We love to get to the South Rim, work our way over by Bright Angel Trailhead, then catch the free park service bus that skims right by and stops at the lookout points (e.g., Powell, The Abyss, Hermit's Rest) along the car-restricted road. After a long day, near sunset, we especially like to be positioned for nightfall at either Mather... More

You have to see this at least once in your life. Bring your good walking/hiking shoes with proper attire. The trail is great, but there are times when you are going to want to get a little closer. The vastness will take your breath away, or you have no breath. Do not pass this one by...

Incredible place to visit. A MUST SEE in person. No picture or explanation could ever come close to what your eyes actually see. Beautifully laid out with walk ways and trails. Very efficient easy to understand free bus system. Put this on your bucket list!

My family of four visited for two days. This place is amazing!!! We stopped at all of the wonderful lookout spots and the views were beautiful at each. You need to see for yourself because pictures do not do this place justice.

Take plenty of water. We forgot our backpacks and were only able to take a bottle each. Definately take advantage of the free shuttle service as they give you time to rest and cool down in the summer heat.

The Grand Canyon is a must see stop on your tour of the south west. The views here can not be duplicated anywhere else on earth. It is busy in the summer months, so plan to arrive early. Utilize the shuttles, they are great - air-conditioned, comfortable, and the drivers are informative and quick to tell a joke.

This is a beautiful park (but I personally like the Grand Canyon National Park North Rim better). Good canyon views but in the busy summer season you must ride a national park bus to some areas and viewpoints. This takes longer than if you were driving in your own car. It can also be very hot. Wear sun block and... More

I remember visiting the Grand Canyon when I was probably around 10 years old, which was 50 years ago! It has really changed! I remember my family driving up, walking to the edge and pretending they were going to throw us kids over the edge. We took some pictures and we left! We were probably there all of 30 minutes....
