About this Episode

If you were looking for somewhere that you could arrive in your private plane or helicopter, stay in an RV one night, a motel the next, enjoy some great food, visit some dinosaurs, have a glass of wine or beer in a prehistoric cave, some more good food and delicious giant pies, hunt some ghosts, then finish off the last night sleeping in one of the worlds most unique hotel rooms 220 feet under the ground? Stop searching because we found the only place where you can experience all this and more, its the Grand Canyon Caverns in Peach Springs, Arizona. This world class attraction is located off the Historic Route 66, one hour west of Williams and an hour or so south of the Grand Canyons south rim. We had the privilege of sitting down with John McEnulty, Partner Grand Canyon Caverns, to hear the story of the caverns. We enjoyed the hospitality of John and his staff as we toured the property above and below ground. While sharing a meal with John we learned some history of the cavern, how it came into being, along with the features and improvements that have been added since John and his partners obtained ownership. After our time with John we took a tour of the amazing underground caverns complete with bar, hotel room, and fallout shelter. Yes a fallout shelter, in the event of doomsday above ground you’ll be equipped with enough supplies for you and 2000 of your closest friends to survive for weeks underground. So enjoy this episode and be sure to check out the cavern grounds on your next trip down Route 66. You will not be disappointed.
