Words can not convey the majesty nor can any photo truly show the magnitude or beauty - How lucky we are to have such natural beauty which is so easily accessible. Absolutely stunning!

I had a very sad feeling that morning. My father was very ill (and would die the next morning). Looking at the grandness of nature, the millions of years it took to craft this landscape gave lots of comfort.

South Rim is a bit manicured given you're looking at one of the seven wonders of the natural world. I gather if you go on the trails in the canyon it is more authentic but as we only had a one night visit we contented...More

I stopped by with my 10 year old son and spent a few hours walking and taking pics. The breath taking scenery is well worth the $35 to get in!

The view from the South Rim is amazing. There are many view points along the way. There are some ruins and a museum to stop and see also. Plan a full day. Lodging available, reserve ahead of time.

Nothing prepares you for your first sighting of the Grand Canyon. It's sheer proportions are mind boggling. There is no better place to start than at the South Rim. Excellent views, good facilities and a good shuttle service make an enjoyable visit possible for all.

Our family and friends drove through in mini-van. It's just breathtaking, pictures don't do it justice. The park is well maintained and clean. We brought a picnic lunch and ate at one of the many picnic tables provided. Bathrooms were readily available and clean.
