Eagle Point features a Native American village which offers live performances by members of Native American tribes throughout the day. The village also has Native American shelters, jewelry and crafts. Eagle Point is the site of the Grand Canyon Skywalk, one of the West Rim's biggest attractions.

The Grand Canyon Skywalk is a horseshoe-shaped glass bridge. The bridge, made from reinforced glass, allows visitors to look down and see the canyon floor 4,000 feet below.

Visitors to Guano Point can view remnants of a tram that led to guano mines. Guano Point also offers a short hike, shopping at the Hualapai Market and a restaurant.

Hualapai Ranch is a western-themed location. Activities include horseback riding, roping and learning how to draw a six-shooter. Hualapai Ranch also has cabins where visitors can stay overnight.

The West Rim is closer to Las Vegas than any other part of the Grand Canyon, so visitors from that location often drive to the West Rim. A variety of tour options are also available, including bus, helicopter and airplane tours.
