There is no point in my describing the world's number 1 scenic attraction to you as no matter from which viewpoint you view it, the dimensions and grandeur are overwhelming. If you can afford it, take the helicopter tour. Unforgettable!!!

Absolutely a beautiful place. Lots to do in the Village and many beautiful outlooks of the Grand Canyon.

It was our second trip to the Grand Canyon and it did not disappoint. The rim hikes are easy but the Bright Angel Hike is not for beginners. If you are in shape and can hike for 4-6 hours, it's worth the time and effort. If you are not in shape, estimate 1.5 to 2 times the time to get... More

The Grand Canyon was magnificent. The views are breathtaking! The movie at the visitors center was informative. One caution to visitors: Don't expect to eat good food. One buffet we went to looked so disgusting that we had to ask for a refund. Wendy's is the highest ranked restaurant in the area. ALL of the restaurants except McDonalds close at... More

This is one of the greatest sights you will ever see. Every turn and lookout spots seems more imaging than the last. Hiking trails and facilities are first rate.

It's worth the visit, but make sure you make plans to have a meal at the lodge or hike a bit of one of the trails, because after standing agog over the rim for a few minutes, there is little else to do.

I was there in December, so there was snow around which makes place amazing, but I could not go down on river side and I miss a lot, if want to explore everything go in summer. I saw small village which has museum and gift shop. I real enjoyed seeing historical things from native american's life.

Made the drive from Las Vegas. It took a little longer than expected- it's more like 5-6 hours. There's the temptation to stop along the historical sections of Route 66, but I recommend pushing through on the main roads. You want to get to the Canyon before sunset, and this is difficult to do if you make a lot of... More

Drove here from Las Vegas, stopping off for a helicopter ride. That gave us an excellent overview of the canyon but you can't help but be completely blown away (sometimes literally) by the shear scale. Driving along the south rim there are numerous stop off points and every view is a photo opportunity. It's very cold at this time of... More

Can't beat the views here. Consists of 9 stopping points, 8 of which you van drive to and park fairly close to the lookout points. Went today, Feb. 24, 2017 and it was 31 degrees here....rather cold but sunny and not too windy. There were some patches of snow but none on the roads. Best indoor views are from the... More
