Where are canyons located in the United States?

The Grand Canyon is located in northern Arizona and is one of the great tourist attractions in the United States. Carved over several million years by the Colorado River, the canyon attains a depth of over 1.6 km (1 mile) and 446 km (277 miles) long.

Also asked, how is a valley similar to a canyon?

Both are depressions in the landscape, often formed by the movement of water such as rivers. Often the terms are used interchangeably, but most geologists will tell you the major difference between them is that canyons are deeper, more narrow and with steep sides.
