Last year, National Geographic rated an Arizona national park as one of the best places to visit in the new year. With an assortment of things to do in the Grand Canyon, we've found one of the most extreme ones. There's a glass skywalk that hovers 4,000 feet above the ground, giving you unreal views. 

The Eagle Point Skywalk is located at the West Rim of the canyon. For $39 per person, you'll get access to the West Rim, three viewpoint areas, and transportation on the shuttle. 

The shuttle will take you to and from each viewpoint area. 

You also have the option of adding on the skywalk for $20. It's a 10-foot wide, horseshoe-shaped platform that extends out 70 feet from the rim's cliff. 

Conquer your fear of heights and step out on the glass bridge that is perched 4,000 feet above the ground. 

We recommend making a morning visit here to beat the crowds. There's also a restaurant on-site if you'd prefer to dine with a view. Either way, it'll be unforgettable. 

Cameras and cell phones aren't permitted on the glass extension, so plan accordingly. 

Since you're unable to take your own photos, you have the option of purchasing some printed ones for $16 each or a USB with photos for $69.90. They'll be taken by professional photographers on the bridge.

There is also an assortment of hiking trails that you can tackle. 

Whether you're visiting for the first or third time, the Grand Canyon is a truly spectacular sight.
