Grandview Point or anywhere else - there are no bad views at the GC! You hear people stressing at the info center about the best viewing places - they are all good!

This viewpoint visited my many and can be busy, especially at sunrise and sunset. Just get there early and stake out you place. Also, be aware that an hour before the sun actually sets is the best time to see the reflections on the canyon walls. A nice place to start or end your visit to the Grand Canyon.

This was our first stop on our tour of the Grand Canyon's South Rim. The crowd was small and the rewards of the stop were. great. If you go, be sure to visit this location.

A great place to take pictures! You can see a winding river in the distance of the canyon. The view is awesome! The best thing about this stop is that there are bathrooms! The parking lot is crowded and so is the beginning of the trail.

This is just a gorgeous viewpoint. We came here after visiting many others, and are glad we decided to catch our last sunset in the GC at this rest area. The point feels roomy even with other visitors, plus the Grandview Trailhead just below gives room to spread out and find a place to enjoy the views in solitude.

Sunrise or sunset it is best - the other reviews say it all! We visited in winter and were not disappointed. Clear skies and no crowds. Rug up for the cold.

We were lucky to get to the point by sunrise. The view really made me cry because it was sooo beautiful, breathtaking, magnificent. I don't have much to say because when you see it, you find human vocabulary is too limited.

You have to drive here as the buses don't go this far. It is our favorite vista. Listen for the rapids from the Colorado River! There are other pull offs on the way to this point which are well worth a few minute stop.
