Nothing can prepare you for you for this picturesque wonder.. The only area of the world that made me cry at it's beauty... Pictures/photos will never do this canyon justice..

We traveled to the south rim from Vegas on 8th August with a company called SweetTours. Pickup was at 6:45 and actually on time which really surprised me! The driver was a Hawaiian lady (I've forgot her name) and was very informative and at times comical. We travelled to the Hoover dam then down part of the old Route 66... More

First of all, getting to North Rim is difficult and facilities are limited. South Rim offers everything you need. The views are terrific from just about anywhere. There are two free shuttles which take you anywhere except to the east (Desert Point) and of course to the base of the canyon where no one goes except by a very long... More

We were going to go for the day but a friend recommended staying there at least for one night. It was a little pricey but totally worth it. The most amazing sunset we've ever seen. There are a lot of options for everybody. If you want to hike, there are many trails and if you don't there are free buses... More

The family did 7 NP in 9 days. We hit both GC south and North Rims. The South Rim is very crowded. The hikes are full of folks and it is impossible to find any tranquility. The views are amazing on South Rim. Being able to see the Colorado River is spectacular. It feels like I was looking at a... More

Parking difficult in main parking area. Seemed to be more available in further lots. Must take free shuttle to trails/overlook points. Very crowded. Shuttles get packed very fast. May have to wait for next bus.

This natural landmark was amazing. My family and I spent 5 hours looking at the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon is the best national park I have been to!
