A visit to the Grand Canyon is well worth it! We drove from Iowa and hit a couple other National Parks on the way there. My wife and I visited with her parents. Since they are both 62 or older, it only cost $10 for...More

Even if you can't hike in the Grand Canyon, the South Rim has many breathtaking sights and interesting geological and archeological displays. There's a shuttle bus to take you from place to place too!

Awesome experience. $30 to park car, but worth it! I could stand there staring for days. I hiked the man made walkway a good ways down. I am not in shape, but it was so worth it. Bring snacks and water, flashlight, good shoes, camera...More

Lots of choices in dinning and lodging. Book early and I would not go in the summer if it can be avoided. Too hot, crowded, and the views are not great.

The South Rim of the Grand Canyon is absolutely spectacular. A must-see for everyone. This review is more about the actual tour company. Cost was $79 USD, hotel pick-up at 7am drop-off at 9:30pm - long, but worth the time. The bus was in good...More

Unfortunately we had overcast skies during our visit so we didn't see the stars however just step outside and turn the lights off and I'm sure you will get a good star view. best regards

Tusayan is the closest
Hi we are staying in Tusayan at best western and will go into park on the purple shuttle but on our second day we intend to get up early and drive into park to do the desert view road and continue out of park to flagstaff via Cameron, how does that work with the permit/entrance fee? Do we buy the $30 car pass will this allow us to both (2 adults) use the purple shuttle bus the day before? I know it's valid 7 days.
