging in the mid-1960s as a new and incendiary force in rock n’ roll, their brash style and poignant storytelling garnered them one of music’s most passionate followings, with the legendary foursome blazing a searing new template for rock, punk, and everything after. Inducted into the Rock n’ Roll Hall Of Fame in 1990, the band has sold more than 100 million records worldwide, placing 27 top-forty singles in the United States and United Kingdom and earning 17 Top Ten albums, including the 1969 groundbreaking rock opera Tommy, 1971’s pummeling Live At Leeds, 1973’s Quadrophenia and 1978’s Who Are You.  The Who debuted in 1964 with a trio of anthems “I Can’t Explain,” “The Kids Are Alright” and “My Generation.” Since then they have delivered to the world hits such as “Baba O’Riley,” “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” “Pinball Wizard,” Who Are You,” and,” You Better You Bet.”

In 2008, they became the first rock band ever to be awarded the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors. The Who has performed all over the world including global music events for the Super Bowl XLIV Halftime Show in 2010 and closing the London 2012 Summer Olympics. The Who continued their charity work by playing a concert in January 2011 to raise money for trials of a new cancer treatment called PDT. In December 2012 they performed at the Hurricane Sandy Benefit in New York. In January 2014 they played a set on the U.S. television special to support the charity Stand Up To Cancer. In November 2012 Daltrey, with Townshend at his side, launched Teen Cancer America. The charity is now established in the USA, with offices in Los Angeles and devoted Teen Cancer units being opened in hospitals all over the U.S. TCA’s work has impacted over 5,000 young people and their families nationwide during the last six years.

RAIL EXPLORERS, PEDAL-POWERED RAIL BIKE EXPERIENCE MINUTES FROM
LAS VEGAS, ANNOUNCES 2019 OPENING

After several successful seasons of springtime operations, Rail Explorers, the family-friendly, outdoor-adventure attraction featuring pedal-powered rail bikes, will begin year-round tours in Southern Nevada on Oct. 11. Located in historic Boulder City, Nevada—just minutes from the Las Vegas Strip en route to Hoover Dam—Rail Explorers offers exhilarating, guided excursions in two- or four-seat rail bikes along the same tracks used during construction of the dam.

Las Vegas tours include three memorable options, including the Southwest Ramble, a four-mile downhill pedal-powered daytime ride; the Sunset Tour, a picturesque downhill ride in the evening as the sun sets behind the River Mountains; and the Evening Lantern Ride, a one-of-a-kind experience illuminated by the glow from the moon and stars. All rides start at the Nevada State Railroad Museum and continue downhill to Railroad Pass. Each tour also includes a nostalgic ride back to the top of the hill in one of the museum’s historic trains, along with free museum entry.

“Our charismatic, knowledgeable guides lead every Rail Explorers tour, ensuring guests enjoy not only the majestic desert scenery, but also learn fascinating insights along the way,” explained Mary Joy Lu, chief executive officer, Rail Explorers. “Rail bikes provide a truly distinctive way to explore this extraordinarily scenic and historic area.”

Rail Explorer rail bikes have four steel wheels, hydraulic disc brakes, pedals for each seat and are comfortable, fun and easy to ride for guests of any age or ability. Although rail bikes require pedaling, the magic of steel wheels on steel rails makes the experience distinctive from riding a regular bicycle.

Tandem Rail Explorer (up to two riders) or Quad Rail Explorer rail bikes (up to four riders) are available on each tour offered. Tandem Explorer tours are $85 and Quad Explorers are $150; a single rider is $45. Groups of ten or more people receive a 10 percent discount. All Nevada residents receive a 15 percent “locals” discount off the standard tour price. Group, private, team building, educational and special-topic tours are available.

ABOUT RAIL EXPLORERS
Just 20 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip is an exhilarating four-mile downhill ride where guests can experience the beauty of the Nevada desert, the River Mountains and the Eldorado Valley on a 1.5 hour scenic journey through Boulder City, Nevada. Adventurers of all ages ride the rails on custom-built bikes with stops at the Nevada State Railroad Museum and Railroad Pass.
