Grand Canyon Skywalk

This cantilever bridge stretches out over the Grand Canyon. It has a half-circle shape, so visitors can look straight down without any obstructions blocking the view. The drop to the canyon floor is around 4,000 feet. Sightseers can look right over the edge or they can peer straight down through the glass floor.

Despite the seemingly precarious perch on which it sits, the skywalk is made to withstand extreme weather. The bridge was built to hold up in high winds and harsh winter weather.
