Views on the Grand Canyon: 2% have unfavorable opinion on park

It is one of the seven natural wonders of the world, Arizona is even called the Grand Canyon state.

But can you believe there are some people out there in Arizona who don't like the Grand Canyon?

That is the findings of a survey by public policy polling.

Most people do indeed like the Grand Canyon, but there are two percent of people out there who say they have an unfavorable view of the canyon.

So what is not to like?

94$ of those surveyed had a favorable opinion, that's reassuring, but 2% had an unfavorable view.

So what did Valley residents think?

"Uh yeah actually talk about the Grand Canyon, it is the biggest hole in the world," said Brandon Malone.

"I like the Grand Canyon, you know what I'm saying, it's very useful if you like rock climbing," said James Hardy.

"The way the rocks are shaped and when it rains," said Allana Lomeli.

"If I had to say, favorable? It's a pretty cool place, pretty chill you know," said Xavier Cabrera.

"My aunt says it's unfavorable; she said it was inaccessible for people with disabilities," said "Edna."

Actually the lodges do comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. So how could 2% be knocked out by this place?

"I have no idea how that could possible be because the Grand Canyon is one of the seven natural wonders of the year, it is one of the most amazing experiences," said Sherry Henry with the Arizona Office of Tourism.

That may be, but some people are still going to need convincing.

"I'm not really into anything natural in the United States, the parks, I don't even go to Disneyland or Disney World," said an anonymous man.
