Travelers talk about
Word of mouth has that the more remote, harder to get to and therefore less crowded North Rim offers a more authentic Canyon experience and better views. However, there is no bus service on this rim and it is closed during the winter.

The North Rim is more remote and at a higher elevation than the South Rim making it a pleasant alternative to the south side.

I've been to the South Rim three times, and at least double that for the North Rim. There is no comparison. You won't get the number of motels, gas stations, and services as the south, and you'll have to drive quite a bit more, and...More

There are no words to describe the Grand Canyon if you haven't seen it. The North Rim views are as spectacular as the South (if not better) and it is much more relaxed.
