Families tend to plan not only fun trips during the summer but also something that is a learning experience for the younger members.  A popular choice is exploring some of America´s National Parks with Grand Canyon being high on the list.

The best way to view the picturesque region right to its final destination is to hop aboard the Grand Canyon Railway. This is a steam and diesel-powered train that was a restored 1923 Harriman coach and roars through to Grand Canyon National Park on the same route as it did in bygone days.

The train tour commences from Williams, Arizona right to the Grand Canton. The entire journey takes a mere 2 1/2 hours covering 65 miles.

The staff offers informative tidbits and live entertainment including singing and playing instruments, putting on shows for all passengers.

Instead of heading back in the next train, plan on staying on-site at the El Tovar Hotel. Since the hotel's opening in 1905, film stars and high profile celebrities from around the world have been flocking to it. The El Tovar Hotel is even registered as a National Historic Landmark. It is well worth to make the most of the beautiful surrounding and get aboard the train back to the origin the next day.

Active types should always avoid a bag that weighs them down. One designer bag that can leave a woman hands free to strut among nature's bounty is an authentic Louis Vuitton Pochette Twin PM.

This pre-owned pochette is so versatile it can be carried and look sharp with wearing sneakers or heels, casual or dressy. Crafted as a flap bag in the signature Louis Vuitton monogram canvas and natural cowhide trim, it opens and closes with ease via a snap magnetic closure.

The used Louis Vuitton is small enough and will never get in the way during any activity. The shoulder strap of the Louis Vuitton Pochette can be removed completely for a stylish clutch.

The interior is lined in neutral colored Alcantara material that is super plush and contains enough space for necessary essentials.

The authentic Louis Vuitton Monogram Pochette Twin PM is convenient for a woman on the go like Hillary Duff or for any mom to remain relatively hands-free while sightseeing the natural wonders of the U.S.
