Nice views and neat place

It was a nice stop for the family. I have a picture of myself there 30 years ago when I was my kids age. The place has some nice history and great views.

We visited the Grand Canyon in the off season and there for were able to drive on Rim Rd, Usually reserved for tour buses during the regular season. Make sure you stop at all the over looks on your way out to the trail head.

Entrance to The Grand Canyon Village at $30 for car and occupants lasts 7 days and includeds all free rides on the shuttle buses. Standard wheelchairs fit on the buses. They really do come every 10 minutes and its easier to park and ride if you have a car. Whatever, the rail station near Maswik Lodge is as far as... More

Many fewer people than the Bright Angel trail. Less well maintained than the Bright Angel trail as well, but a nice walk for the able walker.

There is a cute little gift shop with a fireplace. It was a great photo op to sit on either side of it and have someone take our picture.

The canyon is awesome and the places for viewing are great. The shuttle buses take you to every place for viewing. they run every few minutes and I never waited more that 4 or 5 minutes for the next bus. Usually there was one in less that 2 minutes.

This is the longest, the RED ride, among the Grand Canyon shuttle bus runs. It took us to spectacular views, around 80 minutes if you never got off! (Who doesn't get off?) It got rainy this day, and we didn't finish, but we saw ELK!

If one is lucky, one can see reintroduced condors flying. Colors of the park are outstanding at dusk
