The best place for shopping in and around the Grand Canyon is the Grand Canyon Village Marketplace, where Forbes Travel Guide editors recommend you take a break from the heat and outdoor activities. Located near the start of the Bright Angel Trail, the market offers various shopping, dining and lodging options — it is a grocer, department store and camping equipment rental site all in one. For memorabilia, head to Verkamp’s Visitor center, a historic home (one of the canyon’s oldest) that was remodeled to serve as a gift shop, bookstore and museum. You can also find authentic Native American handicrafts at the historic Hopi House and fine gifts at the El Tovar Hotel gift shop.
